LNP Welcomes LNP’s Plan For Tougher Driving Tests

The Palaszczuk Labor Government has been accused of being void of ideas, after it tried to claim credit for a policy initiated by the LNP Government.

Described as a ‘radical bid’ to slash Queensland’s road toll, the Palaszczuk-Gordon Government has confirmed it would follow through with the LNP’s new Q-SAFE practical driving test.

Acting Shadow Transport Minister Andrew Powell said Labor’s blatant plagiarism was another example of an inexperienced government just making it up on the run.

“The changes to the driving test for learner drivers ‘unveiled’ by the Palaszczuk-Gordon Government today, were actually ‘unveiled’ by the LNP Government almost three years ago,” Mr Powell said.

“In 2012, Minister Scott Emerson outlined the LNP’s plan to overhaul Queensland driving tests for the first time in more than a decade.

“We then underwent extensive public consultation before introducing a hugely successful pilot program to test the changes at seven sites across Queensland.

“For Minister Mark Bailey to try and claim credit for yet another LNP initiative goes to show that this Labor Government has no plan, no policies and no ideas of its own.”
