Your supervising driver may be anyone who holds an Australian unrestricted Class C driver's licence or higher. Your supervising driver may be a family member or friend, or a licensed driving instructor.
It may be beneficial for you to obtain the services of a professional driving instructor at various stages during the learning process. A person who receives money or any other reward for teaching you to drive must hold a driving instructor's licence and must display their driving instructor's licence in the cabin of the vehicle while teaching you to drive.
While only one person will supervise you as you drive there is no problem with different practice sessions being conducted by different supervising drivers.
When is an instructor licence required? The legislation requires any person who teaches another person to drive for money or reward to hold an Instructor’s licence.
