My daughter is fully trained at daycare and will go to the toilet on her own at daycare.
At home she will pee in her pants and does not go when I remind her at home.
We have no problem with #2, she always goes to toilet make a #2.

In the morning, I will take her to toilet before leave, we commute for one hour to her daycare. She will not tell me if she needs to go, when we get to daycare her pants are soaked with wee. She is not uncomfortable in her wet pants.
I have resorted to use ping pull-ups whilst Travelling.

When she gets to daycare, she changes out of pull-ups without any help.

How can I get her to become fully potty trained.

Just keep reinforcing that she needs to pee in the toilet.

She'll get it.

One question, when you take her to toilet prior to leaving, does she actually pee?

I wouldn't berate her or get upset with her when she's wet (when you get to daycare) but do express how disappointed you are (sad face, etc) that she is so diligent during the day, but not with you at home, or in transit.

Good luck!

It sometimes takes them time to realize that it's ok to bother mum for a potty stop when in the car.

You ladies will definitely get through this! Best of luck!

Thank you for your great advice.
Sometimes she does not pee much if at all before we leave in the morning.

But I will just continue, encouraging her!
