You’re a good driver. You’ve never received a driving fine and any accident you’ve been in wasn’t your fault. And your insurance premium and 'no claim bonus' is a testament of your fine track record!

The best driving lessons for teens

Written by Leanne Simpson

lesson packages

 

Price is an important factor when choosing a driving school and customers are constantly looking for the best driving lesson deal available. Sometimes parents give their teenagers the responsibility of researching and buying lessons, making cost especially important.

 

Cheap is not always best.

Choosing the cheapest driving lessons doesn’t mean driving in circles for an hour. But it doesn't mean it's the best driving school either. 

It’s a qualified instructor’s duty to teach their students how to drive safely and understand and put into practice all the road rules they have learnt. Professional driving instructors must have a Certificate IV in Transport and Logistics, a valid Blue Card and follow the policies and procedures the driving school has set. It pays to choose an instructor that will help make your driving experience a calm and enjoyable one without yelling and stress.  And the best driving instructors will offer relevant tips, safe driving advice and information along the way.
