There are rules learner and probationary drivers need to know when travelling interstate. For example, some states require learner drivers to travel at a speed limit lower than the posted speed limit
One example is NSW where:
- learner drivers with a NSW license are not allowed to travel at more than 90km/h where the posted speed limit is above 90km/h.
- learner drivers with a Victorian license are allowed to drive at up to the posted speed limit.
These rules aren't always clear for motorists travelling interstate and RACV has taken up the matter with VicRoads and the National Transport Commission in an effort to make things clearer for learner and probationary drivers.

RACV recommends printing out the current advice for the state or territory you plan to travel in and taking it with you to avoid any confusion if you're pulled over by local police.
