Victorian, Learner Drivers, Stages and getting 120 hours.

Vic-roads-logo I was on a course recently learning about how to supervise Learner Drivers.  Victorian Learner Drivers need 120 hours of supervised driving before they can graduate onto a Provisional Driver License.  Vicroads break the “learning to drive” into four stages:

Stage 1 – Controlling the car
Stage 2 – Driving on quiet low speed roads
Stage 3 – Complex driving situations
Stage 4 – Rehearsing solo driving

What they don’t widely publish is the breakdown of hours for each of the  stages.  But here they are:
Stage 1 – 0 to 20 hours
Stage 2 – 20 to 40 hours
Stage 3 – 40 to 75 hours
Stage 4 – 75 to 120 hours
