I am continually shocked  by parents and learners who ring after failing the GLS victorian drivers test for a second or 3rd time and  after undertaking a coaching session, realize they have driven by listening and obeying to there old style instructor and can not actually drive solo.
parents are amazed that they drive so differently, when not being told what to do?
i am also really impressed when both change the dynamics and see the complete change in ability to analyze. Real Driving

 
18/7/2011

  1. Vic Roads have allowed cross road law change to enter test criteria (see downloads tab)
  2. Parents need to take a serious approach to there children and driving. it kills and seriously injures p plates at a major rate.
  3. Start your professional training early

 
26/7/2011

Vic roads, Geelong office, have made some very important changes to the drive test

  1. Instructions will only be given once.
    1. you may ask them to confirm or repeat instructions
  2. Road works will be highlighted verbally
first is a no Brainer.  no one gets info repeated unless you ask.

second seems to contradict road safety , will not happen in real life. Waiting for Vic Roads to state justifications.

"What I hear I forget, what I see I remember, what I do I understand." That is, the Chinese sentence above literally translates to "Not hearing is not as good as hearing, hearing is not as good as seeing, seeing is not as good as mentally knowing, mentally knowing is not as good as acting; true learning continues up to the point that action comes forth (or, only when a thing produces action can it be said to have been truly learned)."
Confucius should have been a Master Driver Trainer !

November training of Master Driver Trainers was an awesome experience. providing the education process for novice drivers to learn and instigate safe actions even under pressure and distractions is why we do it. Vision zero and stayin alive
