SO­CIAL ME­DIA

The Western Star - - NEWS OPINION -

THIS week on Face­book we posted the story about learner driv­ers hav­ing to study on­line and an­swer more than 200 ques­tions be­fore com­plet­ing their 100 hours of driv­ing.

Here’s what you had to say: STEPHEN EDGLEY: I don’t think it’s right to do it on­line be­cause if some­one is in the house just ask a ques­tion and you’ll get told the right an­swer. And also if you’re do­ing the test on a com­puter you can google some things on your phone to get the an­swer. They should be made like any other exam, to sit down at the trans­port depart­ment and do your test.

PETER WIL­LIAMS: I think it should be part of the school cur­ricu­lum.

BAR­BARA SPURRIER: This is just the Learner Li­cence test, they still have to do 100 hours of prac­ti­cal driv­ing and pass their prac­ti­cal driv­ing test with a Qld Trans­port ex­am­iner. Surely any­thing that en­sures they are armed with more knowl­edge is a good thing?
