Training Courses

Yugo Driving School has been servicing Victoria’s transport industry since 1972. Our high standard of training, equipment and testing is second to none. Being a VicRoads Accredited Licence Tester, we train and test you from our depot in Dandenong.

With the growing demand for companies to have their employees trained as quickly as possible, we offer the following one-on-one training courses. The course costs include all training and testing fees.

Group bookings of 2 or more are eligible for a 5% discount.

All courses are available from Monday – Saturday. (Weekends incur a 10% surcharge.)

Some of the key benefits of choosing Yugo Driving School as your heavy vehicle training/testing provider are:

Personalised training: all of our training courses are conducted one-on-one, allowing the instructors to concentrate on training an individual rather than a group.

Hourly lessons: for those who are unable to take the time off work to complete a course, lessons can be arranged by the hour. Hourly lessons are conducted between 7am – 6pm Monday – Saturday.

Courses: courses are time and cost effective as students complete the entire training and testing within one to two days (depending on category).

Refresher training: refresher training is offered to drivers who are already licensed but have not driven for a long time.

Pre-Employment Assessments: includes a one to two hour driving assessment with a written report. This is an effective way for an employer to assess the driving capabilities of any potential new recruit.
