Frequently Asked Questions:
Q. - "How many hours will it take for me to learn to drive?"

A. - Well, that depends on: prior experiences, prior driving related knowledge, attitude and dedication and opportunities to practice skills between lessons etc. Until an instructor has spent some time with the student behind the wheel it is hard to determine how long it might actually take.

Q. - "What if I don't pass the test?"

A. - Anyone can take the driving test at any time after passing the written exam. If, after lessons you don't pass the skills evaluation, you may choose to seek more lessons or practice time, or you may immediately retake the test. However, there will be a fee for each re-test.
