In New South Wales there is a graduated licencing system for driving licences. As such there is a number of steps you will need to complete before you are eligible for a full drivers licence. Therefore you have to complete each step in the graduated licencing program before progressing to the next step.
The Roads & Traffic Authority was formed in 1989 as an agency of the New South Wales Government. The RTA was responsible for major road infrastructure projects as well as motor vehicle registrations and issuing driving licences.
For most residents in Springwood and the Blue Mountains their main contact with the RTA would have been related to motor vehicle registrations and driving licences. Some residents may recall the RTA in Springwood, in fact many people would remember when the RTA merged with the Maritime Services in 2011. The biggest change apart from the name was the fact that you could now get a boating licence at the Springwood RMS.
