Whether you're learning to drive, or coaching someone who is, our Pass Planner gives you the inside track on everything you need to do. And because it's made by the same people who set the restricted licence test, you can be sure it's stuff you really need to know.

If you're under 20, the blood alcohol limit is still zero. This means you can't have anything to drink at all if you're driving. If you're over 20, the blood alcohol limits have lowered.
