Emissions: the removal/upgrade of an exhaust is a bit of a grey area.. the green side doesn't like it (much like Cali?) where, most of the boys in blue will turn a blind eye unless you're rattling the plates off the shelves 3 streets away.. we have a noise limit of 98db i think, most of the exhausts on the market are WELL above that... but it's usually overlooked unless you're asking to be pulled over. Cat removal is a big no-no with regards to the EPA, but again, if you're not asking to be pulled up and have it on when inspection time comes around, you'll generally OK.
Licensing wise, our 'Learner' stage, is a strict 15 months, no extensions. In that time, you must complete a "check ride" which confirms you still have the skill learned from the training received when obtaining your learners permit, then you must complete your license assessment, no less than 3 months after the issue date of your learners permit and at least 1 month AFTER you have completed the 'check ride' but within the 15 months. After all that, depending on your age and licence factors, they determine what license type you get: Probationary, Restricted etc... they still have various restrictions for the following 3 years, but it depends what restrictions you're given..
- Obtain learner permit (valid for 15 months.
- Complete 'Check Ride' competency test some time after gaining your permit.
- Complete your License Test.
- Get some form of License..
