If you’re under 25 and learning to drive, you must record your driving experience in a log book.
Note: If you are 25 years or older, you are not required to log your driving hours.
How to record your driving experience
You can choose to use a paper log book or a log book app.
The free log book apps help you record and update your driving progress. They calculate your 120 driving hours and ensure you have completed 20 learning goals.
Log book apps
There are currently three free log book apps that are accepted by Transport for NSW (Transport) and Service NSW.
Please note: Transport for NSW is moving to a single log book app model with Roundtrip being the only official app accepted in future.
Roundtrip learner driver log book
If you are a new learner driver, use the Roundtrip learner log book app.
If you are an existing Roundtrip app user you can continue to log hours in the app. There is no change or further action required.
If you are using the L2P or Licence Ready learner log book apps, please refer to the information below.
L2P learner driver log book
From 29 February 2024 L2P will no longer be accepted by Transport for NSW as an official app for submitting learner log book hours.
If you are currently using the L2P app and are unable to submit your log book by this date, your hours can be transferred into a paper log book by Service NSW.
To transfer hours:
- Visit a Service NSW Centre with the paper log book you were issued. If you no longer have a log book, the service centre will supply you with one at no extra cost.
- Bring a PDF export of your hours from the app of your driving record, or
- If you experience difficulties exporting your hours as a PDF, bring your device with the L2P app which shows your completed hours. You may also need to provide evidence of completed learning goals and credited Safer Driver Course hours if applicable
The service centre will transfer your completed hours into the log book for you.
You may then continue to add your hours in the paper log book.
Licence Ready learner log book
If you are an existing Licence Ready user, you can continue to use the app to log your hours until further notice. Be assured any hours logged in the Licence Ready app will not be lost.
Submit your driving hours online
When you finish your required log book hours, use the app to submit your driving hours online at least 48 hours before your driving test.
