Some will claim that they have passed the test with little or no study. It is possible, but there are too many questions you need to know the answer, not just guessing.
If unsure about a question, leave it and come back to it later, another question may jog your memory.
Medicals. VicRoads often requires a Medical Certificate from your Doctor before issuing a Learner Permit. Medicals are required for both physical and health issues. If in doubt ring Vic Roads 13 11 71 and check before Test day.
