The Driving Companion
Government responsibilities in monitoring the licensing process
Government Accreditation Auditors regularly monitor the standard of training and assessment being applied by Motor Driving Instructors. These Officers may observe any VORT from within the vehicle.
They will identify themselves at the beginning of any VORT and will not intervene or influence any result stated by your instructor. These Officers will be looking at how your instructor conducts the VORT and will not take any part in your assessment.
Accreditation Auditors may request to look at your Learner's Permit and your Driving Companion.
Government Accreditation Auditors also further validate the driving skills of any person not subject to the Graduated Licence Scheme. This usually involves applicants from countries which do not have sufficiently robust licensing systems to ensure that drivers are safe and competent.
In these cases applicants, may after completing a practical driving test with an a VORT motor driving instructor, be identified to present for an additional assessment with the Government Auditor.
