Displaying P plates
P1 and P2 licence holders must display a P plate when driving a car or motorcycle.
The P plate is red for P1 licence holders and green for P2 licence holders.
Getting P plates
- buy P plates from service stations, major retailers and some automotive shops
- print P plates on a colour printer:
Displaying P plates on your car or motorcycle
The P plate must be a plate or sign:
- measuring at least 14.6cm by 14.6cm
- with an upper case letter ‘P’ in red (P1 licence) or green (P2 licence) on a clear white background.
You must display your P plates so the letter P can be clearly seen at the front and rear of the car (rear only for motorcycles) from 20m away.
You may get a fine and 2 demerit points if you hold a P1 or P2 licence and do not have P plates displayed correctly.
If a person who is not a P1 or P2 licence holder drives the car or motorcycle and does not remove the P plates, they may be fined.
