During the theoretical and practical session of the course, you will work with a qualified driving assessor with over 17 years’ experience with the Department of Transport (DOT). You will be taught how to use the Practical Driver Assessment form (PDA) to assess to a standard, to ensure your clients are ready for their own driving assessment. In addition in learning what is necessary to become a driving instructor, Miro Training Centre go the extra mile, and teaching you the foundations of running a successful driving school business, such as training in understanding how people learn, insider tips on working in the industry, insurance costs, dual control factors and OH & S requirements. During the course there will be homework to complete, so be ready to put in extra hours at home.
Courses are held on a regular basis throughout the year, with a new course starting on average every 3 weeks. This certificate is a competency based course and therefore the course duration is student based learning and is run until competency is achieved. The course has 4 theory days interspersed with 7 practical days followed by a practical assessment day. With prior arrangement courses can be scheduled out of normal working hours, but this will generally be for groups of three or more people, and higher fees may apply.
Competency is assessed throughout the course through your facilitator. At the end of these 2 weeks, they will decide with you whether you are ready to sit the practical assessment.
The practical assessment involves teaching someone a selected uver, a narrative drive where you will talk your assessor through how you drive, followed by an assessment of your personal driving course. The approximate time for this is around 2.5 hours.
At Miro we encourage you to complete your assessments within 2 weeks of finishing the intensive course work, however, we are here to help you on your way. If you are struggling, please call us and we will do everything possible to help you on your way.
