Getting Your P1

Getting your P1 (Red Ps) licence is extra special, as it will be the first time you will become a solo driver. The test however is no walk-in-the park and requires some serious preparation.

What happens in the test?

Moving from your Ls to your Ps will require a practical driving test in which a RMS testing officer accompanies you on a short drive. During this drive, the testing officer will tell you what to do and what manoeuvres to make (e.g. three points turn, reverse-park etc). You will be assessed on a variety of test criteria and told whether you have passed or not at the end of the exam.

Learners can only attempt the driving test after logging a minimum of 120 hours of driving and holding their license for one year.

When you've passed

Before texting all your friends and updating your Facebook status about it, there are a few things you need to realise about your P1 license. Firstly, P1 drivers are at the highest risk of accident according to statistics and it is therefore important to note the dangers of solo driving. Thankfully, you won’t have to transition to solo driving alone. As a part of Leyla Driving School’s Safety 4 Life initiative, we will be on hand to help you with any issues regarding any issues with transitioning into solo driving. We’ll even get in touch with you to make sure everything is going smoothly.
