Safe One Basic Driver Training Course
Due to individual concerns of the Driver Training Unit (DTU), a consensus has been reached that, as volunteer instructors, the DTU is unwilling to risk instructors’ health by being in close proximity to unvaccinated students in the training room or in vehicles. The DTU is therefore unable to offer training to anyone who has not been double vaccinated.
Priority will be given to nominees from the cancelled September 2021 course first, then from the cancelled October 2021 course.
The course is in three parts:
Vehicle Inspection – The vehicle inspection ensures you and your vehicle are ready to undertake the course. These inspections are undertaken three weeks before the course on 6 April 2022. Please nominate separately on the website for this part of the course.
Pre-Night – The Pre-night is held in Canberra on the Wednesday evening a fortnight before the training weekend, on 27 April 2022, commencing at 19:00 (7pm). Details of the venue will be forwarded to participants via email as this may be subject to change. Attendance at this theory session is mandatory prior to attending the driving component.
