No P1 or P2 driver will be able to drive high-powered vehicles – unless for work or exceptional circumstances.
Roads Minister Michael Costa will today announce that from July 11:

P1 and P2 licence holders will be banned from driving turbo-charged, super-charged vehicles (diesel vehicles excepted), eight-cylinder vehicles and those with engine performance modifications. Exemptions will apply where powerful vehicles are required for genuine employment purposes, and where eight-cylinder 4WD vehicles are required by rural drivers;

A LIMIT of one passenger for 12 months will apply for P1 and P2 drivers who lose their licence because of a serious driving offence. The passenger restriction will apply when the licence is reissued;

NEW P-plate positioning, which also shows a driver's allowable speed limit and any restrictions, on licences;

CHANGES will not apply to current P-plate licence holders unless they are disqualified for an offence after July 11; and

I doubt this is true, how are they going to tell you to stop driving your car if you have done a few mods. There not exactly going to dyno each car, send it to a weigh bridge then take the owner to court over every vehicle they suspect has been modified to a 'high-powered' state. I'd assume there would just be a list of banned cars as in Vic.

Can i say without getting my head ripped off, that those kind of rules have basically been in place in victoria for a fair few years. Its just that the Police haven't really been enforcing them.

Really, with half of the d***head i see driving around, i wouldn't disagree with some sort of limits on the cars "P Platers" can drive.
Besides, how would anyone know about anyone having done work to a 6cyl car. They could probably only pick you up on extractors and anything on the outside of the motor.
Besides half of them are as quick as 8's these days anyway.

Yeah the RTA may say that, but any highway patrolman who pulls over a P plater will know immediately if the car is standard or not, and then you get the kick in the but
