Lodging Your Written Learner Logbook
Once you have completed and filled out your 100 hours, you can submit your written Learner Logbook to any Australia Post office for it to be sent to the Department of Transport and Main Roads for approval. You can now submit your logbook with a signed copy of the Driving Experience Declaration form before you turn 17 year old, to ensure all of your required paperwork is completed and approved before sitting your practical driving test. You still need to hold your Learners Permit for a minimum of 12 months before sitting the driving test. It takes at least 12 business days for DTMR to receive and process your logbook.
