Course Content

Each qualification consists of units of competency that reflect the skills and knowledge needed to become a driving instructor. Several of these units are common to both Car Instructor and Heavy Vehicle Driving Instructor as shown in the chart below. Motor Driving Instructors who have already completed one of these qualifications need only to complete the remaining specialisation units to obtain a second qualification. 


Courses are delivered at our Wingfield Training Facility, 57 Wingfield Road, WINGFIELD
Courses are structured on a flexible basis to meet the needs of students. Delivery includes classroom theory and in-vehicle practical training and assessment. Units are clustered to provide a more holistic delivery and assessment program.
Training is a mix of theory and practical in vehicle training. 
The heavy vehicle instructor course is scheduled over approximately six months with additional hours per week of home study required to complete assessments or practice driving tasks.
Prospective students may wish to consider completing the qualification certificate IV in Training and Assessment, TAE 40116, at another RTO before commencing the Driving Instruction course. This will reduce the time spent, and costs, at Courtesy and gives students the 2 additional assessor units that are needed to access training for CBT&A currently offered by the Department for Planning Transport and Infrastructure.
Please speak to a staff member if you would like further information on this.
