P1 Your Way driver tests a road to success
The P1 Your Way private P1 driver assessments pilot program has been a huge success and will be continued.
Since commencing in September 2019 the program has seen more than 16 500 P1 driving tests undertaken by accredited private assessors, giving learners greater choice on where and how they sit their P1 assessment.
With around 65 per cent of all P1 assessments undertaken during the pilot period being done by private assessors, P1 Your Way will now become permanent.
During the pilot, the number of accredited assessors increased from nine to 21, covering each part of the State and in both urban and rural locations.
It means that learner drivers will be able to continue to go to either a Government driving assessor or private driving assessor to take their P1 driving assessment and can pick the best option for them.
The pilot saw seven private assessors across the North-West and West Coast, eight across the North, North-East and East Coast and six across Southern Tasmania, with the Longford, Ulverstone and Wynyard areas solely supported by private providers.
