I would like to know if one has a learner drivers license, can he be assisted by a person with a drivers license less that a year? In other words, how long do you have to have your license before you can assist a person with a learner drivers license?
The current regulations do not specify how long the driver must have held a driving licence before being allowed to supervise a person holding a learner’s licence. There is a requirement that the driving licence must be valid and for the same class of vehicle being driven by the learner driver. See the regulation below.
(2) (a) The holder of a learner’s licence shall, except where such licence relates to a motor vehicle having no seating accommodation for a passenger or to a motor cycle, when driving the vehicle concerned, be accompanied in or on that vehicle by, and be under the direct personal supervision of a person seated next to him or her, or immediately behind him or her, where such person cannot be seated next to him or her, and who is in possession of a licence, other than a learner’s or similar licence, authorising him or her to drive that class of motor vehicle.
