The world of driver education continues to advance at a fast rate with new technology helping authorities to deliver more effective and streamlined training and testing. In Queensland the latest development in driver testing is the PrepL system has been progressively rolled out across the state.
So, what is PrepL and how does it deliver a better learning and testing experience.
PrepL is a new Queensland Government online learning and assessment program that’s designed to replace the current 30-question paper-based written test for class C (car) learner licences.
Now here’s some of the benefits. PrepL provides comprehensive road rules instruction teaching why road rules exist, in addition to learners experiencing the consequences of poor driving behaviour through the virtual learning environment. PrepL can be used across multiple devices (smart phones, tablets and computers).
According to Qld Transport PrepL is “designed to improve learner driver education by focusing on developing safe behaviours and attitudes. It will ensure new drivers know the road rules and understand the impact of the fatal five road behaviours: speeding, seatbelt use, fatigue, distraction, and drink and drug driving.” Ref: https://www.tmr.qld.gov.au/About-us/News-and-media
PrepL was rolled out on a limited trial basis and following a comprehensive review and testing was rolled out statewide. The new system appears to have been a successful move on behalf of the Queensland Government with surveys of the pilot participants showing 96% rating PrepL as ‘good’ or ‘very good’.
