Driving and registrations

Current COVID-19 advice on driving, taking your PDA, paying your rego and visiting our Transport Services Centres.

Practical Driving Assessments (PDAs)

Practical Driving Assessments (PDAs) continue to run as normal.

PDA candidates are required to wear a face mask during on-road tests in vehicles, in line with State Government advice on mask wearing when physical distancing is not possible.

We reserve the right to cancel or reschedule your PDA without an appropriate face mask or a valid medical exemption. Disposable masks are available from Transport Service Centre staff.

If you are feeling unwell or have any symptoms, please do not attend a centre and reschedule your PDA online. 

A reminder that online services are available via DoTDirect (transport.wa.gov.au).

Our Transport Services Centres continue to open as normal.

Face masks are no longer required when visiting a Transport Services Centre, however, masks are required for PDA candidates during on-roads tests in vehicles and encouraged where physical distancing isn't possible.
