    Question Can a Learner still drive the car if their supervisor isnt directly beside them

    Is it allowed for a learner driver to still drive the car if their supervisor inst directly beside them but instead in the back seat.

    I'm 99% sure they have to be in the front seat directly next to the learner driver, in NSW at least.

    New South Wales - no, the supervisor must sit beside you > http://www.rms.nsw.gov.au/documents/...ok-english.pdf
    Queensland - no, they must be beside you > https://www.qld.gov.au/transport/lic.../getting/rules
    Victoria - no, they must be beside you > https://www.vicroads.vic.gov.au/~/me...uide.pdf?la=en
    South Australia - no, they must be beside you > http://mylicence.sa.gov.au/parents-a...earners-permit

    Just a small sample I Googled. Funnily enough NSW was the hardest to find as all the usual websites don't have it mentioned explicitly until you check the road rules which specify the role of the supervisor.
