Our free app for learning to drive
We've done something cool. Over the last year, we've been working on an app to help people track their progress as they learn to drive.
The app lets learner drivers record their driving from the moment they get in their driving instructor's car or as soon as they do some extra practice outside of their lessons.
And the best bit: it's free!
How many hours of driving practice (outside of lessons) do you think you had?
We've always been a bit worried about how little driving practice people get before taking their test. That experience is so important to being a safe and happy driver, so we wanted to give people a way to make sure they get the different kinds of driving practice.
The ingenie Learner app
ingenie Learner lets you track your driving lessons and practice time so you know where and when you've driven. You'll get maps and stats for your journeys, tips on learning to drive and countdowns to your test dates.
You'll also earn trophies when you hit milestones like driving in rush hour or getting halfway to the recommended number of driving hours. Your total driving stats show your progress towards test time, so you can decide when you're ready to take the leap.
When you're learning to drive, it can be hard to keep track of how you're doing. ingenie Learner keeps you motivated to get enough driving time before your test, so you'll be a great driver once you're out on your own.
