12DRI

NCEA Level 2 Driving

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr K. Wilson


The course consists of a number of unit standards that students will work through in the classroom situation. On a regular rotation each student will participate in up to five practical driving lessons with a qualified driving instructor. On occasions there may be group driving skill events. As part of the course students will have the opportunity to participate in the RYDA program (a free practical day) during Term 2.

It is recommended that every student either already has or is willing to sit their learner's licence in order to take advantage of all opportunities that this course offers.

A student will be withdrawn from a standard if the teacher is not confident that the achievement of the standard is within the reach of the student or there is no evidence of the student attempting the assessment.

Recommended Prior Learning

It would be an advantage, but not necessarily a requirement, to have already obtained your Learners drivers licence prior to starting the course. Alternatively, you will use some of this time in class to complete some practice tests in term one so you can sit the Licence test in term one, or when you are eligible to do so. 

Contributions and Equipment/Stationery

Students need to be able to take practical driving lessons during class time. The use of a suitable vehicle and fees are covered by the course. The student will need to cover their own licence fees (Learners/Restricted and Full).
