The process of getting a licence is expected to be streamlined due to a pilot program in the works.
The state government is seeking suitable qualified instructors to take part in its Enhanced P1 Assessment pilot to help cut wait times.
Infrastructure Minister Jeremy Rockliff said it was the first time the private sector would be able to conduct provisional licence assessments.
It would also increase appointment times and locations that P1 tests could be taken, he said.
Under the pilot, nine current L2 Authorised Driving Assessors who have conducted more than 75 assessments in 2018 are sought to undertake the P1 assessments.

The selection process would involve the assessment of the experience and capability of the applicants, the undertaking of compliance audits of L2 assessments with real clients captured by in-car cameras, and a five-day P1 assessor training course with theoretical and practical exercises.
The pilot is expected to begin in September, and would run for at least 12 months.
Mr Rockliff said the outcomes would guide how the state government would make long-term improvements to the delivery of the state's driver assessments.
