License Info

In order to drive in Victoria you need a valid permit or license. To drive safely on roads it is important to understand your rights and responsibilities.
After passing the written road rules test, the next step is finding a driving school and learning to become a safe driver by getting the driving lessons from a professional driving instructor.

When making the selection of the driving school, the cheapest is not always the best. The following points to be kept in mind:
  • Driving instructor’s licence and experience
  • Length of lessons to be undertaken
  • A swell designed course and structure of the driving lessons
Ideally, you should go for a single lesson booking first and depending on how was your comfort level with the instructor; you can then choose from the long term package options.

When it comes to learn how to drive, it is not only to obtain a licence. The main purpose of hiring a professional driving instructor is to learn to drive safe. There are number of driving schools in Melbourne, each with their own characteristics, and so it becomes a difficult to choose which one is right for you. Frankly speaking, it is a toss of coin as before hiring a driving instructor you would have no idea about the service. So before going for a package option (which will save you the money),
  • Go for the trail
  • Hour driving lesson, or may be
That way you can understand the comfort level, the co-ordinance between you and the instructor. Once you are satisfied, then after you can select from the package option available.

The key characteristics of a good driving instructor would be –
  • Patient
  • Friendly
  • Understanding
  • Approachable
  • Good driver
  • Calm under pressure
Of course, you will be looking at the costs involved in the process. But choosing the right instructor is very important for the safer driving even in future. A good driving instructor will prepare you for the worst of the scenarios and make your lessons enjoyable, along with some tips of passing the test in the first go. Make sure that you know what length of the driving lessons is when you are opting for the package option.
