Unit Of competency

Modification History

Release 1. This is the first release of this unit of competency in the TLI Transport and Logistics Training Package.

Application

This unit involves the skills and knowledge required to teach learner drivers from diverse backgrounds how to develop, monitor and maintain safe car driving strategies and behaviours. This unit applies to car driving instructors.

It includes recognising and dealing with behavioural barriers to learning, developing vehicle operation and control skills, and interpreting and applying regulatory requirements and road law expertise.

It also includes developing higher-order cognitive and technical skills such as hazard perception, correctly reading a driving environment and responding appropriately, exercising risk management strategies that contribute to safe car driving behaviours, and meeting community expectations.

Work is performed without supervision. Developing safe car driving behaviours in others involves the application of adult learning principles, instructional methods, training competence and experience, higher-order car driving expertise, navigation skills, road law expertise, routine procedures and regulatory requirements across a range of operational situations and a variety of driving contexts.

No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication.
