Default WHV+Driving lessons

So, I'm on a working holiday visa for 12 months and I'm thinking of doing some driving lessons.

I know it takes up to three years to get a full license but has anyone else done this and know how it works here? I'm thinking it'll at least make it easier for me to get going and pass my test quicker when I get home, even if I don't drive properly here...

In Queensland it take four years to get to Open (Pedantic and irrelevant to you). You can get your Learners here if you can provide the necessary ID as well as the necessary fees and completed form. Producing the ID could be the stumbling point.

I'm in Victoria at the minute (Melbourne). So it is possible to just get a learners permit and start lessons? It's more so I can just get some lessons in and actually start working towards it so maybe when I go home I can get my license quicker there.
