How many lessons will I need?

Everyone learns at different rates and in different ways. Our commitment to you is to get you though Safely with as few lessons as possible. We hope to work with parents/guardians where ever possible and can work out a plan to fit your budget.

Where do I go for my lesson?

We will come to you! We can pick you up where ever you like and drop you off where ever you need to be within our lesson areas.

Where will my lesson be?

Beginner - 0-5 Hours: For you first drive the instructor will usually drive you to a quiet area away from traffic. You will then take over and get familiar with the car, you will then slowly move into more and more high density traffic areas until you are driving through the center of town, this may take a lesson our two if you are not confident.   Intermediate - 10-90 Hours You will probably start driving from your pickup point and the instructor will see how you are going and develop the lesson accordingly. You will likely be driving through the center of town and will introduce manoeuvres once you have shown good vehicle control.   Ready for Test - 90+ Hours: We have a couple of different routes we make take you around including the center of town, you will also be taken through the manoeuvres.   Getting your hours up: Once you have shown competency in all areas but are still wanting lessons to help get your 100 hours we'll start doing trips down and up the range or back up through Murphy's Creek. We also offer a half day lesson into Brisbane and back.

When should I start having lessons?

Ideally you should start straight away and build good driving habits rather than trying to fix bad habits later. Another benefit of course is that our cars all have dual controls so we can protect our clutch and gears during those early days and are also able to help get the car going to prevent too much frustration building at the beginning. We recommend three to four lessons early on to get beginners confidently on the roads a Keys2Drive lessons would be good at this point, it's free! After that consider one lesson for every 10 hours logged just to keep a check on driver habits. Having said all that, we will work with what you give us and make sure you get the best service and results possible.

Am I covered by Insurance?

Absolutely. It is an important question when choosing a driving school that you know that you will be looked after. At U Can Drive we are fully insured and all our instructors have passed police and working with children checks. Rest assured your safety is covered every time you get behind the wheel with us. Insurances: Fully Comprehensive. Public Liability. Professional Indemnity.

How safe are your students when they get their P's?

A drivers likelihood of accident is highest the first day they get their P's! At U Can Drive we put time and effort into training students in real life situations. It's fine to teach in a super controlled environment with a supervisor telling them everything they need to do, but is this realistic? Once your child has their P License they will be playing music, their phone will be ringing and their mates will be distracting them. We like to recreate some of these situations and help students learn to deal with these distractions in safe and legal manner. We also like to train to the point where they are no-longer receiving step-by-step instruction but rather doing it themselves. We discuss this and much more during the FREE Keys2Drive lesson.

Do you do Defensive Driving Courses?

Yes we do! We have three different levels of Defensive Driving: On-Road Defensive Driving Looking for a basic two hour refresher or an upgrade of skills, this is one you need. This course is also helpful for parents to get a refresher before teaching their children. Court-Ordered Defensive Driving Made one too many mistakes and you want to help the court to give you Special Hardship Order? Give us a call, your certificate will not mention Court Ordered.

What can I expect in my Lesson?

Your instructor will create a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. We won't spend time sitting at the side of the road discussing how to drive as some, but will incorporate as much as we can into the actual driving. If you've had no experience at all we will make it nice and simple and stay away from traffic until you've developed some basic skills and confidence.
