    Common questions

    • How many lessons will I need?

      That will depend on where you are in your journey and how much practice you can do outside of lessons. It's best to book a lesson and our instructor can get to know you and your skills better. From there we can work on a plan to get you prepared for your licence.
    • What do I need to bring to my lessons?
      You must come along to all lessons and assessments with a valid driver’s licence permit.
    • Can I hire your cars for my Ps test?
      You can now do your assessment with us, in our cars. Find out more about out P1 pilot program. If you're doing your assessment with the Department of State Growth, you can still hire our cars. The easiest way to do this is to call us on 1300 761 429 with your driver’s licence number and payment details. We will log in to the Transport Tasmania booking portal to find a test time where our cars are available for you to use.
