FAQ :


Q. SHOULD I LEARN IN AN AUTOMATIC OR MANUAL VEHICLE?

It depends on your situation. It is easier to learn in an automatic car, because there is no clutch or gears to worry about. This means you will most likely require fewer lessons. However if you obtain an automatic vehicle licence, you will not be licensed to drive a manual car while holding your probationary licence.

Q. HOW MANY LESSONS BEFORE I AM A COMPETENT DRIVER?

This depends on an individual. Extensive driving experience with your parents, different learning abilities, or greater confidence all impact on the number of lessons required. Our instructor tailors every lesson to the student and will let you know how you're going, but as a rule of thumb, a complete beginner can be taught to drive with between 8 and 14 lessons.

SOME STRATEGIES/ TIPS YOU COULD UTILISE:

Ask your parents/guardian to sit in on a professional lesson to help them with advice and confidence to train you
Agree to take some professional lessons so your parents don't have to teach you, just supervise while you practice.
Agree to practice in a quiet car park until you and your parents agree you're ready for the road.
Take on a task that free's time for your parents to supervise or teach you.
Look for situations where you can have practice when your supervisor has to go out anyway – like helping them with the grocery shopping in exchange for driving there and back.
