You become eligible to apply for a learner licence in Queensland once you have turned 16. This licence will allow you to drive a car (under supervision of course) until you are ready to move on to the first Provisional licence (P1). But, to get the Learner licence, you must first pass a written test by answering 27 questions correctly out of the 30 – that’s 90%.
From experience, tests can either be difficult or easy, it all depends on how much effort you put on the preparations. And just like all other tests you have done in your life, preparation is important if you want to pass – on the first attempt that is.
There are numerous reading materials available with information to help you pass your learner licence exam, but there is nothing that will prepare you for the exam as well as the practical road rules test offered by the Department of Transport and Main Roads of Queensland. This mock exam contains 30 randomly selected questions that are based on actual questions asked during the real test.
These mock exam can be accessed from the Department of Transport and Main Roads website and can help you prepare for the learner licence exam. The test contains 20 road rule questions and 10 give way questions. For it to be helpful, you should first read Your Keys to Driving in Queensland to familiarize yourself with the signs and road rules.
Unlike the actual test, the practice test is free of charge and can be attempted as many times as you wish until you feel you are confident enough for the real thing. Although there are no limits to the number of times you can attempt the actual learner licence written test, you will have to pay a fee and wait another day to re-take the test.
Failing will consume a lot of your time and also lose you a bit of money. It is thus in your interest to pass on the first attempt.
There are several benefits to be gained from taking the mock practical road rules test. These include:
- Knowing what to expect – As I mentioned earlier, the mock questions are random picks from actual questions asked during the real exam. You will get an idea of what kind of questions to expect and how to tackle them. Surprise is never good when you are sitting for an exam.
- Confidence – The more questions you attempt before the actual exam, the more your level of confidence is boosted. When you have confidence, you relax. Panic is one of the major causes of failure in exams.
- Gauging your level of preparedness – You might think that you have adequately prepared for the exam but upon sitting for the mock exam change your mind. The learners practice test gives you the opportunity to gauge yourself and identify areas that require more work.
With adequate preparation and the help of the learner practice test from the Department of Transport and Main Roads, you can be certain that you will pass your learner licence examination on your first attempt.
