Advanced Driving Assessment
Have you applied for an exemption to recognise your experience (e.g. international driving experience) to get your Passenger (P), Vehicle recovery (V), Driving Instructor (I) or Testing Officer (O) Endorsement; or to act as a supervisor for Learner / Restricted drivers? Then you’ll need to do an Advanced Driving Assessment. This is for you if you wish to apply for a higher class of licence or endorsement, but have held your full class 1 New Zealand driver licence for less than 2 years.
The assessment covers all aspects of driving including; scanning techniques, hazard perception, use of mirrors, the 2 (or 4) second rule, speed, steering, slowing, stopping, lane use, road positioning, communication and the understanding of road rules and signs. In our experience we have found that this assessment is very difficult for students, and so it is our recommendation that you do, at minimum, a 1 hour coaching session before the assessment.
