Learn To Be A Driving Instructor: Necessary Qualifications

Learning to be a driving instructor with Intelligent Training Solutions is your best option, not only because we are one of the few providers to deliver the TLI41218 Certificate IV course in its entirety, but we are known for going above and beyond the qualification requirements to ensure you start your new career at the top of the industry. 

Regardless of what state you happen to live in, the TLI41218 Certificate IV in Transport & Logistics (Road Transport – Car Driving Instruction) course is one, if not the first, requirement when becoming a driving instructor in Australia. This qualification is the prerequisite for the Driver Instructors accreditation and or licence in Victoria, the ACT, and South Australia.  Additionally, we are the only provider for TLISS00162 Driving Instructor Skill Set in the ACT and South Australia.  You need TLI41218 and TLISS00162 to become an ADI in the ACT.  You require TLI41218 and TLISS00162 to become a CBTA or VORT assessor in South Australia.  Important note for ACT and SA.  I.T.S only enrols I.T.S TLI41218 students into TLISS0162.  Do not make the mistake of becoming stranded and not being able to move into the industry with half the required qualification.  I.T.S is the only R.T.O that can deliver both qualifications.   

Our course has been designed and developed to provide you with the information, training and skills you will require to become a qualified, professional driving instructor for both passenger and heavy vehicles, turning you into a valuable asset to any driving school or driver training business.

Driving Instructor Training: How Long It Takes

Completing the TLI41218 Certificate IV consists of twelve units of study, ranging from five hours to 60 hours each. The driving instructor course is a 435 hour nationally accredited course, so full-time study with Intelligent Training Solutions will take seven and a half weeks. Participants who cannot join a full-time course have the option of joining our blended delivery and/ or part-time courses. These courses are flexible in delivery, with students generally requiring between 16 and 24 weeks.

The Cost Of Driving Instructor Courses

The course fees for driving instructor training courses are dependent on whether you are eligible for government funding. Depending on the state you live in, a full-time, fee for service (non-government-funded) course with Intelligent Training Solutions will cost $5,528.00 for Car and $7,340.28 for Heavy Vehicle. 

Currently, government funding is only available to those living in Victoria through AITAC (RTO: 3591) and will cost $3,314.70 for Car and 3,829.50 for Heavy Vehicle.

Payment options and 24-month interest-free payment plans are available to all students. In addition, discounts are available for those who are interested in dual qualifications.

Choose Intelligent Training Solutions

After completing the TLI41218 Certificate IV course, the next step in your journey requires you to meet your States regulator obligations for holding a driving instruction accreditation or licence. For most states, this will be as easy as submitting an application to your relevant driving instructor government sector, together with a copy of your TLI41218 Certificate. However, some regulators, such as DIT in South Australia, will, in addition to the course, require you to pass a regulator knowledge and driving assessment before issuing you with a driving instruction licence.  The ACT will require you to complete TLISS00162 and attend an Access Canberra information session. 

As part of our service to you, Intelligent Training Solutions is more than happy to help you with the entire process of studying, obtaining your qualification, submitting your application and finding employment.
