L-platers with licences that expire while COVID-19 health restrictions are in place will have a wait before they get behind the wheel again.
Driver testing in regional NSW has been suspended until September 10 in response to the latest health advice and risks associated with COVID-19, Service NSW reports.
The agency was making every effort to contact affected customers and rebook driver tests, and apologised for any inconvenience, a spokesperson said.
