All too often we see passengers on their Phones in cars being driven by Learners, P1 & P2 license holders.

It is a drivers responsibility to know of any New rules that are passed at any time. 

Learner, P1 and P2 license holders

Restricted licenses holders including learner, P1 and P2 drivers and riders are not permitted to use their phone at all

while driving or riding.

This means the Driver and Passengers of Learners, P1 and P2 license holders can NOT use their mobile phone while the

car is moving.

The car must be pulled over and parked, stationary and secured with the engine off.

If you get pulled over by the police and have a digital license, the driver must inform the officer first before reaching for

you mobile phone when asked for their license.


*Stay well informed and check the RMS website in your State or Territory regularly, so if any new rules are passed you wont

be caught out!
