Vort & Overseas

The VORT (Vehicle on Road Test) will test your skills and knowledge as a safe and competent driver. Your VORT test will take approximately 45 minutes and you will be required to demonstrate 5 low speed manoeuvres, (move off up a hill, angle park, U-turn, 3-point turn and reverse parallel park) as well as general drive. The general drive component of your VORT will test your driving skills e.g. changing lanes, turning on and from busy roads, turning at traffic lights, negotiating roundabouts, stop and give-way signs, your interaction with other road users and the system of car control.
To pass a VORT you must demonstrate 5 slow speed manoeuvres and in combination with the general drive score a pass mark of 90% or more and not breach any road laws during the test. Any breach of road laws will result in an immediate fail and the VORT will be terminated.
If you are unsuccessful with your VORT I will provide feedback on your result. A copy of the test marking sheet will be given to you detailing your performance.
