Separate Trainers and Assessors

From 1st September 2015, new RMS regulations are in place requiring that training and assessment are conducted by separate assessors. At ABC Driving School we are happy to announce that this will not inconvenience you at all. All training centres have the staff to comply. Training and Assessment can still be conducted in one or two days as you have been used to.
