The Driving Companion
Government responsibilities in monitoring the licensing process
Government Authorised Persons regularly monitor the standard of training and assessment being applied by Authorised Examiners. An Authorised Person may observe any VORT from within the vehicle.
The Authorised Person will identify themselves at the beginning of any VORT and will not intervene or influence any result stated by your Authorised Examiner. The Authorised Person will be looking at how your Authorised Examiner conducts the VORT and will not take any part of your test.
An Authorised Person may request to look at your Learner's Permit and your Driving Companion.
Government Authorised Persons may 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 VORT with an Authorised Examiner, be identified to present for an additional assessment with a Government Authorised Person.
