    Default Got my green P's! :)

    Hello froggers! As the title says, I got my green p's today!
    Anyway, I was just wondering where I could get a set of magnetic p plates that don't fly off?
    I had some when I was on my red's but they got stole and someone gave me them.

    Bought a pair for $6 at Caltex think they would be better, they didn't last 3 mintues at 60km/h...

    I knew a couple of girls from Greenpeace. Damned if I can remember the really pretty one's name - other things caught my attention more.

    Bought a set of magnetic p plates from a discount shop for $2 and didn't even fly off on the highway... Servo p plates are a piece of sh*t!

    A little double-back tape and mounted inside the glass? Possible under your regs?

    its to tell other drivers to watch out for radical lane changes, no indicators and excessive acceleration from the traffic lights.

    Don't leave the plates on in high heat... My L plates defaced the rear of my car >.<


    Green Ps for me in January. Luckily for me, WA places no speed restrictions on P plates. How stupid is travelling 90 in a 110 zone? Talk about rage inducing.

    Seriously here is the link tot he New South Wales Licensing Authority webpage discussing Green P's -> http://www.rta.nsw.gov.au/geared/lic...2_license.html.

    Also seriously in NSW at least it is an offence to place the "P" Plates behind the front or rear windows so they won't get stolen; instead they have to be displayed at the front and rear of the car, leading to the great "party" trick of them being stolen and the poor mug driving and needing the plates gets pulled over, a fine and a number of points added to their licence.

    Yup! 90 absolutely killed my patience! 100 makes a lot of difference! I wish NSW would follow, but to many people don't think before they get behind the wheel.

    Yup! And if you're on your red p's, and you get caught with no p plates, that's your license gone!

    Forget about the magnetic ones. I bought my daughter metal framed bracket that can be attached to the number plate (easy to bend if deeded for clearance) and the plastic plates slide into the bracket and can be easily removed and stored inside car and easily replaced when needed. I got them from SuperCheap, for about $15. Two years on they are still doing the job, dont fall off and legal even in NSW.

    Of course now you have green P plates you are immediately cleared for continual use of the right lane at ~15km/h faster than the speed limit. If texting/talking on the phone you can add 10km/h to that.

    Thanks for that 2353. I went ahead and bookmarked the main page so I could look at it more closely later.

    I was looking at the short list of restrictions on the green-P page, and the one that caught my eye was that no passengers are allowed in or on the boot. Got me to thinking- are they allowed on the red-P and L plates? So, reading a bit further, no, they are not. Party poopers.

    Wouldn't you be able to lock your magnetic P in the trunk or glovebox while you're parked? I mean, it covers your drivers license, not your car, the car doesn't need it at rest. Even if you just set it on the center console as reminder to reapply it before you drive off. Maybe a question for one of your local cops or the DMV, sorry, the RTA.

    My drivers licence has just 4 points, one at each corner (although they are a bit rounded off).

    I take my plates off when I am parked sometimes.
    But I was talking about the brackets that screw on to my number plate, these allow the plastic plates to slide in and they don't blow away. Unfortunately, someone decided to steal my brackets instead of my plates...

    They look like this:

    Aye- I see.

    All states have provisional licences, and I think most if not all have learner's permits here in the US, but no state has any external 'L' or 'P' telltale like that. One less thing to nick, I guess.

    Yes fair call, but as you would realise, I was referring the addition of the (demerit) points to the licence.

    So there is no indication whether you're following a provisional driver or not?

    Well you would see swerving in the lanes, speeding, phone held to ear or against the wheel while texting etc. How many indications do you need?

    No- no external indication. Seems an appealing idea, but...

    It's a pity it's not introduced into all states (we don't have it in Tas).

    But then, again, they'd probably want to have a Black P with bright yellow background for Pensioner (old age type)!

    Cant have that (at least until after I stop driving!).
