Andrews Government failure leaves learner drivers short-changed – again
In yet another failure in a long list from the Andrews Labor Government, the MyLearners logbook app has crashed, leaving thousands of young Victorians in the lurch again.
Since the start of the long weekend, when thousands of learner drivers use the time to get valuable practice, the app has been inaccessible. This has meant learners relying on the app have been unable to log their hours and, perhaps more worryingly, unable to see if driving hours they had previously registered were still there.
To top it all off, users of the app and their parents have heard nothing about the issue from VicRoads. The only way you would know there is a wide-spread problem was if you went to the VicRoads website.
Comments attributable to Shadow Minister for Road Safety and the TAC, Brad Battin:
“This latest failure of the Andrews Labor Government and VicRoads to provide a reliable service to young Victorians is yet another kick in the guts.
“What’s more, thousands of young Victorian learner drivers are wondering if their logged driving time, built up before the app crashed, has been lost due to the incompetence of Daniel Andrews and VicRoads.
“Daniel Andrews must immediately come out and guarantee that the hours previously logged by learner drivers have not been lost.”
