    I see a sensible young man who is wanting to either do a trip into NSW or moving interstate and checking on RTA requirements. Different states may have different regulations as to weights, engine sizes etc for vehicles driven by P platters as they do with motorcycles.

    Enjoy your trip / move to NSW Rob.

    Just remember that Provisional license holders can only do certain speeds in NSW (ie. A red P plater is restricted to 80 km/h and a green P plater 90 km/h)

    Problem with the last 2 comments.
    If he was sensible he would drive a camry.
    And Kombi's can't go over 80 anyway! Well mine can't cause it is in M/PH:lol:

    BTW- You can drive a Kombi in P plates in QLD too. Just incase you get this far up.
    Goes on engine size, turbo's etc... I think.

    Wouldn't it be nice if you had to know the road rules before you were issued a licence?

    Infact it is, Red P plates is restricted to 90km/h and Green P is restricted to 100km/h.

    Red P platers are only allowed 1 passenger under the age of 25 after I think 11pm.

    Both are required to have a Zero BAC.

    Sensible and Camrys do not normally go hand in hand in NSW, Every accident I see involves at least one. :p

    Ohh my bad! I had a feeling that's what it was, but I decided to go on the safe side and say 80km/h. ha!

    I remember getting my "L's", way back when, and having to watch all those rules...

    Before that, I wasn't old enough to get the learners permit, and just kept up with traffic! :eek:

    Do you mean that you drove in NSW with a QLD permit? (They are only valid in the issuing state)

    Yup! I even got pulled over a few times too, and nothing was said about it not being valid?

    I went onto the Main Roads website before I drove in another state for the first time, and they only thing they mentioned was the speed limit you had to abide by in NSW.
