Targeted to be released by mid-2018, the new program called PrepL will be replacing the current written test for class C learner licence.


An Interactive Learning Experience

PrepL will be an interactive learning experience that will have 380 questions, challenges and activities which can be completed in 6 hours. It seems a lot more compared to the previous exam which only had 30 questions in total but this new test aims to develop safe driving behaviours and attitudes to new drivers. The test will also be including simulated driving scenarios, interviews from people who were affected by fatal car accidents and researchers explaining the effects of texting and alcohol while driving.

All of these it to make younger drivers understand the impacts of the Fatal Five which are drunk driving, drug driving, speeding, not wearing seatbelts and driving when tired. Reports have shown that drivers aged 25 and below are the most likely to be involved in serious car accidents that are caused by the Fatal Five.


The PrepL will be accessible at any time using a smartphone, tablet or computer. This means that anyone can complete the test at their own pace. It also means that you do not need to go to the Department of Transport or Main Roads customer service centre to take it and no need to pay to retake the test.
The program is still being tested and improved but once it is launched, it hopes to instil the importance of road rules and good driving behaviours to the new generation of drivers. Because more than having a good vehicle, driving is all about having the right attitude.
