The LDT Syllabus is a resource for the various stakeholders, Approved Driving Instructors (ADIs), sponsors and learners who are essential to developing better, safer drivers on our roads. The Syllabus will help ADIs prepare individual lesson plans around each unit and ensure that the lessons cover the key driving skills and behaviours.
