An email to 3AW’s Neil Mitchell

Good morning Neil,

I have to disagree with you about a “one strike” policy for learner drivers. Learner drivers are learning, and are expected to make mistakes, which is why they have a higher demerit point allowance than provisional drivers.

All you would achieve by banning learners as soon as they make a mistake, is a surge in the number of unlicenced drivers, which means less insured drivers and higher costs to the community from collisions.

The current system isn’t perfect, but it’s pretty darn good.

Have a great day.
