When you get your car licence you can drive most vehicles up to 4.5 tonnes gross vehicle mass (GVM). This includes cars, vans, utes, minivans (those that seat up to 12 people including the driver), campervans, light trucks (depending on the weight and dimensions), car-based motor tricycles and some agricultural machinery and earth-moving machinery such as tractors and graders.

It takes a minimum of four years to go through all the licence stages, and the first stage is to pass the Driver Knowledge Test, which you can practice on this website. It works on your computer, tablet or smartphone. Bookmark it on your smartphone and you can take the quizzes just before you go in to take the actual driving theory test and the knowledge will be fresh in your short-term memory, too.
