If you’ve struggled through the VicRoads Road to Solo Driving Handbook for your learners test, you know the manual is dense, hard to read, and boring.
That’s why we created Zutobi Drivers Ed to help Australians actually learn and remember the road rules. We condensed all the information from the Road to Solo Driving Handbook and other important legislation into bite-sized pieces that are easy to understand. We also added hundreds of illustrations to help prepare you for tricky situations on the road, along with learners test practice questions so you can be confident you’ll ace the real thing.
And to make a normally boring subject fun, we gamified the experience and added levels, points, and you can even compete with friends. There’s a reason 95% of Zutobi users pass their learners test on the first try. Sign up with Zutobi and toss your other study materials—you won’t need them.

Is Passing the Victoria Learners Permit Test Hard?

It depends. Getting a Passing-score is hard if you don’t study (or study ineffectively). About 35% of Victorians fail their learners permit test the first time, and about 50% fail their drive test. Like a lot of Australians, you’ll probably find that just reading the Handbook isn’t enough to help you pass.

But if you study with a proven app like Zutobi, you’ll be surprised how easy it is to pass your permit test. Our streamlined learning modules and permit practice tests make studying easy. There’s a reason that 19 out of 20 Zutobi customers pass their permit test on their first try.

How Many Questions Are on the Test?

The Victoria Learners Test has 32 multiple-choice questions on it, and you’ll need to get 25 correct answers to pass.

What Is It Like to Drive in Victoria?

The Good

Victorian roads have become considerably safer when comparing the last 20 years of data collected by the Transport Accident Commission.

The Bad

According to data published by VicRoads, 266 people lost their lives in traffic accidents during 2019, which is an increase of 25% since compared to 2018.
Males account for about ¾ of all traffic fatalities each year, which means many accidents are avoidable.
About 29% of all fatalities involve speeding as many drivers do not understand how speed affects the stopping distance or vehicle control.
The same report shows that drivers between 16 to 29 have been involved in far more fatal traffic accidents in 2019 compared to 2018.

The Ugly

During the last 10 years, more than 400 pedestrians have lost their lives on Victorian roads. Pedestrians should not die because of driver errors.
In Melbourne, 120 people were killed as a result of traffic accidents in 2019.
During the past 5 years, close to 20% of all drivers who lost their lives in Victoria had a BAC over 0.05.
