Learning to drive has been given a 21st Century boost with the introduction of the myLearners app which records the learner’s driving hours.
Centre for Participation Licencing the Wimmera acting coordinator Stephanie Thomson said: “It’s exciting that driving has moved into the 21st Century.”
“Most, if not all, learners have smartphones and this app now means they don’t need to complete the old paper based log book and get it signed by their supervising driver,” she said.
“It’s just a great app, and also stores the information so if the learner’s phone goes flat they don’t lose their hours”.
Leaner Laura Doolan, who used the app for the first time during a drive on Thursday, described it as “cool”, while supervising mentor driver Sandra Bamkin said it was “easy to use” and “better than the book”.
