Full Licence

The Driver Qualification Handbook produced by Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) aims to help you become a safer driver and obtain your full licence by presenting information on the most common crash types (so you can avoid them) and a revision of hazard perception.

Part 1 of the Driver Qualification Test (DQT) is a multiple choice test that can assess the material from the Handbook. Part 2 of the DQT is an advanced version of the Hazard Perception Test. As the Handbook content is directly assessable, it it vital you obtain and read the most recent version of the Handbook (which can be found here).

After the initial reading, revision can be difficult as the task of re-reading and revising the 116-page Handbook is no mean feat. As such, drivingtestnsw.com has produced a summary of the Driver Qualification Handbook to help you prepare for the DQT.

The drivingtestnsw.com summary concentrates on assessable material and allows for targeted and effective revision for Part 1 of the DQT while providing a strong base for Part 2 preparation.

The summary was developed based on feedback from successful DQT takers who have advised the DQT has a greater focus on specific facts. As a result, the summary presents the required information in a far more accessible and memorable way, better enabling you to retain the information for the test.

What's more, the summary condenses and synthesises the assessable material into a manageable 28-page document - allowing for more frequent and effective revision.
