Take it into Service Tasmania shop before May 6th. Make sure you fill out the form correctly and complete all sections, your permit may be refused simply because you did not complete all sections. Remember you don't have to have your permit approved before you secure your order with us. We suggest doing it as soon as our online shop opens as we can always cancel your order on collection day if permit was declined.
