ACT Logbook Competencies
The logbook system involves 23 competencies and 2 revision point assessments before completing the final driving assessment.
At Pass First Go, we have ACT Accredited Driving Instructors who can conduct your revision point assessments and final driving assessment (Competency Based Training & Assessment) so you don’t need to do the one-off practical driving assessment with Access Canberra. When you have finished your logbook, your accredited driving instructor will issue you with a certificate of competency which you can take to Access Canberra.
However, if you would like to complete the one-off assessment with a Government assessor, you can use our driving instructor’s car for the driving test and have a warm up lesson beforehand to help you ease your nerves and ensure you’re prepared for the test.
Logbook Hour Requirements
The number of logbook hours that you’re required to complete depends on the age of the learner licence holder:
- Learner drivers under the age of 25 are required to complete 100 supervised driving hours including 10 supervised hours at night time.
- Learner drivers who are 25 years of age or over are required to complete 50 supervised driving hours including 5 supervised hours at night time.
Bonus Logbook Hours
For the first 10 driving instruction hours, you will get 30 supervised hours recorded in your logbook. Book a 10 hour lesson package with a Pass First Go Accredited Driving Instructor online!
