Do I get a discount for being an NRMA Member?

The course costs are set by the RMS so a monetary discount to NRMA Members is unable to be given.

What happens if I need to reschedule or cancel my already booked course?

In the event a course participant wishes to cancel following booking and payment and the date for Module 1 is further than seven days, the participant will be given the option to reschedule or request a full refund. In the event there are less than 7 days until the delivery of Module 1 all attempts will be made to reschedule their session to their preferred session time and date subject to availability.  If we are unable to reschedule their Module 1 session to their preferred session and they wish to cancel, or if they want to cancel in general, then they will forfeit the full course fee of $140 for NRMA Safer Driving to reschedule affected participants.  If they reschedule their scheduled Module 2 session after having completed Module 1, they will be required to pay an additional $140 for NRMA to reschedule affected participants and cover administration costs.  No-shows and cancellations will forfeit the full course fee of $140.
