Top Driving Lessons related questions

What are the benefits of booking driving lessons?

Booking a professional driving lesson will help take the stress out of learning to drive. Driving instructors have current knowledge on road rules, a car that’s designed for learning in, and endless patience for new drivers.

How many lessons does it take to learn how to drive?

You can master the basics in as few as 10-15 lessons, but really learning to drive safely requires many hours of practice (minimum 120 hours before you take the test) to reinforce the skills and reflexes of driving. Weekly lessons for a few months with supervised practice in between will help build your driving skills so you can pass your test sooner.

Am I required to book professional driving lessons before I go for my licence?

You don’t need to have professional driving lessons before your licence test. However, you will usually need to demonstrate with a logbook that you’ve had the minimum number of supervised hours in different conditions with a fully licensed driver.

Can I learn to drive in my own car?

If you’re having professional driving lessons, your instructor will usually prefer to use their own vehicle, as they have specific insurance and dual controls. If you’re learning to drive in your own car, make sure your insurance is up to date and covers learner drivers.

Does my driving instructor need any qualifications to take driving lessons?

Driving instructors that provide lessons or tests in exchange for payment usually need to have completed a mandatory course in driving instruction and a current police check. The requirements may vary slightly depending on what state you live in.

How much does it cost to take driving lessons?

The average cost of driving lessons is around $40-$47 per lesson when you book an instructor through Airtasker. You may be able to get a cheaper rate per lesson if you book several in advance.

What does a driving lesson include?

Driving lessons are more than just having someone sit beside you and watch you drive until you pass your test. Professional driving instructors explain road rules, teach skills to help you drive in different conditions, and build your confidence on the road. Here’s how your driving instructor can help you:

L plates test

The first step in getting your licence is to pass the theory test and get your “L” plates. While the rules vary from state to state, this first stage allows you to drive under supervision with restrictions. Your driving instructor will give you the facts and take you through the practice questions to help you remember the rules and pass your test.

 Your first lesson

Professional driving instructors have dual control cars that allow new drivers to learn safely. Many new drivers get booked in for a few beginner lessons with a professional driving instructor to get a safe headstart on road rules and learning to drive. The first few lessons will include a mixture of learning the car driving basics, safe stopping and starting, using mirrors and indicators, and checking blind spots. If you’re getting picked up from home, your instructor may drive at first to get you to a quiet car park or low-risk area with minimal traffic.

Learning to drive

In most states, you need to get around 120 hours of supervised practice before taking your provisional licence test. Depending on how quickly you master the basics, the next step is to move onto the open road. Booking regular sessions with a local driving instructor will ensure you get practice in different driving conditions, including rain, nighttime driving, and on busy highways, and get to know the area you’ll be tested on. Plus, depending on your state, hours spent with a professional driving instructor may count as extra in your logbook, so it can help get you to your goal faster.

Taking your driving test

If you already have your own car, you might choose to use it for your practical driving test to qualify for your P plates. But if your car is an automatic and you’d like to get a full, unrestricted manual licence, you might choose to book your instructor’s car instead. Plus, you can be confident your instructor’s car will fit all the requirements for your test. It’s also a good idea to book a driving lesson on the day of the test to help calm your nerves and review the usual test route with your instructor one last time. Your instructor may join you for your test, but they won’t be allowed to provide you with any instructions or advice.
