All RMS test centres have different road conditions and several test tracks. Because each test location has something that makes it different to the other test centres, it is very important that you prepare for your test with a driving school that specialises in your local test area.
Best Driving Lessons
Whilst a lot of people claim to be the best there are a few reasons why we think we are the best.
Student Record Card: All our lesson prices include a written evaluation of your driving. When you finish your lesson you will receive a student record card that tells you what you need to work on. Then when you go driving later on you can refer back to the student record card and practice the things you need to work on.
Manual & Automatic Lessons
Yes we offer both automatic and manual lessons. Unfortunately too many driving schools don’t put in the extra effort to become qualified to teach manual lessons. When selecting a driving school you might as well choose the school that has extra qualifications.
Free Keys2Drive Lessons: The federal government offers a free Keys2Drive lesson to learner drivers. To teach this course a driving instructor has to undertake additional training.
Safer Drivers Course: This is a course specifically designed by the Roads & Maritime services for learner drivers under 25 years old. Because this course is divided into two modules and each module requires driving instructors to get additional training and qualifications.
Better Way Training Program: We have spent a long time learning more about road safety and developing our exclusive Better Way driver training program. As a result we have been able to develop structured lessons to suit your specific learning needs and objectives. To learn more about our Better Way training program and why you should choose learn to drive please read our blog Why Choose Learn to Drive.
Older Driver Assessments
In New South Wales every driver is required to undertake an older driver assessment at 85 years of age. These assessments can be completed with the Roads & Maritime Services or with an Accredited Driving Assessor. At Learn to Drive we have Accredited Driving Assessors who conduct assessments in Western Sydney.

Single Diving Lesson:
It takes time to develop the skills to drive and you need time to develop those skills. To do this you need time to practice the things you learn from your driving instructor. That is why we provide a full one hour driving lesson.
You will receive individual tuition from a professional driving instructor who has been fully approved by the Roads and Maritime Services and New South Wales Police. Whilst some driving schools will have two or more students in the car at the same time. We do not conduct group driving lessons with two or more students at the same time. Because we know that you will learn more and become a better driver with an with an individual driving lesson that focuses on your needs.
At the end of your driving lesson you will be given a student record card that shows you all the things you could be tested on. Your driving instructor will update your student record card at the end of each lesson with the things you need to practice or improve upon.
In addition a single lesson is a great way to start learning to drive or to iron out any problems before you do the driving test. It is also a great way to meet your driving instructor and make sure that you are comfortable with the car. For more information on what to expect in your first driving lesson please read our blog “First Driving Lesson Expectations.”
3 Hour Lesson Package
Maybe you are a first time driver who wants to learn the basics of driving before going for a drive with your supervising driver. You can learn the basic controls of the car including things like starting, stopping, steering and the correct road position.
Alternatively if you are in the final stages of preparing for your driving test this is an ideal package to learn the manoeuvres for the driving test. This includes parking and three point turns. Your driving instructor will also have the opportunity to evaluate your driving and identify any areas that need improvement.
5 Hour Lesson Package
If you are just starting to learn to drive you will benefit greatly from an extra couple of hours with a professional driving instructor. The reality is that it takes time to learn how to drive safely, that is why you have to complete 120 log book hours before you can do the driving test. In the first three hours of this package you will learn the basics of driving. Then you will start learning how to apply the various road rules in real life situations. It is you ability to apply road rules and make good decisions that will determine how safe you are on the road.
If you are getting ready for the driving test and you have a few things you need to get right like blind spot checks and reverse parallel parking then you will benefit greatly from our 5 lesson package. It is only natural to get nervous in the driving test and when you are nervous it is very difficult to try and remember a lot of things you need to do to pass the test. By doing a five lesson package you will have the time and practice to create good driving habits. When you have good driving habits you are far more likely to pass the driving test.
10 Hour Lesson Package
This is a ten lesson package that is designed for the person who wants to become a good driver. This is the package we recommend for learner drivers who are just starting to drive. You will be given the opportunity to learn the correct driving techniques and develop safe driving strategies that will make you a good driver. By learning to drive the correct way in the beginning you will develop good driving habits that will stay with you throughout your driving life.
Research shows that the standard of on road driver education you receive plays a significant role in determining your ability to drive safely. This package will help you develop better decision making skills and improve your ability to drive safely.
Unfortunately too many people spend a long time learning and practising poor driving techniques. Then when they fail the driving test they realise that they have wasted a lot of time and they have to change the way they drive. It is much harder to change a bad habit than to learn the correct technique in the beginning.
By completing our 10 hour package you will have more time to develop safe driving techniques. In addition to this you will have more time to develop a better understanding of the road rules. Then you will learn how to apply them in real life situations. The reality is you will have to make decisions in fractions of a second when you are driving that will have a very real impact upon your safety. By giving yourself more time to learn you will
- Develop a better driving technique
- Improve your decision making skills
- Learn how to minimise the risk of being in a motor vehicle accident.
- Learn basic defensive driving techniques
- Become a Safer Driver
Trial Driving Test
