Mixed messages from the Andrews Labor Government over online Learners Permit testing

Despite repeated calls from the Liberal Nationals to move the Learners Permit’s test online, mixed messaging from the Andrews Labor Government continues to leave learner drivers in the dark.

Following a question posed by the Liberal Nationals during the Public Accounts and Estimates Committee on August 13, the Department of Transport said they are ‘exploring multiple technical solutions’ to support the ‘future’ online delivery of the Learner’s Permit test.

Or are they?

Correspondence between a parent of a prospective learner driver and the office of the Minister for Roads, Ben Carroll, suggests the opposite.

Whilst the Minister’s office confirmed new online offerings were being developed, the Learners Permit test would not be one of them.

Is it any wonder learner drivers are confused and worried about when they’ll get their drivers licence?

Comments attributable to Shadow Minister for Road Safety and the TAC, Brad Battin MP:

“The confusion between Labor Ministers and Departments is emblematic of the issues that have been plaguing our roads, registration and licensing systems for years.

“Labor's Roads Minister must immediately front the media tell the hundreds of thousands of prospective learner drivers whether or not they will have a chance to do their test online.

“The Learners Permit test can be facilitated online and Labor's Roads Minister needs to make it happen now.”
