Home' Open Road Sydney North and North West : OR0716 Contents WHAT COULD POSSIBLY go wrong when
two rugby league legends, a couple
of clued-up learner drivers and an NRMA
Safer Driving School instructor get thrown
into a mock driving test scenario?
Nothing and everything, depending on
whom you ask. To show how the right
training can better educate young learner
drivers, the NRMA challenged former
Sydney Roosters captain Anthony
Minichiello and former Wests Tigers player
John Skandalis to sit a mock provisional
driving test. There’s just one catch: their
assessors don’t even hold a full licence.
Year 11 students Lani Johnson and
William Graf, from Westfields Sports High
School in Fairfield, eagerly put their hands
up to test the rugby league stars (each with
around 20 years driving experience).
NRMA Safer Driving School instructor Noor
Shareezi wrote the mock test, which
included a rigorous examination of how
the drivers used caution, checked over
their shoulders, indicated, and responded
to changes in their environment while
driving – all points of examination that are
in the Roads and Maritime Services’ (RMS)
official driving test.
Despite their bravado, both failed their
assessments. If they were going for a
provisional licence, they would have to wait
another seven days before trying again.
The driving assessment was part of
the ‘Go West’ campaign. Mr Minichiello
expressed surprise at failing, but was
impressed with the knowledge of the
students, who each had formal lessons
with NRMA Safer Driving School.
“I got some really good feedback from
the instructors... I think it makes the young
kids think about their driving a lot more
than we did when we were growing up,”
says Mr Minichiello.
NRMA Director David Bentham says an
NRMA survey of more than 600 parents
and supervisor drivers found only three
per cent would have passed the RMS
Driver Knowledge Test. “ Learner drivers
need to be taught the right habits from the
start of their driving life, and supervisors
– including mums and dads – have an
important role to play,” says Mr Bentham.
STUDENT DRIVERS TEST FOOTY STARS
