Have your driving instructor accompany you to your driving test.  We’ll pick you up ahead of time to have a 45 minutes drive prior to your test.  At this point you should be very confident and it is mainly to help you calm your nerves and get comfortable before your driving test. 

Your driving instructor is your advocate during your test should any concerns arise. Please bear in mind that an extra cost will be involved.

The Graduation system in Victoria requires a new driver to have 120 hours of supervised driving.  It usually takes a year to attain the level of a skilled & competent driver.  This depends on how much you practice and the number of lessons you do.

Due to safety and insurance reasons we conduct driving lessons in our dual-controlled vehicles.  This allows us to intervene should a potentially dangerous situation occur. 

Minimum 1 per week to keep your skills up to date and to progress.  However you will need to keep driving under the supervision of a fully licenced driver (friends, family member, etc).  You should be putting what you’ve learnt during our lessons into practice. If you are unable to practice on your own or with someone else two lessons a week are recommended.

Have your current learner’s permit or overseas licence with you. 

Arrive about 5-10 minutes ahead of time. 

If you have an early morning lesson ensure you are well rested and alert ready to learn.

Fill in the appropriate enrolment forms and send them back to the office via email with receipt of payment as soon as possible.

With structured driving lessons, proper guidance & instructions, frequent practice, the test is fairly straight forward.

We tailor lessons to you and help you gain confidence in areas where you need improvement.  

When you feel confident you can do a practice test with us, where we’ll take you around VIC Roads testing areas under strict test conditions.

This will give you a real feel of what it’s like and how you handle the nerves.
