Mining and Constrction Industry

Motor School has developed a mine specific driver training program that meets mine site standards required for individuals to operate a light vehicle on surface mine sites.

Motor School’s training is constructed to assist mining companies, employees, contractors and visitors towards eliminating or minimising the risk of incidents, injuries and fatalities associated with the use of vehicles both on a mine site and on any public and private roads used to access mine locations.

The Motor School difference is that we have a wide range of nationally recognised competencies to empower your workforce to practice and promote safe driving principles for mine industry employees within their daily activities and routines.

Motor School has the experience, flexibility, and aptitude to deliver the necessary skills, education and accreditation from recruit induction phase through to longstanding mine industry workforce experience. In fact, Motor School has been delivering driver training to the coal mining sector throughout the Bowen basin since 1995, and designed and developed in the BMA Safe Driving package and DVD.

Importantly, all Motor School courses are constructed and delivered in accordance with the Competency for Standard: RII09 Resources and Infrastructure Industry Training Package.
