Better Safe Than Sorry
Whether we’re new or experienced drivers, we all make mistakes and can forget what we learned in some of our driving lessons. We definitely don’t want driving mistakes to cost us our driving privileges – or worse, our lives. So, aside from being careful, here are some of the best safe drive apps that can help you on the road. These are available to Android and Apple users.

The ServiceNSW site is a one-stop shop for NSW driver needs. From applying for a driver’s licence to renewing your licence and updating information, you can easily do it all online with the help of the ServiceNSW mobile app for individuals and businesses. The app is free for NSW drivers.

This excellent and all-in-one car management app allows you to keep track of your car expenses and set scheduled payments for your rego checks, car insurance, car servicing, etc., so you can avoid penalties in the future. MMC aims to reduce car ownership costs by $500 yearly.
