Driving With Your Nova Scotia Learner's Driving Licence (Class 7)

Once you've obtained your Nova Scotia learner's driving licence, you now have the legal right to begin learning how to drive and practice your driving skills in real life. There are however some key NS learner licence restrictions and guidelines you must follow to stay within your licence requirements, and be a safe driver to everyone on the road.

Drive Only Under Supervision

At the Nova Scotia learners license stage, you have to be accompanied by a fully licensed (Class 5 non-GDL) driver who is seated in the front seat every time you practice your driving - no exceptions.

No Alcohol

Your blood alcohol levels must always be at zero when driving a vehicle at the learners license level.

Seat belts

Each passenger must wear a seat belt when the vehicle is moving. Also, the number of passengers cannot exceed the number of functional seat belts.

Restricted Night time Driving

A learner licence holder cannot drive even while under supervision between the hours of midnight and 5 am.

8 Demerit Point Suspension

A NS learner's licence will be automatically suspended if 8 demerit points are accumulated.

Practice, Practice, Practice.

Use every available opportunity to develop your driving skills (with a supervisor). This is the time to really build your driving skills, so practice as much as possible.
