We remain committed to providing the highest quality driver training in Townsville during the current Covid-19 situation, we have however made some changes to how we operate and how we conduct our driving lessons to ensure the health and safety of our students and trainers.

You do not currently have to be COVID vaccinated to undertake driving lessons. 

We have various safety measures in place to help stop the spread of COVID-19 and to protect our students and staff, including: 

  • QR code sign-ins for contact tracing at our office and in our vehicles;
  • Vehicles are thoroughly cleaned and sanitised regularly;
  • Our trainers have or are in the process of receiving their Covid-19 vaccinations;
  • Face masks are mandatory during lessons.

Cancelling or Rescheduling Due to Illness

If you have any Covid-19 symptoms, please get tested and stay home. We require 48 hours' notice to cancel or reschedule any bookings, otherwise you may be charged a cancellation fee. 

Department of Transport and Main Roads - Health and Safety Requirements for Driving Tests 

Face masks must be worn when completing a driving test across Queensland in line with Queensland Health advice.

When you take your practical driving test, follow these health and safety guidelines:

  • Clean hands regularly with liquid soap and water or alcohol-based hand sanitiser, including after pre-test vehicle cleaning.
  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue or bent elbow when coughing or sneezing. Dispose of any used tissues immediately in the bin and clean hands with liquid soap and water or alcohol hand sanitiser.
  • Avoid touching your mouth, face and nose. Do not shake hands.
  • Stay home if you are sick. Seek medical advice about returning to work after illness.
  • Keep at least 1.5m away from others as much as you can.

We are committed to keeping everyone safe during this time and we remain up to date with Covid-19 changes and follow the latest advice and guidelines provided by the Queensland Government.
