COVID-19: Updates on Department of Transport services

Digital learner log book

The Learner Log Book has gone digital with the introduction of the Learn&Log app.
  • Record your minimum 50 supervised driving hours anywhere, any time.
  • ‘Set and forget’ so no one needs to touch the phone while driving.
  • The app calculates for you - no need to add up hours and minutes.
  • Keep track of your five (minimum) night time hours.
  • Pre-enter supervisors so they can sign off.
  • Easily transfer from paper to digital.
  • Send your (minimum) 50 hours straight to DoT when completed!

  Get started and download

Download from the App Store or Google Play - Learn&Log is compatible with mobile phones using iOS (version 11 or above) or Android (version 7 or above).

To use the app you must hold a valid WA learner’s permit and be a new driver’s licence applicant. Simply log in using your DoTDirect credentials and you will be on your way.

  Safe use of the app

Driver distraction is a problem on our roads. It’s recommended the supervising driver starts the trip within the app while the learner is safely parked. The phone should be put aside so the supervisor can focus on the learner driver.

Remember: It is illegal to use a hand held mobile phone while driving.

Visit the Road Safety Commission website for more information.

  Adding your driving instructor

An accredited WA driving instructor has a unique licence number, so you’ll need to enter their details in a slightly different way from adding parents or friends.

In the ‘Add Supervisor’ screen, simply uncheck the box that says ‘Is this a WA licence?’ and enter all details as requested. Easy!

  Switch from paper log book

If you started learning with the paper log book, there are two ways to change over to Learn&Log.

  1. Pick up where you left off and complete the rest of your supervised hours in the app. Use the ‘Paper Book’ section to enter the total time signed off in your paper copy. For your practical assessment, bring your paper Learner Log Book including the Declaration of Completion signed by you and a supervising driver.
  2. Add all past trips into the app including date, time, and day and night hours. The supervising driver will need to sign off each trip. For your practical assessment, you don’t need to bring the Learner Log Book, as you’ve signed and submitted the Declaration of Completion within the app.

  Learn&Log privacy policy

The Department of Transport (‘Department’) operates within the Western Australian legal jurisdiction and is bound by the laws of that jurisdiction. The Department recognises the importance of protecting the privacy of personal information.

The Department is bound by the State Records Act 2000 (WA). When you use the Learn&Log App (‘App’) or the DoTDirect website (‘DoTDirect’), you consent to the Department's use of any information provided by you such as your name, driver’s licence number and phone number for the purposes outlined below.

Your email address will only be used for the purpose for which you have provided it and it will not be added to a mailing list or used for any other purpose without your consent.

Where relevant, the Department may record information about your use of the App. This information may include but is not limited to when and how the App is used and the pages accessed.

We will not use or disclose information collected about you other than for a purpose made known to you, a purpose you would reasonably expect, a purpose required, authorised or permitted by or under any law, or a purpose otherwise authorised by you.

Such situations where the Department may need to disclose personal or other information is where the Department has reason to believe that doing so is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against anyone damaging, injuring or interfering (intentionally or unintentionally) with the Department’s rights or property, users, or anyone else who could be harmed by such activities. The Department may disclose information when it believes in good faith that the law requires disclosure.

You can request access to the information we have collected from you if you have any concerns about the accuracy or extent of that information.

If you tell us you do not wish to have your personal information used for a particular purpose, we will respect your wishes.

The State Records Act determines when the Department will retain or destroy records of personal and other information.

The Department strives to ensure the security, integrity and privacy of personal and other information. The Department uses a variety of physical and electronic security measures including restricting physical access to the Department’s offices and firewalls and secure databases to keep personal information secure from misuse, loss or unauthorised use or disclosure. Although the Department makes every reasonable effort to ensure the safety and security of the information you submit to and receive from the App and DoTDirect, the Department cannot guarantee aforementioned safety and security.
