Licenced driver to accompany a licenced learner driver


I have a valid learners licence. May I drive with 4 passengers in the car & only one of them have a valid drivers licence? Secondly,the one that have drivers licence must he sit in front next to me,or can he sit at the back seat? Thanks for clearing this up.


• A licenced learner driver may have passengers in the vehicle provided they do not pay a fare, AND
• S/he must be accompanied in the vehicle by a driver who holds a valid driving licence for the same class of vehicle being driven, AND
• That licenced driver must sit in the front seat, next to the learner driver.
• And ... while on the subject ... a licenced learner driver is allowed to drive on freeways too.
