    I have been driving since I was 13 (i live in the Bush) but I have only done 40 hours of legal clocked hours. I am a confident driver.

    I just spoke to my daughter and she said the downside of getting the exemption is that you will have to have your red Ps for two years instead of one.

    I just realised that might be a problem for the lady that said she is working as a nanny and needs to take children to school, because I think there is the limitation that you can only have one person aged under 25 that is not related to you in the car when you have Ps - so she still wont be legally able to take children to school.
    Thanks sweetseven I have looked in to it myself and are talking to the department.

    The restriction is only after 11pm.
    My mistake. Sorry for any confusion I may have caused.

    If you have had your learners in another country for 8 years, can you still apply for the exemption in Qld & go for your red ps before the 2 years is up? I have nobody that has had their opens in this country for a year or more & I can't afford driving lessons. I have 2 children who will be attending prep & daycare next year so I really need my red ps.

    Default I applied for the logbook exemption

    I just got the letter saying I was approved and all I provided was a letter from my mum saying she didn't have a license (she doesn't) and that I had no one else to teach me.

    How long had you had your learners for and how many hours up?

    I was over 18, had moved out of home, and had moved quite a bit since, didn't have many options for people to teach me, and had some payed lessons, and I was also coming up to my third learners license if I didn't get my P's in the next month, so I just went for it and got a letter of approval. Passed my test first go.

Please tell me how it went for you, and how strict they really are.

    Eligibility

    To be eligible for a learner logbook exemption you must hold a learner licence, be under 25 and be able to prove that
    • no car is reasonably available to you to learn to drive
    • no supervisor is reasonably available to supervise your driving
    • the road network where you live is significantly limited
    I think it is the last point which would make it difficult. So unless you live somewhere there are barely any roads and no traffic (like a remote aboriginal community) I dont think you'd have a chance of being approved.

    Have you looked into funded drivers lessons... usually in most states there are charities that do L to P's programs specifically designed for people who cannot afford to pay for lessons.
