Competency Based Training and Assessment

Competency Based Assessment (CBA)

is a process that enables the learner to provide evidence of progressively achieving skills specified by the Roads and Maritime Services (NSW) during the training process, and then to undertake a Final Competency Assessment on the open road using a Roads and Maritime Services prescribed test route.

Successful completion of this Unit of Competency is based on the assessment of your demonstrated competence when driving plus extra assessments to fully cover the criteria where the unit requirements exceed those of the Licencing Authority.

The licencing examination at the completion of the training in this Unit of Competency will be undertaken as a Final Competency Assessment (FCA) conducted by our Roads and Maritime Services assessor, or a Roads and Maritime Services auditor.
Your results will be reported as Competent, or Not Yet Competent, and you will be licenced accordingly.

Course Dates

Course can be booked in at the completion of your Knowledge Test. Waiting time is normally 5-10 days depending upon scheduling
