Driver Skills Australia courses are held at Mt Cotton Driver Training Centre – located on Mt Cotton Road. Courses start at 9am. Please arrive by 8.45am unless otherwise advised.



The centre is 40kms from Brisbane and 60kms from the Gold Coast. You should enter from Redland Bay Road end and travel for 3kms. DSA Training courses usually meet in the first car park on the left before the main gate and just before the road that leads to the tip.

NOTE – GPS systems often take you elsewhere – so be cautious if using one and follow the map instead!


What to bring / wear / know

** Any date changes to a booking within 7 days will incur a $100 rebooking fee. This includes cancellations and no-shows for any reason. Please insure you can make your booking and contact the DSA office should you wish to change it within 7 days.

Bring your car – make sure you check tyre pressures (34PSi Small/Medium Cars – 36PSi Large cars – 40PSi 4WD Vehicles). Remove all loose items and make sure you have enough fuel. 2 drivers can share one car on the day if required.

Bring some lunch – most venues have a fridge. You can also buy lunch but this will require you leaving the training facility and will take up most of your lunch break (usually 30mins).

Bring some water – it gets hot outside! So bring some water and stay hydrated.

Wear suitable clothing – activities are done outside and there is little/no shelter. So dress accordingly for the weather and be prepared for good/bad weather changes.

Bring your drivers licence – Make sure you bring this with you!

You will be requiured to complete some paperwork during the day – so bring a pen, notepad and or anything else that might make your day a bit easier.

Don’t forget to have fun!
