Will My Driving Instructor Be With Me During My Melbourne Driving Test?

by EzLicence Last updated

When it comes to learning to drive, finding the right driving instructor is important. The entire experience can be extremely daunting and nerve-racking which is why you not only need someone that is not only experienced and knowledgeable but also someone that takes the time to make you feel comfortable throughout your lesson. 

However, no matter how comfortable your Melbourne driving instructor makes you during your driving lessons when it comes time to take your driving test it’s not uncommon for the nerves to resurface. 

In a way to combat this, you may be able to have your driving instructor in the car with you. This is a great way to ensure that your driving test is as comfortable and stress-free as possible, allowing you to do your best!

Who Is Allowed In The Car During My Drive Test?

According to Vic Roads, your driving test will need to be conducted by a VicRoads licence testing officer. However, your qualified driving instructor (with a Driver Instructor Authority number) may sit in the front passenger seat with you throughout your test, provided that the vehicle the test is being conducted in has dual controls. 

It’s also important to note that sometimes a second VicRoads officer may be in the car for training purposes or to monitor your testing officer’s performance. The second officer will not affect your test. 

However, it is always best to check with your driving instructor prior to your driving test to see what is and isn’t permitted. 

Prior to your driving test, it’s important that you receive adequate driving lessons. To check out why you should choose an Ezlicence driving instructor to help you achieve your driving goals, keep reading:
