Learning to Drive a Truck - Learner Driving Lessons

Course Summary

Are you looking for affordable driver training in a heavy vehicle?  Are you looking to give a gift certificate of competent driver instruction as a present to a loved one?  Giving the gift of having an experienced driving instructor pass on their years of driving proficiency to your loved one can be a life-changing experience and could even be a life-saving experience.

Our team of qualified and licenced driver trainers are all;

  • Registered with the Department of Main Roads & Transport (TMR) as heavy vehicle driving instructors (LR, MR, HR, HC, MC),
  • Working with Children (Blue Card) accredited,
  • Qualified Certificate IV in driving instruction

 

Our instruction and assessment is designed to evaluate the learner’s ability to drive safely and correctly in different driving situations which may include a variety of speed zones and conditions. The instruction and assessment require the learner to demonstrate competence against the relevant standards and performance criteria. We collect theory and practical evidence on the learner’s knowledge and driving skills and make judgements about whether competency has been achieved or whether further training is required.

This instruction aims to educate and ensure participants demonstrate a level of skill and proficiency that will keep them safe. Learners need to demonstrate the following to be considered a safe and competent driver:

✓ Knowledge of the road rules and how to apply them.

✓ Sound observation and judgment skills

✓ The right attitude and approach to their driving by avoiding risk-taking behaviours.

✓ Hazard recognition and risk avoidance skills.

✓ An ability to make good decisions quickly.

✓ Understanding of their driving behaviours and how they may affect other road users.

✓ Common sense and courtesy when sharing the road with other road users.

We complete the driving instruction in your vehicle or the learner’s vehicle, and our price per hour of $80.00 plus GST ($88.00) reflects this. We can also instruct in the use of non-synchromesh gearboxes as well as fully automated gearboxes.

In accompaniment to this, OCD Training, Assessing & Consultancy also offer companion awareness courses for people moving into the transport and logistics industry.  We offer these here and are invaluable pathways for novice and experienced transport operators.  As well as this, drivers can also complete the accredited on-line TLIF005 – Apply a fatigue risk management system – driver course here or the accredited on-line TLIF0006 – Administer a fatigue risk management system – NEW – Scheduler Course here.  These courses are run and completed by our proud partners at KRTS Training (RTO 90252).
