as was said on you other post
Moving on from a junior licence to an adult licence.
A junior licence will be considered valid beyond the 18th birthday of the licence holder if the junior licence holder submits an application for an adult licence in the same category before their 18th birthday.

Where an application is received by the Licensing and Regulation Division prior to the 18th birthday of the junior licence holder, the licence will remain valid until a determination on an adult licence application is made by the Chief Commissioner of Police.

Juniors who are awaiting a determination on their full licence must still abide by the conditions in their junior licence, including the requirements to carry and use firearms under supervision. Failure to abide with the conditions may affect any pending licence applications.
