Getting your NSW Driver Licence

Being a safe driver means more than just passing a test. You want to be confident on the road and adapt to any vehicle or traffic conditions you may encounter. All New South Wales drivers under the age of 25 must complete 120 hours of supervised driving before testing. Don’t want your parents in the passenger seat? A professional driving instructor can provide road experience and tips on how to hone your skills.

Types of Driving Lesson Packages in NSW

Are you a new driver or seeking to convert an overseas license? When it comes to driving in NSW, we offer various packages with one right for you.

Learning to Drive

As a learner driver, 120 hours seems unreachable but, it’s time to slide into the driver seat and hit the road. A supportive mentor will teach you to drive and explain applicable road laws. They will also address any questions or concerns you have. Whether you want to perfect parallel parking or lane changes on the highway, we’ll give you the instruction and feedback to pass your test the first time.

Learning to Drive Manual

Automatic or manual? You already know that a manual transmission is easier on the brakes, usually costs less, and older manuals tend to be more fuel-efficient than their automatic counterparts. But, you’ve only ever driven an automatic, but that five-speed fits your budget. What to do? With over 300 different makes and models available in Australia, a deal on a new manual isn’t impossible, and driving one isn’t either. Manuals are still the car of choice for racers, enthusiasts, and cost-conscious consumers.

Preparing for the Test

The Trent on the Road (TORT) assessment helps students become safe drivers, know examiner expectations, and pass on the first try. You should have completed 1 lesson working on your skills, such as reverse parking. Our driving routes are more complex than the actual exam, and our customized test gives feedback, so you only spend time on the skills you need to strengthen. We also provide transportation to and from the testing site and a short warm-up to take away those test day jitters.

Safe Driving Course

This course is planned for the learner driver who wishes to understand better becoming a safer driver, lessen risks, and foresee dangerous conditions on the road.

We have course modules broken into 2 sections to assist you with obtaining a license. These are readily available on our website.

Our in-class activities and car coaching sessions will ensure you are drive safely long after your test is complete. A safe driving record can also lower insurance rates. The course is for anyone who wants to brush up on their driving skills.

Keys to Drive

Our free 60-minute program allows parents/supervisors to experience what it’s like to teach someone to drive. We aim to form a collaborative relationship between students, mentors, and parents. This course contains a theoretical and practical component that equips you for life on and off the road.

Open Road Sessions

Are you itching to hit the open road? Highway travel tips can ensure safe road trips, no matter how near or far you venture.

Aged Assessment

As we age, our reflexes and reaction times become slower. You may need to fill out assessments for insurance coverage. Our accredited assessors will come to you and evaluate your driving skills to provide the documentation you need.

Converting Your Overseas Licence

We’ve helped countless overseas licensed drivers get through this complex process, from completing paperwork to test preparation. You can drive for three months before converting your license. Additional testing may not be necessary but, you must review requirements to ensure compliance with NSW laws.

Call to schedule an appointment to provide your overseas license, proof of identity, proof of Australian permanent residency, the application form, and the relevant fee. An eyesight exam is mandatory for everyone.

Test for Success

Our handbook includes information on the driver exam. Here’s what we focus on:

  • Speed management
  • Traffic skills
  • Vision and decision making
  • Manoeuvres
  • Mindset and stress management
  • Vehicle and logbook preparation

We partner with local schools to provide presentations that are engaging, flexible, and free. Lasting about 30 minutes, they supplement driver education programs.
