    Just been looking at the NSW RMS site about L drivers. Plenty of info about what P1s and P2s can do / drive ....... like 130Kw per ton.
    Can a L driver (legally) drive a V8 ?
    Not that it is going to happen here, nobody but me and missus drives mine, but I'm curious as I can't find an answer in the 'good book'

    Learner can drive whatever they like, so as long as they are with a supervising driver whip out the Lamborghini.

    It does appear to be that way, but in such a highly regulated activity, I thought that it would be spelled out so that there would be no grey areas.

    In Victoria, you can drive anything from a Datsun 120Y to a Bugatti Veyron on your L's, provided you're accompanied by a full licence holder

    Once you hit your P's, that's when the restrictions kick in
