A Class Driving School offer VORT Testing in Kadina.

VORT, Vehicle On Road Testing, will test your skills and knowledge as a safe and competent driver.  Your VORT test will take approximately 45 minutes.

A person who has never driven a vehicle is recommended to take driving lessons, the reason is it will teach you every aspect of driving and you will be prepared before taking your driving test.

The VORT, Vehicle On-Road Test, is a single test, you will either pass or fail. Generally people wanting to take the VORT option are Overseas License holders needing to transfer their overseas license, or people who are very confident and learner drivers who may of completed the required hours needed. The choice is yours and only you can make it. The Examiner who will be testing must not have had any training with you and is not permitted to test you if they have. Prior to undertaking a VORT it is recommend to have Driving Lessons with a VORT Trainer and prepare yourself so that you have every chance of passing the first time.

You can use your own vehicle or the Instructor vehicle when you are ready for your test. Generally people will use their own vehicle mainly because they are use to driving their own vehicle and feel comfortable. That is another good thing about A Class Driving School, you can use your own vehicle.

To pass a VORT you must demonstrate 5 slow speed manoeuvres and in combination with the general drive score a pass mark of 90% or more and not breach any road law during the drive.

If you are unsuccessful with your VORT I will debrief you on the reason why.  A copy of the test marking sheet will be given to you detailing your performance.

Changes to Temporary Permits 1st July 2020

From the 1st July 2020 temporary permit holders who fail a VORT during the 3 month period will automatically be placed on a Learners Permit and will be prohibited driving on their own.

It is highly recommend when you obtain your temporary permit to have driving lessons.  Preparation for your test is important.  By having driving lessons, you will put your mind at ease.

The reason of 3 months on a temporary permit is to give you the best chance of passing the test the first time and not failing.
