Can I use the digital log book while I'm driving?
Absolutely not. It is illegal for a learner to use any function of a mobile phone while driving. This includes when waiting at traffic lights or while in traffic. You must be safely parked out of the line of traffic to use your phone in any way.

You can then put the phone away, and the app will record your drive in the background.

Can my supervising driver or passenger use a mobile phone while I'm driving?
Yes, as long as it doesn't distract you while you're driving, or them from providing you with the assistance and guidance you need while you're building your skills and confidence. It's important that supervisors and passengers understand the danger of distraction, and don't distract you while you're practicing driving by using their phones. We recommend that supervisors and passengers keep the phone use to a minimum while they're in the car with you
If I the L2P app, do I still need to fill out the paper log book?
You can choose to use either an app, or the paper log book, but not both. When making your decision you may want to consider the availability of phone reception in your area - if you have problems with reception you might want to stick with the paper log book.
Can I switch from one app to another?
You can, but you won't be able to transfer your driving hours from one app to another. If you want to change apps, you'll need to manually enter your hours into the new app.
