Your learner driver logbook NSW allows you and your supervising driver s to record your driving experience. Please take care of your log book because if you need a replacement log book, you will need to attend a registry or service centre and pay a replacement fee. Research indicates that learner drivers who increase their supervised on-road experience can reduce their crash risk by 30 per cent, in the first two years of solo driving.
How to fill in your logbook
Learner drivers under supervision have a very low involvement in crashes. It is only when they begin to drive solo that their involvement in crashes increases.
You must log at least hours of supervised driving, including a minimum of 20 hours of night driving, before you can attempt the driving test. Night driving hours are between sunset and sunrise.
For every one hour structured driving lesson you complete with a licensed Driving Instructor, you can record three hours driving experience in your Log Book. A maximum of 10 hours of lessons will be accepted and recorded as 30 hours driving experience. Driving lessons at night between sunset and sunrise count for only one hour of night driving.
The other two hours are added to your day driving hours. Report Content.
