Written by Ronak Shah

Learning to drive is an important rite of passage for many Australian teens. Once you’ve earned your keys, a whole world of opportunity opens up to you. As exciting as this time may be, it’s important to take the time to learn everything you need to know to be a good driver. Onroad Driving School has been in the Hurstville area for nearly a decade, and we can help you get started right.

Preparing for your first Driving Lesson in Hurstville

Maybe you've just turned 16, and you're ready to get your Learner's License. Congratulations! You are about to begin a new journey in your life. Learning to drive can be fun, and our professional trainers help manage the fears many novice drivers feel when they get behind the wheel for the first time.

You probably know already that before you can start driving, you’ll need to pass the Driver Knowledge Test at a testing location. This touch-screen based test will assess whether you know the fundamentals of the road. Be sure to brush up on the rules before you go, and you’ll likely have no problem passing this simple test.

Once you have your L-plate, you’re ready to start logging your practice hours. You’ll need a year of driving and 120 hours logged before you can get your Provisional P1 License.

Once you’re ready to get behind the wheel, you can schedule a driving lesson. We’ll come to you in Hurstville, and work at your pace to get you comfortable with driving.
