Assessable tasks

Stage 1 assessable tasks

The table below shows the typical assessable tasks for stage 1. Some tasks may be assessed more than once and may be assessed at intersection types that differ from those shown here. It is also possible that some tasks may be replaced by others if they cannot be undertaken on a particular test route. For example, all routes are designed to include a reverse parallel park, but this task may be replaced by a three-point turn if a safe location for a reverse park is not available when required in the test route.

Traffic movement Task
Fig. 1 Figure 1 Right turn giving way to intersecting traffic (one lane each way), may be at a ‘T’ or cross-intersection.
Fig. 2 Figure 2 Left turn giving way to intersecting traffic (one lane each way), may be at a ‘T’ or cross-intersection.
Fig. 3 Figure 3 Lane change right.
Fig. 4 Figure 4 Lane change left.
Fig. 5 Figure 5 Reverse parallel park.
Fig. 6 Figure 6 Three-point turn (substitute task).

Stage 2 assessable tasks

The purpose of stage 2 is to assess the applicant’s driving ability in busier day-to-day traffic environments. Stage 2 of the test route therefore uses roads with medium to heavy traffic flows.

Typical stage 2 assessable tasks and their location requirements are shown in the table below. Some tasks may be assessed more than once and may be assessed at intersection types that differ from those shown here. It is also possible that some tasks may be replaced by others if they cannot be undertaken on a particular test route.

Fig. 8 Figure 8 Right turn giving way to intersecting traffic (two lanes each way), may be at a ‘T’ or cross-intersection.
Fig. 9 Figure 9 Right turn giving way to one lane of oncoming traffic, may be at a ‘T’ or cross-intersection.
Fig. 10 Figure 10 Right turn giving way to two lanes of oncoming traffic, may be at a ‘T’ or cross-intersection.
