Course

The course educates new drivers of their obligations on road and their safe driving behaviours, which protect vulnerable road users including cyclists, motorcyclists, and pedestrians. The course will discuss risks and risk management methods to keep all road users safe.

The course provides learner drivers with 10 hours towards the required driving hours to obtain an ACT provisional driver licence. However, the course is not compulsory to obtain a provisional driver licence.

 

How it works and eligibility

Participants of the course must have held a learner license for a minimum of 3 months and have a minimum of 30 hours driving experience recorded in their log book.

The course consists of two modules.

 

Module one: (Approximately 1 hour)

Module one is a self-directed learning exercise that must be completed prior to attending module two. Fifth Gear Motoring will issue course participants with a workbook to complete. Fifth Gear Motoring staff are available to assist course participants to complete the workbook.

Module two: (Approximately 2 hours)

Module two is an in-class, face to face exercise where participants are encouraged to discuss vulnerable road users and ways in which all road users can use the road safely together.

This module will be held in the Fifth Gear Motoring training room in Fyshwick. It will be presented by the same Fifth Gear Motoring instructors who provide learner driver lessons. 

The discussion will focus on safely sharing the road with cyclists, motorcyclists and pedestrians. Participants will develop the driving skills, foresight and awareness to equip them to be safe, responsible drivers. 

Cost

Cost per student, which includes both modules one and two, is $65.
