Before You Drive

As a student it is your responsibility to meet the following requirements before you drive with one of Leapfrog’s Driver Trainers, and for any student under 18 years of age, the responsibility will be extended to include the parent/guardian. This is to protect you when you are driving and ensure that you meet our New South Wales State Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) regulations and recommendations:

  • You MUST have your Learner’s Driver Licence with you;
  • You MUST have a Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) of Zero (0) – If you have had a drink it MUST not be less than 24 hours before your driving lesson;
  • You MUST NOT have taken any prohibited drugs including prescription drugs that could affect your ability to drive safely. If you are not sure of the effects of any drugs you are taking, please consult with your General Practitioner (GP) before driving under the influence of any drugs;
  • You MUST wear appropriate attire that meets smart casual standards;
  • You MUST wear closed fitting shoes as sandals and thongs can cause you to slip off the pedals and place you and your trainer in a dangerous position on the road;
  • You MUST wear your prescription spectacles if you are required to do so when you drive. If you are not sure please consult with your optometrist before you drive;
  • Our trainers must comply with the June 2010 Code of Best Practice for the NSW Driver Trainers Association that you can view clicking on this link http://ku-ring-gai.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/Code-of-Best-Practice-for-the-NSW-Driver-Trainers-Association.pdf or through our website resources page. We would expect our students to also adhere to these rules especially with regards to punctuality and courtesy.

Please be aware should you not be able to meet any of the requirements listed above:

YOU WOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO TAKE YOUR LESSON AND IT WOULD BE CONSIDERED A CANCELLATION WITHOUT NOTICE. YOU WILL BE CHARGED FOR THE LESSON AND NO REFUND WOULD BE GIVEN.

A SAFE DRIVING EXPERIENCE IS OUR GOAL AND TO ACHIEVE THIS WE EXPECT OUR STUDENTS TO ADHERE TO THE ABOVE-MENTIONED REQUIREMENTS WITHOUT EXCEPTION AT ALL TIMES.

ALL OUR VEHICLES HAVE DUAL CONTROL FOR YOUR SAFETY DURING YOUR LEARNING EXPERIENCE. HOWEVER, YOUR DRIVER TRAINER WOULD ONLY INTERVENE WHEN A DANGEROUS SITUATION ARISES.

ALL OUR VEHICLES ARE FULLY INSURED BUT PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL INSURERS REQUIRE STUDENTS TO BE LIABLE FOR THE EXCESS OF $1000, SHOULD THEY BE AT FAULT, IN THE UNLIKELY EVENT OF AN ACCIDENT OCCURRING. PARENTS/GUARDIANS OF STUDENTS UNDER 18 YEARS OF AGE WILL BE HELD LIABLE ON THEIR BEHALF.

PLEASE READ OUR TERMS & CONDITIONS OF USE BEFORE JOINING ONE OF OUR DRIVER TRAINERS ON OUR SAFE LEARNER DRIVING EXPERIENCE.
