Should I take a manual or automatic car for my driving lessons?
Which transmission you choose to learn in is your decision. You'll decide this when you first book in with us. Keep in mind if you learn to drive and pass your test in an anutomatic you will not be able to drive a manual which may prove to be an inconvenience in the future. Learning to drive automatic is becoming very popular though and keep in mind automatic lessons are a little more expensive due to supply and demand.
How many driving lessons will I need to take to pass my test?
How long is a piece of string? Seriously though, it really does vary from person to person but the Road Safety Authority (the government agency in charge of driving licences) has made it mandatory for all learners to complete the 12 lesson EDT before they can book a driving test. And it advises that learners should be having at least 2 hours of practice between these EDT lessons which totals a minimum of 36 hours.
What happens if I don't get on with my driving instructor?
While is extremely rare it is possible that a student and an instructor don't have good chemistry. And you feeling comfortable on your driving lessons is essential to us. If you feel this way after your first lesson and let us know within 24 horus we will fully refund you for that lesson or switch you to a better suited instructor.

Can I fast track my driving lessons?
