Q. How many lessons should I do?
A. We recommend that you start with 5 one hour lessons to learn the basic fundamentals of safe driving as well as steering and cornering techniques.
This will help you and your supervising driver stay safe on the road while you accumulate hours. Once you have reached 30 - 40 hours of driving time you may want a lesson on each of the manouvres - 3 point turn, reverse park and hill start, as well as traffic lessons. Once you have reached 90 hours its time to start consolidating your experience and become P Plate ready with 4 - 6 lessons.

Q. How often should I do lessons?
A. This is up to the individual and is determined by available time, finances, study etc.
Some clients choose to have a 1 hour lesson once per week or fortnight to keep their skills advancing over time, and others have lessons in blocks of 2 hours once per month. Our instructors can discuss this with you and help develop a plan that suits your needs and finances.

a. The RMS does not have cars to use for the driving test, you can either use your own car or a driving school car once we have assessed you as test competent.
Q. I have a learning disability or physical disability, what should I do ?
A. If you have any condition or are taking medication it is important you discuss this with your instructor. Your instructor can advise you if it is safe to be driving or they can develop a training plan that suits your personal needs and learning style. Medication and certain illnesses are required by law to be reported to the RMS by the driver/learner, these include diabetes, epilepsy, heart conditions and medications that can affect driving ability.
