L-plates requirements

Driving with a learner's permit means you need L-plates on the vehicle so drivers know you are an inexperienced driver.

L-plates must meet the following requirements;

  • The minimum size is shown here. L-plates must have the letter L printed in black on a yellow background. 
  • L-plates must be clearly visible from the front and rear of the vehicle. 
  • No L-plates should be displayed on the vehicle when the driver is not a learner driver (except when a licensed driving instructor is driving).
