Driving test update

Please note that our customer service agents cannot book or cancel driving tests over the phone or offer any updates on waiting times, so we kindly ask that you do not telephone our call centre for this information. 


Test appointments are solely by invitation

Test appointments are by invitation only so if you’re already on the driving test waiting list, no further action is needed. We’ll contact you directly when slots become available.


If you have received an invitation to book a test, need to cancel a test, or wish to join the waiting list, please go ahead and sign in to MyRoadSafety now.

Under current restrictions, we can only offer tests to essential workers. If you’re an essential worker who has already applied for a test and completed all your driver training please fill in this form and we’ll prioritise your application.


If you’re not an essential worker and have an upcoming appointment scheduled, please cancel your test. Don’t worry, you won’t lose your fee and you will be kept on the waiting list. Know more

Extended rearward-facing child seat

Only move your child out of a rearward-facing baby carrier when their head has crowned the top of the seat, or they have gone over the maximum weight outlined by the manufacturer. Some extended rearward-facing seats can accommodate children up to 25kgs (55lbs) in the rearward position. They are larger than the Group 0 rearward-facing seats and, therefore, need to be fitted into the car. Make sure they can be fitted safely and securely into the car, as some cars may not be suitable.

A baby’s head is five times heavier on their bodies than an adult head on an adult body. Therefore, babies need extra support to protect their neck and head from a whiplash-type injury. Because of this, rear-facing car seats provide more support for your baby than forward-facing seats. They protect your baby’s head and neck much better than a forward-facing car seat does. This is because, in an impact, the force is spread out much more, rather than being focused completely on the baby’s neck, as would be the case in a forward-facing child car seat. (See Child Safety in Cars DVD.) Children should use these rear-facing seats for as long as possible.
