Frequently Asked Questions

Q. How many lessons should I have?

A. There are several factors that will determine how many lessons you will need. These include how quickly you learn, your level of competence and if you are a nervous driver. After your first lesson we will have a pretty good idea of how many lessons you should have.

Q. Should I learn in a manual or automatic car?

A. Learning in an automatic car is easier and most likely you won’t need as many lessons. However if you have an automatic licence you can only drive an automatic car whilst on your probationary licence. If you are planning to drive a manual car, you will need to obtain a manual licence.

Q. Why should I have driving lessons from a professional?

A. To pass your driving test, you not only need to know how to manoeuvre the vehicle but also the finer points of driving as well as the road rules. Having lessons from a professional will allow you to learn all the things that you will be tested on as well as tips to keep you safe after obtaining your licence.

Q. Why can’t I have a 45 minute lesson?

A. It’s not enough time. By the time you get in the car, drive around a bit, it’s time to drive home again. With a 60 min lesson, that extra 15 mins of actual driving makes it much more worthwhile.

Q. Can you guarantee I'll get my licence first time?

A. The short answer is no. We don’t guarantee you will get your licence first time because there are so many factors outside of our control – how you perform on the day, the conditions, the tester, etc. What we can say is we do have a great success rate.
