Senior Drivers Assessment Refresher Lesson

Maintain your driving independence

Our senior driver training provides you with the right skills and confidence to keep you safe on the road. We’re qualified to offer expert lessons as refreshers and assessments – to prepare you for any upcoming driving tests as part of the current NSW licensing system.

What is a driving assessment?

A practical driving test carried out by a professional driving instructor who holds a Senior Assessor Qualification, which all NRMA instructors have. This qualification is accredited by TfNSW and means our instructors are able to conduct Senior Driving Assessments for licenced drivers 85 years and over. Assessments are generally conducted starting at your home and on roads you drive every day in your local area.

What is a refresher lesson?

A refresher driving lesson can help to update you on the latest road rules, provide feedback on areas for improvement, and increase your knowledge of 'Fail items' for undertaking an driving test at Service NSW. You can take this before completing the Senior Driving Assessment.

If you’re a NSW and ACT driver 75 years and older you’re required to have an annual medical examination to retain your licence. If 85 years and older, you must decide whether to keep your unrestricted licence or switch it to a modified licence.

An unrestricted licence requires you to complete a practical driving test or assessment every two years.

On renewal, senior drivers can choose a modified licence with certain conditions – pending negotiations with the TfNSW, i.e. a 'home to town' driving condition could be put in place. Modified licence holders aren’t required to undertake driving tests or assessments.
