I live in Hong Kong and the legal framework is below:

The learner licence is legally required for a learner to learn to drive on the 
road (because driving without a licence is an offence). Once a learner has got 
the learner licence, he can legally drive on the road under the following 
restrictive conditions:
- in specified times
- with an instructor (i.e. with the corresponding instructor licence) aside 
(except motorcycles)
- on a vehicle that the instructor can interfere the braking system (except 

The learner can drive on all public roads under the above restrictions, except
- motorways
- roads where a road sign forbidding learner exists (that's *exactly* why this 
tag is needed).
