Stuart Ayres MP, Member for Penrith welcomes the statewide launch of the digital learner driver logbook as an alternative to the outdated paper version.
“This launch is about embracing technology and the digital age,” said Stuart Ayres.
All learner drivers are now able to use one of three apps – Licence Ready, Roundtrip and L2P – to log the required 120 hours of driving practice and then submit their logbook electronically with RMS.
Parents and learner drivers are tired of having to manually enter their hours of driving, so by transitioning to a digital format we hope to make this process more user friendly.
“The apps, Licence Ready, Roundtrip and L2P are now available for free download through the Android Play and Apple app stores and they are designed not to distract learner drivers or their supervisors,” said Stuart Ayres.
The apps include a ‘set and forget’ feature where learners can start their logged drive on the app before getting in the car, and it will record their drive in the background.
We want to ensure learner drivers can focus on the important task of acquiring the skills and experience to become safe drivers.
• Verify a learner’s valid licence
• Verify a supervisor/instructor valid licence
• Electronically submit their digital log book to RMS when at their local Service NSW centre.
In addition to logging hours and verifying details, the apps make use of GPS tracking, automated weather conditions, profile set up as well as summary dashboards.
Learner drivers will be able to work with their supervisors to choose which app suits them best to help build their driver competencies. When not driving learners can also make use of extra features such as video learning content, goal setting and lesson planning.
Customers can speak to their local Service NSW outlet to find out more about how they can start using the Learner driver digital log book today.
