Mr GRIMLEY (Western Victoria) (12:46): My question is to the minister representing the Minister for Roads and Road Safety. Regional and rural Victoria lacks the vital infrastructure which is needed to keep communities connected, and therefore a driving licence is imperative. In recent weeks I have been contacted by numerous constituents who are worried about lengthy delays in getting a driving test for their son or daughter. While COVID-19 has interrupted their lives, it has not diminished the need for our country communities to remain connected. Rural and regional Victoria is lucky to have far fewer cases of COVID-19 than metropolitan Melbourne. Therefore it is understandable that some constituents are wanting regional VicRoads offices to return to full capacity sooner. My question to the minister is: how long is the current wait time for regional learners to get a driving test appointment, and are there plans to return regional VicRoads offices to full capacity?
