    Did you know that ACT residents receive a 30% good driver discount on their ACT driver licence renewals if they have no relevant traffic offences recorded in the previous five years? Somewhat perversely, the ACT Government notifies you on your licence renewal notice if you're NOT eligible for...

    A driver colleague has advised that Access Canberra is currently taking up to eight weeks to renew Working With Vulnerable People (WWVP) registrations and cards. Where necessary, Access Canberra issues an interim paper-based renewal. The problem is that the Uber system is rejecting the...

    Earlier today, I encountered inspectors from the ACT Roads and Traffic Authority (or RTA for short) at Canberra Airport. I had to produce my licence so they could confirm it was endorsed with a D condition (rideshare). I suspect they also checked that the Uber sticker was in place. The...

    ACT driver licences are now generally renewable online. You immediately receive an interim licence valid for 28 days when you renew this way but the replacement licences themselves take up to 21 days to arrive through the post following renewal. It would be foolhardy to assume that the Uber...

    The ACT Government's Access Canberra (previously Canberra Connect) shopfront in Woden has relocated from next door to the Woden Library to 200 metres or so closer to the Woden Bus Station.
