There are three licensing stages before obtaining a full unrestricted license and each comes with a cost. Refer to the Driverli blog article “How to get your driving license in NSW” to read more on each licensing stage requirements.

The tables below describe the various costs for a new driver to progress from the learner license to a full license.

Currently, the average cost to get your full license is ~$1,450. This cost includes the use of a driving school for a structured 10 hours lessons package (10 hours of lessons with a certified instructor provides 30 hours in the logbook), a Safer Drivers course (this 5 hours course provides 20 hours in the logbook) and a final lesson with the presentation to RMS driving test. More info on the Safer Drivers course here and the various type of Logbook you can use, here.
