How many lessons will I need?
The number of lessons each learner driver requires differs. Ask your driver trainer about your progress and the number of lessons you may need.
Once the basic skills have been mastered, it is important for a learner driver to get plenty of practice in a variety of conditions. Research indicates that learners who have a lot of practice are less likely to have a crash after obtaining their provisional licence.
Note: All learner drivers under the age of 25 years of age must gain 100 hours of supervised on-road driving experience and record it in an approved Department of Transport and Main Roads logbook. Your logbook must also show 10 hours of night driving as part of the 100 hour requirement.
10 hours of driving lessons with an accredited driver trainer equals 30 hours towards your 100 learner logbook. Every subsequent hour with a driver trainer can be credited as a logged driving experience hour.
All accredited driver trainers are qualified training professionals and have formal recognition with the Department of Transport and Main Roads. They are familiar with Q-SAFE testing standards, and can assist you in:
- developing excellent driving habits
- planning your driving experience
- completing your learner logbook.
