This qualification provides participants with the skills and knowledge to teach others to drive a car, apply safe driving behaviours, maintain business records, follow occupational health and safety procedures and design and develop learning programs.

This will also equip participants with the skills and knowledge required to understand the principles of learning that apply to adults which in turn will help them discover the best methods of designing, constructing and delivering lesson plans in order to train others in driving a motor vehicle.

This qualification has been structured to align with applicable car driving licensing and regulatory requirements for each state or territory. Successful completion will require competency in units that relate to work defined as aligned at AQF Level 4.

Pathways

The driving instructor industry covers many variations of business’ from large corporations to small one person operations all competing for business within the ‘learn to drive’ marketplace.

Employment in the driver trainer industry is characterised by two types of trainers:-

  • A stable group of long term driver trainers who have made a career in this sector and regard themselves as professionals. N.B. this qualification is one pre-requisite for the DIA (Driver Instructors Authority) issued by the Taxi Service Commission (TSC) in Victoria. Professional Driving Instructors in Victoria must hold a DIA when teaching an unlicensed person to drive a motor car.
  • A group of people who provide training as a casual or part-time endeavour, to supplement their income or during a period of unemployment from their ‘normal’ job.
  • The further study pathways available to learners who undertake this qualification include:

TLI41316 Certificate IV in Transport and Logistics (Road Transport – Heavy Vehicle Driving Instruction) and TLI41416 Certificate IV in Transport and Logistics (Road Transport – Motorcycle Riding Instruction)

 

Delivery

The volume of learning for a certificate IV is 600 – 2400 hours (0.5 -2 years). As a component of this, program delivery is a minimum of 520 hours in this instance, comprising four elements. The difference between volume of learning requirements and this instance of program delivery is justified by consultation with industry representatives who feel that the timeframes allocated more than adequately reflect industry and client needs.

Learners may take up to 24 months from their enrolment date to complete the program however this will differ from individual to individual according to specific learning needs and prior experience. This will be determined at the pre-enrolment interview and an Individual Training Plan will be developed by the Career Practitioner.

Program Elements

  • 175 hours classroom based training workshops. These are delivered in 1 week blocks (5 days per week for 5 weeks). A timetable outlining when each unit will be delivered is provided to students at enrolment. This may be increased if the trainer/assessor feels that a participant requires further time for practice and consolidation and it may be decreased for individuals who are able to demonstrate that they have relevant existing skills, knowledge and experience.
  • Approximately 200 hours of unsupervised self-paced learning/ consolidation/studying/on road practice. This may be increased if the trainer/assessor feels that a participant requires further time for practice and consolidation and it may be decreased for individuals who are able to demonstrate that they have relevant existing skills, knowledge and experience.
  • 50 (approximately) hours assessment activity to provide students with the opportunity to demonstrate skills and knowledge across a range of environments and contexts relevant to the unit (this may be increased if the assessor feels that a participant requires further time to demonstrate competence and it may be decreased for individuals who are able to demonstrate that they have relevant existing skills, knowledge and experience).
  • 95 hours Advance Community College P3  and Explore Your Options programs
