How do our lessons work?
When your instructor arrives for your first lesson, he or she will want to assess your current skill level so that they can progress from there onwards. It doesn’t matter whether it’s your first drive or if you already have plenty of experience; we work with all skill levels.
Practice makes perfect. We strongly recommend that you practice as much as possible between lessons. This will make you a better driver and also reduce the number of paid lessons you actually need prior to your driving test.
When you are close to reaching the skill level required to attempt the challenging Queensland driving test, we will show you the Driving Assessment Report sheet. This form is used by the Transport and Main Roads examiner when they test you, so it gives you a great idea of what they are looking for. There are a number of items that are compulsory for your test, while some are optional. Not all options are covered on the day; however you need to be proficient in all facets of driving as we can’t predict which items they will cover in your test.

Dash lights and ancillary controls
A car’s dashboard can be a confusing sight for those who are inexperienced behind the wheel. After all, modern vehicles seem to have lights and buttons for everything!
No matter what vehicle you get in, you will need to check the dash for warning lights. While these can vary between cars, any illuminated warning lights on the dash should be investigated prior to driving.
There are also a number of other dash controls that you need to familiarise yourself with. These include the indicators, heater and air conditioner, demister, hazard lights, washers and wipers and also the headlights. Your instructor will run through these with you; however it’s important to note they can vary from car to car.
