It's seventeen here in the UK too. I think that's about right. I'm learning to drive and am almost ready for my test. First i have to pass my theory, that's on the third of March! I've had ten lessons so far and i think i'm a pretty good driver. Though i hear of lots of accidents. Kids my age like to drink and driving with drink in you really doesn't work. Perhaps the age should be higher but i think many people stay immature anyway.

In India u can get easily a licence if you are 18 years or above.But you can easily get licence without any hardwork even if you are less than 18 in India.I guess this is not possible in Australia as ur law may be too strict and i guess there is no corruption and bribery that much as it is in India

Well here, in India, we have to be 16 yrs to get a learners permit and after 2 months, we can drive vehicles(only without geared). but in order to drive light motor vehicles(cars, etc), we have to be atleast 18 yrs.

The long probationary time is a good idea. In Qld it is 1 year I think, but they don't put p plates on their cars. I think its a great idea to have p plates as well as l plates as it sort of makes other drivers more considerate of the fact they are still new (or teaches you to get out of their way haha)

OMG. I think that is far too young. I have a fourteen year old granddaughter, and I would be horrified at the thoughts of her getting behind the wheel of car in two years time. Here in Ireland, a provisional driving licence cannot be held until age 18 years. Then a driving test must taken in order to get a full licence. I honestly don't know how half the drivers on our Irish roads ever passed a driving test. They are deadly.
