The NSW government has launched a digital learner driver logbook as an alternative to the outdated paper version.
All learner drivers can now use Licence Ready, Roundtrip or L2P to log their 120 hours driving practice, and then submit it electronically to RMS.
Parents and learner drivers will not longer need to manually enter their hours, making this process more user friendly.
The apps are designed not to distract learner drivers or their supervisors and ensure learners abide by all applicable road rules relating to the use of mobile phones in vehicles.
The apps include a set and forget feature where learners can start their logged drive on the app before getting in the car so it records their drive.
Licence Ready, Roundtrip and L2P digital log book apps are available to download via Android Play and Apple app stores.
Customers can speak to their local Service NSW outlet to find out more or go to the RMS website rms.nsw.gov.au/
Improve Your Mental Health
Local residents are urged to check in with friends, family and colleagues during October’s Mental Health Month.
With our busy lives and conflicting priorities, I encourage the community to focus on mental wellbeing this month.
The theme for Mental Health Month 2017 is ‘Share the Journey’, to highlight the importance of social relationships to improve overall mental health.
Maintaining good relationships can improve our ability to cope with life’s challenges and help build resilience in trying times. Research says 45 per cent of all Australians will experience some form of mental illness in their lifetime, and those who don’t will likely know someone who does.
If you or someone you know needs crisis support, call Lifeline on 13 11 14. For mental health services contact the NSW Mental Health Line on 1800 011 511.
