Learners permit support small group program

Getting a learners Permit is a big step which requires a lot of learning prior to sitting the Learners test. Despite the Vic roads: ‘Road to solo driving handbook’ being a comprehensive compilation of all the information you need to know to pass this test, the big question is how do you learn all the information on your own? The good news is you don’t have to.

This small group program provides participants support to study the driving handbook and prepare for your Victorian learner’s permit test. All material is directly from the handbook and is not changed in any way. This means the participants are learning the correct information, but it is presented in a way that supports different learning styles.

Visuals are provided to help the participants learn and remember information from the handbook.

  • Road signs and rules are displayed on the wall for easy reference and learning.
  • Google maps are explored to compare the graphics in the handbook to real life road situations.
  • Videos from VicRoads YouTube channel are played to reinforce concepts from the handbook.

Activities are utilised during the program to reinforce learning. Examples include:

  • timing cars on the side of the road to compare 2 – 4 second gaps and how much gap distance is needed while driving.
  • sitting in the driver’s seat of a car to explore the blind spot. Other participants stand around the car. A lot of participants are amazed at how large the blind spot is.
  • manipulating toys cars on road maps to explore give way rules and other concepts.

Time is allocated for practice tests towards the end of the term to practice and further prepare for the Learner’s Permit Test. This is done both as a group and individually, with support available to become proficient at answering the questions correctly.

Participants are welcome to book in further individual sessions as needed at our individual session rate.
