I have recently moved to Canberra from Victoria, and am trying to get my driver’s license. I have logged over 100hrs of driving, so I do have basic driving skills, but I failed a test in Victoria before I moved. So I am pretty keen to do it through the log-book system, as I was going to have some more lessons any way to make sure I am really okay to be driving alone… my confidence is pretty shattered after failing, even though I know a lot of people do first time.
However, I am finding it hard to find info on how this works. I am not fussed about how many lessons it takes (which seems to be what everyone wants to know!) – I’m happy for it to take as long as I need to be competent. But I am more interested in how it actually works. For each competency, is it like a mini test? Or do they only test you on competencies at the ‘review’ stage? It would be great if someone who has gone through this system could explain a bit about what happens in a lesson.
