      Have another look at it, to be sure they havent done this to you to.
      Thanks for the advice. Looked at it and it is definately written as a learners permit. Will wait to see the roper one when it comes through.

      Did go into the police station though and check it out as thought they were bound to know. Explained everything to them and he said if that is what they issued, that that is fine and if I got stopped for any reason, it says that I have a learners so not to worry?!
      Still not convinced but does not seem to think I have to sit it. May be because I have my UK provisonal and am over 21?!

      I know someone who had a British Provisional for years also.When they went in to the licence Office here in Adelaide they were issued with a full licence.Needless to say,they kept it QT.

      If it's a learner permit then you need to abide by the restrictions or you'll get pinched and it will hurt big time. In SA the purpose of a learner's permit is to drive under supervision/instruction and there are a number of restrictions on driving, regardless of your previous skills. When you pass your practical test or the logbook hours you get your Provisional and then later your full licence.
