The software, part of the Drive iQ learner test, was debuted at St Helena Secondary College with year 10 students.

"We are always looking for new ways to engage with the next generation of young drivers and provide them with the best opportunities to learn about how to be safe on our roads," said Brumby.

The new software will complement existing licensing systems.

"These new tools, along with the benefits of our successful Graduated Licensing System (GLS), will provide yet more road safety experience for young people learning to drive," said Roads and Ports Minister Tim Pallas.

ZDNet Australia contacted the Roads and Ports department for information about the development of Drive iQ, but had not received a response at the time of writing.
