Essential Information

Schedule of Events and Registration

When creating an account and entering, please ensure it is the Learner Driver’s details being used.

Do not enter under the name of the supervisor.

Five groups of 40 learners (and their supervisor) will each have an hour for their experience.

Starting with a short classroom style briefing, police will advise of the “Do” and “Do Nots” of Emergency Vehicle interactions, and provide information for the on-track proceedings.

Learners will then take their own vehicles, with their supervisors alongside and head on track. Police will activate lights and sirens, simulating that the Learner needs to move out of the way as the Emergency Vehicle is enroute to a job.

From here, police will filter through the cars and pull every driver over intermittently, showing them safe procedures, and what to expect when being pulled over.

There are 5 groups. Group 1 begins at 5pm and they run hourly until Group 5 begins at 9pm.

Registration opens 1 hour prior to your session.

You must hold a Learner or higher driver’s license to participate.
