Learning to Drive – Driving Lessons and Advice

How many driving lessons do I need?

      It is a difficult question to answer because everyone is different.


      Professional driving lessons are not necessary, BUT we highly recommended having some. We are the most experienced Driving School in Brisbane. If you are learning in an Automatic car, you will need about 8-10 lessons and in a Manual car, about 10-12 lessons. It depends on the amount of practice you get with a supervising driver, between lessons. If you are not sure how many lessons you might need, please give us a call.

When should I take lessons?

      It is strongly recommended to take a few professional Driving lessons before practicing with Mum and Dad. This will take some of the stress out of the situation for everyone. The best time to take lessons is when your mind is fresh, you need to be able to concentrate on the road to get the best from your driving lessons. Not when you are tired or sick. Being tired will affect your performance and your concentration. For example – the day before a major exam is not a good time to do a driving lesson or go out for a practice.

Should I learn with my parents?

      Yes, if they are willing to take you out. Your parents are the best people to help you get your 100 hours of practice. Remember you need your parents to help you, so treat them with courtesy and respect. Learning to drive, whether with our Driving School or your parents, is about becoming familiar with the car and our roads. You need to get as much practice as possible in a safe environment. Certainly practice with your parents, but be careful to avoid difficult situations which could cause problems. For example – A brand new Learner is not ready to drive home from school.

What happens if it’s raining?

    You need to know how to cope in wet conditions. A lesson with one of our Driving Instructors in the rain is the safest way to learn how to drive on the road in wet conditions. Your Instructor will only cancel lessons if the weather is too dangerous. For example, severe electrical storms with strong winds and driving rain.
