Frequently Asked Questions

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.

If you own an automatic car or would like to possibly obtain your licence more easily, then perhaps an automatic Licence Test is for you. You can always gain confidence in your automatic vehicle and go for your manual licence later on.

HOW MANY LESSONS BEFORE I AM A COMPETENT DRIVER?

This depends on the individual. Extensive driving experience with your parents, different learning abilities, or greater confidence all impact on the number of lessons required. Our instructors tailor every lesson to the student and will inform you of your progress.

HOW LONG DO LESSONS GO FOR?

Lessons run for 60 and 45 minutes-all beginning from a previously agreed location, usually your home, school or work.

WHAT ARE VICROADS FEES AND BOOKINGS?

Your trainer will book your licence test once he/she considers you have reached the required skill level to pass.

VicRoads charge a booking fee for each test. Once you have passed the test you must also pay the fee for a probationary licence. You can choose either a 3 year or 10 year licence in Victoria.
