Contributor's comments: This is definitely used in Townsville, and, I'm fairly sure, all through Queensland.

Contributor's comments: I'm VERY surprised to find this being classified as a regionalism. In Qld, it's the official name, as I would have assumed it was everywhere. You better add Qld to the map, and indeed the rest of the country, as I think this is pretty much universal.

Contributor's comments: This expression is definitely used in Melbourne.

Contributor's comments: We just call it a learner's. 'So have got ya learner's yet?'

Editor's comments: After surveying 225 around the country and getting a 98% positive respose we can safely conclude that this is not a regional expression!
