An L-Plater in Victoria has been fined $,1652 for going on a driving lesson with their mother, with the driving lesson  deemed to be “non-essential travel”.

The 17 year old was practicing wet-weather driving and well…I’m so glad my L Plate days are over.

It’s completely understandable that they didn’t think they were doing anything wrong.

Considering they weren’t planning to exit the car at all on their trip and were just doing a driving route.

The police officer told them they were too far from home and would be fined. 

But hey, rules are rules.

What you should know is that these rules are different state by state.


So in Victoria, driving lessons have now been deemed non-essential but in SA it is still okay.

“This is a learning activity that cannot be done from home and is akin to the listed reasonable excuse of travelling to attend an educational institution where you cannot learn from home”, NSW Police informed Daily Mail Australia and now we’re informing you.

So get those hours! By the time we’re out of this mess you might actually have racked up your full quota!
