NGDT Training and Assessment

Contact Mitch at NGDT on 0419250045 to book your Training and final assessment.

Please have your Logbook and Driver Licence with you when you call, as there are details within the Logbook and Licence which we require when processing your booking. These details will be checked by your Assessor against the RMS database to confirm your eligibility (eyesight test recorded, correct Logbook and licence class approved) to undertake the course. NOTE this check does not allow us to see your driver history.  After successfully completing the licence course you will be issued with a Certificate of Competence by your Instructor/Assessor. Take this Certificate of Competence to your local RMS Motor Registry and exchange it for your upgraded Licence. ($24 RMS fee)
