    Default How hard is it to get a learner logbook exemption in QLD?

    Ive been told its really hard. Well someone told me that even not having anyone to teach you or not being able to afford driving lessons isnt enough. Well then why do they have it? I want to apply but I dont want to be wasting me money if I have no chance. Has anyone ever applied and been approved, or declined? Please tell me how it went for you, and how strict they really are.

    My cousin, who's a bit of a larakin, got an exemption by making up some horrible story about how his mother can't take him out as she is caring for his mentally ill sister!!!! It isn't true at all, he's just very inappropriate and politically incorrect!

    The only reason I ask is because, I got my L's when I was 16, my mum didn't have her license so I didn't get enough hours and it expired, I'm now 21 have done all my hours and can go for my P's in June but have lost my logbook in moving houses!!! I have 2 kids and another due in July. I need my licence...

    In Qld you dont need to if your over 25 either. But I cant really want over 2yrs for that. I have no family, no friends to teach me, and really no money to spare for all the lessons it would take. I have an autistic son that needs to go to speech therapy and OT appointments and honestly having a car would be so much more easier then taking him on public transport. And I cant take my 2 kids out by myself on public transport cuz I need my eyes on my boy incase he runs, and my girl is too small to walk long distances and I dont have the money to buy one of those big 2 seater prams. And DP cant get a job til I do cuz as I said above I cant take 2 kids out by myself. Does it sound like I have any chance. Sorry for the rant, its just all so frustrating.

    I. Had them for 3 years when I was 16 and it will be a year since I've renewed them in June, mum has supervised, I had to wait until she got her license back to renew because no one else could take me

    Sorry for crashing. My sister got an exemption purely because she had no one to take her. From memory she did mention something about needing it for work (she's a nurse), but she had no issues getting the exemption. If you write what you wrote above in your application I can't see you having any issues with getting approved. Good luck!
