Course requirements and training

During this course it is a requirement as listed by Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads that you can complete the theoretical exam to 100% correct, our trainers will assist you in this exam but cannot give you any of the answers. You are required to complete all the practical components as required by TMR and must be able to master these skills to a level verified by the trainer.

If our trainer believes you are unable to meet these standards you have the following options: Pay an additional fee for 1 on 1 training for the trainer to complete the course with you at your pace. This fee is dependent on the level of completion from your first day
