Hi Cameron,

I just got my test today. My result is pass, thank you for a lesson. On the day you took me to 3 possible routes. They did not take me any 3 today but the route test officer took me is way easier than your route. All tricks and tips that you told me are helpful.

Thanks again for everythings you did. If you don’t mind I will recommend you to my friends but you may get a problem because they are not good in English.

A Review From Demi.

I RECENTLY GOT MY LICENCE!!!!, can’t thank Camber driving school enough! I reckon he’s one of the best instructors in the hills area! Unlike any other instructor I have come across, Cameron makes passing the test seem like a easy thing do – if you just stick to the rules! he exactly knows what he’s doing and knows the area and the roads back to front! He was patient and taught me exactly what I needed to know, previously I had some terrible experiences with instructors in the area but Cameron’s so easy going and believes in your ability to master all the rules in no time! what else do you need! Thanks Camber driving school! life is so much better and so much time saved thanks to my P’s but probably not possible this quickly without the help of this fantastic instructor!

A Review From Vijay

Thank you for giving the tips in those 2 lessons before the test, as it helped clear my driving test in the 1st attempt itself.

I would recommend Cameron on any given day, as he has loads of experience and corrects the driving patterns of individuals by giving useful tips which are very essential. Though, being an experienced driver after having driven across different countries, he made me realize a few basic things which are very crucial to pass the RTA test and everyone has to abide by that, to clear the DT seamlessly.

I will strongly recommend CAMBER classes and be relaxed and rest assured of clearing the DT with flying colours.

Regards

Vijay

NSW Fatality Trends – Roads busier, but safer.

Roads busier, but safer.

The number of road deaths per 100,000 population in NSW has dropped over the past four-and-a-half decades, from 28.9 in 1970 to 4.99 in 2017, with a low of 4.1 in 2014.

Continued government investment and key road safety interventions, such as the compulsory use of seatbelts and the introduction of random breath testing, have had a significant impact on reducing the fatality rate – at the same time as NSW roads have become much busier. In 2017, there were more than 6 million registered motor vehicles in NSW, up from about 4000 motor vehicles in 1910

Top 10 Most Misunderstood NSW Road Rules

Road Rules Awareness Week

Videos help clarify road 

Our playlist of 10 animations explains some of the most misunderstood road rules. You can also watch the videos separately, starting with Roundabouts.

Brush up on rules

Since 2013, Road Rules Awareness Week has given all road users the chance to improve their knowledge of the NSW road rules.

Transport for NSW is committed to improving safety on the state’s roads and bringing the road toll Towards Zero.

Each year we focus on the most misunderstood road rules and provide an opportunity for road users to have their questions answered. Our online video animations were developed for Road Rules Awareness Week to help all road users with the road rules.

Misunderstood rules

The Top 10 misunderstood road rules in NSW guide outlines the road rules most commonly misunderstood by road users.

top-10-misunderstood-road-rules     PDF  

The Top 10 guide provides simple answers to many road rule questions, including using roundabouts, when you can and can’t use high-beam and fog lights, and when it is permitted to make a U-turn. The guide is also available at Service NSW and RMS registries.

Road users can also visit the Roads and Maritime Services website to view the NSW Road Users’ Handbook.

Road Rules Awareness Week provides an annual opportunity for drivers to refresh their knowledge of road rules. It also allows pedestriansmotorcyclists, passengers and bicycle riders to better understand the rules and improve their safety on or near the road.

A Review

Its Francesca from Kellyville. I’d just like to thank you again for everything you have done for me to assist in getting my P’s.
Before I met Cameron, I had already gone through several driving instructors.
These PREVIOUS driving instructors where over priced, confusing, stressful and knew nothing about the test courses.
Then I met Cameron.
Cameron is calming, smart and knows how to teach in a way that works for everyone.
He taught all the routes used for the test, one of which you will be tested on to pass for your P’s.
Along with that, he also taught me all the little things you NEED to know, that you cant pass without.
Cameron even has a great driving package for the day of your test that people like myself, (whom don’t have a car) couldn’t live without.

After my first lesson, I was confident to go for the test, and I PASSED ON MY FIRST GO, with a score of 103/106.

I’d just like to thank you Cameron so much for all the support and everything you taught me, as well as sticking by my side until I was handed my P plates.
I wish there where more people like you, so everyone could all pass on our first go!
Thank you again,
Francesca from Kellyville.

NSW – Supervising A Learner Driver

While many learner drivers take lessons from professional driving instructors, many will also want additional driving practice and some guidance from a parent, relative or friend. This page provides information for people supervising learners.

Supervising driver requirements

To supervise a learner, you must

  • Hold a current full Australian driver licence – not a learner or provisional licence
  • Have a good understanding of the road rules
  • Be a competent driver
  • Be able to effectively communicate information and ideas clearly.

Blood alcohol limit

The blood alcohol content (BAC) limit for you while you are supervising a learner is under 0.05. It is also illegal to supervise under the influence of drugs.

Learner driver log book and digital log book apps

Learner drivers need to record their practical experience in a log book. They can choose to use either a paper log book, or a digital log book app.

As the supervising driver, you’ll need to mark off the learner’s progress against a range of key tasks listed in their log book. Both the book and app include instructions on how to do this.

 

Remember, you are a role model

You are both a role model and mentor for your learner driver. You should support and help them become a safe and skilled driver. You also need to be patient and calm.

It is a good idea to review your own driving habits by:

  • Reading the Road Users Handbook to familiarise yourself with current road rules
  • Making sure you comply at all times with traffic lights, signs and road markings
  • Leaving plenty of space between your vehicle and the vehicle in front
  • Looking well ahead and checking ‘blind spots’ and vision blockouts
  • Driving at a suitable speed for conditions
  • Responding appropriately to hazards
  • Being patient and courteous with other drivers
  • Reading the Learner Driver Log Book to understand the content and learning goals.

12 tips for better learner supervision

When you’re supervising your learner driver:

  1. If either you or the learner driver is tired, upset or stressed, reschedule the practice session to another time
  2. Try frequent, short practice sessions in the beginning
  3. Use the Learner Driver Log Book task key points as a guide to practice sessions
  4. Begin with the easiest tasks then, once your learner has mastered those, move on to more difficult tasks
  5. Discuss then demonstrate new tasks before asking your learner to attempt them
  6. Use ‘commentary driving’ – talk about what is happening inside and outside the vehicle
  7. Start the learner practising on quiet streets, preferably in daylight, before moving onto busier roads and more challenging conditions
  8. Allow the learner to proceed at their own pace – don’t force them to attempt tasks they’re not ready for
  9. Don’t criticise mistakes. Calmly explain and discuss what happened and allow the learner to try again
  10. Be positive and offer praise when the learner successfully completes a task
  11. Emphasise the importance of developing a sensitivity to speed. Learners need to understand that the faster a vehicle travels, the more difficult it is to respond to potential hazards. When involved in a crash, the faster a vehicle is travelling, the more devastating the outcome
  12. Avoid using the radio, mobile phone or talking to other passengers while your learner is practising.

Free workshops – helping learner drivers become safer drivers

Free workshops for parents and supervisors of learner drivers are conducted around NSW. The workshops offer practical advice on how to help learner drivers become safer drivers, and cover topics such as:

  • How to use the Learner Driver Log Book
  • Planning driving sessions
  • How to deal with difficulties that may arise during driving practice
  • The importance of giving your learner constructive feedback.

For information about workshops in your area, call us on 13 22 13.

NSW Variable Message Signs

Variable message signs

Variable message signs

Variable Message Signs are large electronic signs placed on the side of some roads.

They display messages to warn motorists of changes in normal traffic conditions on the road ahead, such as fog, crashes, road works, congestion and road closures.

These early warnings help provide a safe and efficient traffic flow.

NSW – Red Light Speed Cameras

Red light speed cameras

Red light cameras are used to photograph vehicles that go through a red light.

A penalty notice is then sent to the owner of the vehicle, who has the option to:

  • Pay the fine.
  • Advise Revenue NSW on a statutory declaration the name and address of the person driving at the time of the offence.
  • Advise Revenue NSW you want to have the case heard by a court.

If you are crossing the intersection as the light turns yellow (amber) and it is not safe to stop, do not panic. Continue driving through the intersection. The camera only takes a photograph if you cross over the stop line 0.3 seconds after the light has turned red.

Traffic already in the intersection or entering on a yellow (amber) light will not activate the red light camera.

Red light speed cameras use digital technology that is capable of detecting both red-light and speeding offences.
