How long do lessons go for?

Single lessons run for 45 minutes. Double lessons are also available and run for 90 minutes.

Lessons can start at home, school or work, and if necessary can finish at other locations - please mention this when booking your lesson if this service is required.

How many lessons will I need?

This depends on a number of things including how confident you are as a driver, how easily you learn new skills and how much practise you have had.

Our instructors tailor their lessons to suit each learner’s ability.

When you feel confident and the instructor believes you are ready they will book your license test.

On average a learner might have about 8-12 lessons.

Should I learn to drive an automatic or manual?

This is entirely up to you.

Learning to drive an automatic car is easier.

However, If you choose to get an automatic license you will not be able to drive a manual car until you are off your P-plates.

If necessary you can always go for your manual license later on when you are more confident.

Can you book my test for me?

Yes, we can book both your Hazard Perception Test and your Driver’s Licence Test for you.

What do I need to bring on the day of my test?

You will need your Learner’s Permit, your log book and the fees for Vic Roads and the Driving School.

Why should I learn to drive with a driving school?

Our instructors are highly qualified professionals who will teach you to become safe, competent and assertive drivers.

Our modern cars are equipped with dual controls to ensure you can learn while feeling confident at all times.

Our instructors are knowledgeable in the Vic Roads testing criteria, testing courses and road law.

What if I haven’t completed 120 hours of driving on test day?

Learner drivers who do not log 120 hours of driving (including at least 10 hours at night) will not be permitted to take their driving test and will forfeit their test and appointment fees.

Learner drivers who are 21 years or older, or those who obtained their learner permit prior to 1 July,2007 do not need to complete 120 hours of supervised driving.
