You can only book and attend a course if you can understand, speak and read English well, and can complete a knowledge test without an Interpreter.

Practice Quiz

Before the course, visit our Course & Test page and take the Online Practice Quiz. This valuable tool will help you pass, and it's user-friendly. As you progress through the 'pool' of multiple-choice questions, you'll be shown whether you've answered correctly or incorrectly. If you are wrong, you're shown the right answer with a green tick. That's the answer you need to remember. RMS does not provide this function when you officially take the Knowledge Test at the course. We recommend you take the quiz a few times to be able to pass the Knowledge Test.

Arrival Time

Doors open 30 minutes prior to the course start. You must arrive before the start time. Provide the venue name and address to your family and friends. Please arrange to have eaten, be well rested and allow plenty of time to arrive safely and on time. No hats or singlets are allowed within the Club.
