Top Driving Lessons related questions

With manual cars, you control the gear system by moving the gear stick and pressing the clutch pedal. Unlike automatic vehicles, they automatically change gears without the need for a clutch pedal. This way, you can just focus on accelerating and braking. While it’s already less common to drive a manual vehicle today, some people still fancy getting this type of car as it’s cheaper, plus it has greater control over gears. 

Car driving requires uncompromising skills on the road, so when you’re looking for a personal instructor, make sure to hire someone seasoned in the field. They should have a professional, unrestricted license with several years of driving experience. It is also essential that they have the correct authorisation to conduct a private driving lesson. Before you book their service, you can request a copy of their license or certificates to confirm their qualifications for the job. 

It is vital to hold at least a provisional or learning driving license before taking a driving lesson. If you have impaired vision, it is also necessary that you wear your eyeglasses when you are behind the wheel. This way, you can determine any potential hazards and make sure that your entire driving experience is safe. Lastly, wear comfortable shoes and avoid any uncomfortable footwear that can limit your movement.

One hour per session is the standard length for a driving lesson, which already includes a short briefing, starting the car, and moving around roads. In case you find an hour too quick, you can always request to extend it, especially if there are more concepts that you want to learn other than the mere basics. You can book a one-off excursion or regular car driving lessons until you can finally go around confidently without supervision. 

Yes, but take note that services vary from Tasker to Tasker. Your driving instructor can pick you up and drop you off at a particular location you prefer, including your work office. But if you need someone who can regularly get you a ride to or from home or work, you need a personal driver. You can also use the Airtasker platform to find a licenced driver who can lend a hand. 

Definitely! Some Taskers in your area can also arrange driving lessons for kids between 12-16 years old. This course only intends to give them their first driving experience in a safe environment guided by a trained instructor. Apart from driving, you can also enrol them in other after-school activities and have someone teach them swimming or karate or tutor them in their maths or science subjects.

What do driving lessons include?

Driving lessons include courses about car controls and operators, driving rules and safety issues, and essential habits to master on the road. For starters, your driving tuition also covers basic practices like starting the car, covering the clutch and brake, or moving around quiet roads. While most driving instructors can bring their four wheels for the task, feel free to use your own if you want! Although to avoid any unfortunate incidents during your driving lesson, make sure to have your vehicle diagnosed and serviced in advance. Here’s what to expect from your car driving lessons:

Automatic driving lessons

There are more things to learn from your automatic driving lesson than simply braking and accelerating. When you book automatic car driving lessons near you, instructors will introduce you to the automatic gearboxes, which commonly contain letters and numbers signifying park, reverse, neutral, and drive. Understanding the brake and accelerator pedals is easy, so your instructor may focus on teaching you about the mirror, speed, and how to shift gears when driving up or down a slope, in traffic jams, or when parking. Having automatic driving lessons near you also lets you drive around, starting from a quiet parkway or backstreet and maybe reversing around a corner. Since this car is significantly easier to manoeuvre, it wouldn’t take long before you start practising around busier public roads.

Manual driving lessons

Due to its complicated controls, driving and mastering a manual car can be a little more intricate than learning an automatic vehicle. Braking and accelerating are easy, but clutch pedalling can be more challenging. One of the best ways to get a clear grasp of its functions is learning the biting or friction point. Once you’ve got the hang of it, your instructor lets you know how to shift gears to maximise your fuel consumption. Driving on hills is optional but still a critical element of your manual driving lesson. If you don’t know how to control your clutch and change gears on a slope, chances are you might start rolling down. To avoid such conflicts, ask your instructor for tips and tricks when getting manual driving lessons near you.

Advanced driving lessons

If you want to take your driving skills to the next level, you can also turn to Airtasker for intensive driving lessons near you. An experienced driver takes charge of this task. Usually, it includes a range of defensive and performance driving courses to help you drive more efficiently on public roads and highways. No need to overspend on advanced driving tuition! Nearby instructors on Airtasker can teach you how to control your vehicle when faced with difficult situations like wet and slippery road surfaces. If needed, you can also ask your Tasker how to deal with a sudden breakdown before bringing your vehicle to a mechanic shop. 

In such unfortunate cases that you can no longer move or drive your automobile, it is better to stay where you are and let a mobile car repair expert come over and help you out.
