Unit Standards For The New Zealand Class 1 Driver Licence Now Listed
April 25, 2016 at 4:31 AM
Learners enrolled in schools or registered tertiary education organisations (TEOs) which hold consent to assess for the ‘Driver licence class 1’ domain can now get the New Zealand Class 1 Driver Licence Unit standards.
There’re three standards, namely:
• 29363 – With this, a person can learn to drive a vehicle but within the conditions of the class 1 New Zealand learner driving licence.
• 29364 – This allows the learner to drive a vehicle in New Zealand but under the conditions of the Class 1 New Zealand restricted driver licence.
• 29365 – Learners can drive a vehicle under the conditions of a Class 1 New Zealand full driver licence.
Credits from the above standards can contribute towards the achievement of NCEA and other qualifications on the New Zealand Qualifications Framework.
How schools and institutions get consent to assess
Since these standards are included in the Base Scope of Assessment for Schools, secondary schools get automatic consent to assess for the class 1 Driver Licence unit standards.
The schools should, however, update their consent files from the NZQA website. The school’s student management system (SMS) may also require refreshing for access to the latest standards available. The information will be available from SMS vendors from 5 April 2016.
Reporting costs and monitoring of standards
All the reporting fees are covered by the learner’s standard fees collected by the school annually. The NZQA will collaborate with The New Zealand Transport Agency to monitor the award of the standards.
