Can learner drivers still take lessons during the coronavirus crisis?

There is widespread confusion about what constitutes "non-essential travel" during the ongoing coronavirus lockdown period, after a young Victorian learner driver was fined for embarking on a driving lesson with her mother, only to have the fine withdrawn days later. Hunter Reynolds, a 17-year-older learner driver from Victoria, made headlines when she was penalised $1652 by Victoria Police for taking a drive around Melbourne with her mother serving as supervising driver.

Northern Territory extends open speed limit trial

The Northern Territory Government has added a new stretch of the Stuart Highway to its open speed limit network. From September 1, the open speed limit trial will include 72km of the highway from Barrow Creek to just south of the Ali Curung Rail Overpass. The newly added stretch extends the open speed limit zone to 276 kilometres, joining the existing 204km stretch between Barrow Creek and Alice Springs that had its speed limit lifted last year.
