Our Parent Learner Driver Information session is a non-accredited program targeted at supervising drivers and novice learner drivers.

This course is not designed to replace the professional instruction of a Qualified Car Driving Instructor but rather provide supervising drivers and learner drivers with some practical information about the pathway from L’s to P’s that will assist in providing a safe learning environment for everybody in the vehicle combined with knwoledge of the requirements involved in the Victorian (Vicroads) Drive Assessment.

Our trainers for this program are all Qualified Driving Instructors who own and operate Driving Schools in Melbourne for over 15 years. The information presented in this program has been tried and tested and been taught to Driving Instructors entering the Driver Training Industry.

During the 2 hour session our participants will learn life saving information that is beneficial to any parent or supervising driver who may be teaching a novice learner to drive safely on our roads.

NOTE: Anybody engaged in professional or paid Car Driving Instruction must hold the TLI41210 Certificate IV in Transport and Logistics (Road Transport – Car Driving Instruction) qualification together with a current and valid Driving Instructors Authority.

Teaching Techniques – This topic covers areas such as communication skills (how instruction should be given) and how parents can graduate the learning experience with their children to avoid high stress situations. We will highlight a couple of key areas that parents should concentrate on to help develop safe drivers for life!
