What IS a VORT Prep Test?
A ‘Prep Test’ is just your everyday practice test, designed to prepare and inform students about their strengths and weaknesses before taking an official test with an examiner.
Driving instructors should always be working for the best interests of their students, making them the safest, most competent drivers on our roads. However in Australia there is a stigma that driving is easy and failing an on road test is just not possible.
Too many people rush into tests thinking “this will be a breeze!” But when they fail, they think the examiner has done them wrong, or scammed them in some way.
For the last 4 years we have had lists of common faults and immediate fail items up for display on our website, yet many people have either not seen them, chosen to ignore them, or have still underestimated the expectations of a VORT test. We want this to change, which is why we are challenging students (either learners going for their P’s, or overseas licence conversion students) to take Bryan’s ‘Prep Test’ before they book their VORT. If they can successfully pass a ‘Prep Test’, they will be given a free VORT test.
Bryan does not disillusion any of his students that have taken one of these tests in the 4+ years he’s been a driving instructor. This test is harder than the VORT test, as students need to ensure that the examiner has no choice but to say ‘Yes’ they have demonstrated the correct sequences and behaviours. If the examiner can’t say ‘Yes’ it was demonstrated correctly, or if he’s even thinking ‘maybe it was done right’, then he will mark the student down as a fault. In these 4+ years that Bryan has been preparing students for their VORT tests, not a single person has managed to pass this ‘Prep Test’! So the question is, what does it take to pass this test?
The answer to that is simple… Don’t break a single road rule! There is no percentage you must attain to pass, just simply don’t break a road rule. (NOTE: He has had many students pass the VORT test even though they have failed this test)
However the purpose of this ‘Prep Test’ is not to fail students, but rather to show them their strengths and weaknesses. What are they doing well, what do they need to practice more of? It gives students a much clearer idea of what is expected of them and mentally prepares them for the test. Bryan also does not just sit next to you and give you directions. He may also talk to you, ask you questions to test your knowledge, or even try to trick you (while still keeping you in a controlled and safe environment).
You may be in a car that is quiet and a bit nerve racking, or the radio may be on creating a relaxed atmosphere. One thing for sure is that no two ‘Prep Tests’ are the same. They are tailored to discover each students’ driving abilities and weaknesses. This is also a learning opportunity for each student, so if any skills need to be trained during this session or in future lessons, they can be.
