At Core Driving School, we believe that the way to make driving become second nature is through practical knowledge. Practical knowledge is the knowledge that is acquired by day-to-day hands-on experiences. In other words, practical knowledge is gained through doing things; it is very much based on real-life endeavors and tasks. The way to learn to drive is by driving, not just watching. A combination vehicle is a tractor unit with one or more attached trailers. A long combination vehicle is a tractor that has two or three trailers instead of one. We value our students, their safety, and their training. Heavy vehicle and combination vehicle driving is no easy task, and may not be suited to some individuals. We understand that heavy vehicles can cause some serious damage on the road, that’s why we prioritize high safety standards to reduce workplace injuries and ensure public safety above all else when training and assessing.

It is our objective at Core Driving School to ensure that all pupils have the necessary skills needed to pass their test with confidence. We provide a variety of choices for those who want to complete a course at our GDL Core Driving School. You will be able to select a convenient site no matter where you reside, since we have offices all over Sydney, including Newcastle and Wollongong. We also run courses seven days a week, so you’ll be able to book a time and date for your training session.

Drivers are evaluated under various criteria in relation to the safe operation of heavy vehicles by AQF and HVCBA. The assessment is then carried out under a number of circumstances. To be able to train and assess drivers under HVCBA, the assessor must be certified by Transport NSW and satisfy AQF standards. We deal with all of this for you, so there’s less to think about on your end.
