Learner's Permit Test: Information for students

A driver's licence is one of the most valuable privileges anyone can have. Students successfully completing the Keys for Life program are provided with the opportunity to undertake the Learner's Permit Test at school. Those who pass are granted exemptions for the Learner's Permit application process by the WA Department of Transport

Preparing for the Learner's Permit Test

Use any of the following to prepare for the Learners' Permit Test:

Applying for a Learner's Permit with a Keys for Life Certificate

In Western Australia, Learner’s Permit applications are processed between 8:30am – 3:45pm, Mondays to Fridays at Driver and Vehicle Services (DVS) centres. Students presenting a valid* Keys for Life certificate during the Learner's Permit application process will be eligible to receive the following exemptions from Transport DVS:

  • An exemption from sitting, passing and paying for the Computerised Theory Test (CTT) at the DVS centre.
  • An exemption from presenting one of the five Proof of Identity (POI) forms.

*A valid Keys for Life certificate is one that is current (certificates are valid for 2 years), correctly completed by the Keys for Life facilitator, and the student’s name is exactly the same as their other legal identification (e.g. birth certificate). The certificate does not need to include middle names.

Replacing Certificates

If you lose your Keys for Life certificate contact your school (or agency) to arrange a replacement. A replacement certificate is valid for two years, commencing from the original date of issue.
