(CBT&A) Competency Based Training & Assessment
This option is the recommended choice when learning to drive and just obtaining you license for the first time.
CHOOSING THE LOGBOOK HAS THE FOLLOWING ADVANTAGES
- You are assessed as each task is completed.
- The training is designed to cover all aspects of good driving
- The training allows you to learn at your own pace without a test deadline.
- There is no pass or fail when each task is assessed. Should you be unsuccessful in any assessment of the task, our driving instructor can re-train you and then re-assess your performance again in that task with the same or a later driving lesson.
- Entries by your driving instructor go towards your required 75 hours of driving experience
Successful performance in all 30 tasks will result in the training course being completed and a certificate of competency issued. The certificate of competency will allow you to obtain your provisional license provided you have completed the 75 hours of supervised driving as well as having obtained on your L’s for a minimum of 12 months.
You may change instructor at any time during the logbook course, although the new driving instructor will be required to check that you can perform all the tasks signed off by your previous instructor. This process is called Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL).
(VORT) Vehicle On Road Test
The Vehicle on Road Test will test your skills and knowledge as a safe and competent driver. Your test will take approximately 50 minutes and you will be required to demonstrate 5 slow speed manoeuvres, (move off up a hill, angle park, U-turn, 3-point turn and reverse parallel park) as well as general drive. The general drive component will consist of changing lanes, turning on and off a busy road, turning at traffic lights, negotiating roundabouts as well as the system of car control.
To pass a VORT test you must receive a pass mark of 90% or more and not breach any road laws during the drive. Any road law breach will result in an immediate fail and termination of the test.
You are not permitted to undertake a practical test with any Authorized Examiner who has contributed in any part of your training. When booking a VORT test, an Authorized Examiner must allow at least 2 full clear days notice before commencement of the test date.
