Frequently Asked Questions    

How many driving lessons does the average person need?

The average learner requires about 20 hours of professional instruction to be adequately prepared for their driving test. This is in addition to the supervised hours tracked in your logbook.

Are driving lessons worth it?

Driving lessons not only contribute to your ability to pass your driving test, but they also help make you a safer driver in the long run. An instructor can offer much more specialised advice than someone helping out, and they can give you tips and tricks for your licence test!

I’ve never driven before. Can I have a driving lesson?

Yes. If it’s your first time driving, we’ll plan a customised lesson to introduce you to the road! Don’t worry – we’ll make the experience educational, supportive, and stress-free. We’ll show you what you need to know and help you start your driving journey with confidence! 

How much do driving lessons cost in Sydney?

The cost of driving lessons ranges depending on the duration of the lesson and the qualifications of your instructor. Typically, you can expect to pay between $60 and $90 an hour for a driving lesson in Sydney.

How do I choose a driving instructor?

There are several things to consider when selecting a driving instructor, including:

–           Their qualifications and accreditations.

–           Their customer reviews.

–           Their lesson plan and structure.

–           Any unique offerings (like our integration of mindfulness training!).

How do I record driving lessons in my logbook?

For every 1 hour of a driving lesson, you can record 3 hours in your logbook. Please note you can only claim up to a maximum of 10 hours of lessons as 30 hours of driving in your logbook.

Do you teach mature-age learner drivers?

Yes! We teach people new to driving at an older age or who have recently moved to Australia.
