drive test vic criteria summary
The Drive Test Criteria produced by VicRoads aims to prepare learner drivers for the practical driving test they must pass to get their red or green Ps.

Although the Drive Test is a practical, in-car assessment of your driving - the theory resources available can still assist your preparation. This handbook outlines the criteria you must meet and skills necessary to pass the Drive Test. It also highlights what you should do to avoid failing. Reading through the criteria (which can be found here under 'Serious errors during the drive test') forms the base for an appropriate preparation for the Drive Test.

Driving Test VIC has produced a summary of the Drive Test Criteria (which condenses and synthesises the 72-page handbook into 39 pages) to help you prepare for the Drive Test. This can be used as a tool for revision.
