Getting your L's in Canberra

The Road Ready Course is provided by most ACT schools free of charge as part of their year 10 curriculum.

The course is available during the day, in the evenings and at weekends. To make a booking, telephone 6162 5152 or 6282 8990. The website address is ACT Government Learner Licence course.

The website includes some excellent resources including:

ACT Road Rules Knowledge Test
