RACQ's new learner driver app
Learner drivers now have access to a new app to help them log their 100 hours.
Recording 100 hours of driving in a logbook can be tedious, but it is an important part of learning to drive.
To make the process easier and more enjoyable, RACQ has created a new Learner Driver app to help drivers accurately record and protect their time behind the wheel.
The hours logged online via the app are saved, meaning you don’t run the risk of losing the record, plus once you have completed your logbook, it’s easy to submit it directly to the Department of Transport and Main Roads for approval.
Drivers can save multiple supervisor details, driving school instructor details, multiple vehicles and view a full history of their drives.
Supervisors and driving school instructors can choose to insert a four-digit pin to approve a drive or can have the trip emailed to them for approval.
Best of all – the first 10 hours completed with an accredited driving school instructor will be tripled automatically for you online and there is a clear dashboard, so you can keep track of your hours and the countdown to your practical driving test.
Mistakes can be easily corrected, with approval from your supervisor, and safety messages will be sent to you to remind you not to use your mobile phone while driving.
Learner drives between the age of 16 and 19 years of age, who are not already RACQ members, can sign up to RACQ's Free2Go program via the app and gain access to a great range of membership benefits. These include:
