There are no specific ratios for courses run in the Transport School, due to the range and variety of courses conducted there. There are specific courses such as the Motor Transport Driver Instructors Course and the Motor Transport Driver Testers Course where the School operates a 2:1 Student to Instructor ratio. There are ratios for Defence Forces driver training courses run within Brigades and Formations; this is a ratio of 2:1 Student to Instructor as per the Defence Forces Driver Training Instruction 02/2016.
