Once you sign up you can start to record your trips. The app lets you record and submit your driving hours direct to the Department of Transport and Main Roads, and enables your logbook review process to start sooner.
The app can operate without an internet connection after you have downloaded it and logged in. The app records current trips using a timer, and details for past trips can be entered. Driver trainer and night time travel indicators to automatically perform driving hour calculations are also included in the app.
Your app logbook entries are stored securely and can be accessed by installing and logging into the Queensland Learner Logbook app on another device.
Sign into the app
To use the Queensland Learner Logbook app you must be at least 16 years old. You will need your valid Queensland learner licence, a mobile phone or tablet using iOS (8 or above) or Android (5 or above).
You need your:
- email address
- full name
- password (that you create when you sign up)
- date of birth
- learner licence number
- phone number.
Your details entered must match the details on your learner licence.
Enter your vehicles and your supervisor’s details
You need to record the registration number of each vehicle used for your trips into the app.
Your supervisor’s details will need to be recorded including their:
- first and last name
- licence number and place of issue
- phone number
- email address (the email address must be different to yours).
Your supervisor details entered must match the details on their driver licence. Each supervisor you drive with will need to be added.
Supervisor approval for your trips
Your supervisor doesn’t need to download or use the app but they need an email account that is different to yours. After each trip is entered into the app, your supervisor will receive an email to approve your trip hours. The email will contain the details of the trip and links for your supervisor to approve or reject the trip. Your supervisor doesn’t need to keep the email after they have actioned it.
If a supervisor does not approve a trip or rejects a trip, these hours won’t count towards your total.
Moving interstate, can I still use my app?
You will need to contact the relevant licensing authority interstate to see how your learner logbook will be assessed.
You can receive a record of your driving hours in Queensland by using the Email my Progress option from the actions menu. This can be accessed from your Profile in the app.
Switch to the app from the hard copy logbook
If you are already using the paper logbook and want use the app there are 2 options.
To use the app for the remainder of your trips only:
- Make sure the records in your logbook up to date, and take note of the outstanding hours you still need to complete to reach the target of 100 hours.
- Using the Change Hours feature accessible from the Profile screen of the app, change the default target hours from 100 to the number of outstanding hours you still have to complete. Use the app to record these outstanding hours, and submit them electronically. At the same time, submit your hard copy logbook by mail.
When both the hard copy and app logbooks are received they will be processed at the same time.
You can update the app with all of the prior trips already recorded in your logbook and continue using it for the remainder of your 100 hours. If you do this, you will only need to submit the electronic logbook using the app.
Switch to the hard copy logbook from the app
If you didn’t get a hard copy logbook when you got your learners, you can get one from a transport and motoring customer service centre.
To submit the hours already completed in the app, use the Change Hours feature from the Profile screen of the app to change the app’s default target hours from 100 to the number already recorded. Then complete and record the outstanding hours in your hard copy logbook, and send it to Department of Transport and Main Roads by mail.
