Q: How many sessions do I need?

A: A lot of it depends on your ability to grasp things. The whole driving syllabus for a beginner can be covered in about 10 to 12 hours but to have the full confidence to handle the most complicated traffic situations, you will definitely need to drive a lot more in a variety of traffic situations, road conditions and weather conditions.

Q: What do I need to have to be able to take driving lessons?

A: A valid New Zealand learners licence or restricted license or overseas license.

Q: Can I use my own car?

A: Provided it is in road worthy condition and you have the necessary
skills to handle it. Your car might not have dual controls fitted.

Q: Do I need to come to you for the driving lessons?

A: You can but I provide door to door service.

Q: When do I pay for the lessons?

A: At each lesson unless prior arrangements have been made to pay otherwise.

Q: Can I cancel a driving  lesson?

A: Usually 48 hours notice applies but if something urgent comes up at the last moment, give us a call and we can reschedule your driving lesson.

Q: Can I use the driving school car for my practical driving test?

A: Yes, most of my students prefer to use driving school car for the test
at the completion of the driving course. However there is no problem using your own car.
