Written by Ronak Shah


While taking driving lesson, always remember to get enrolled in a good driving school. Driving schools are always a good option for a learner driver. It is important to find a good driving instructor in Sydney. This is because you may be investing a whole lot of money on this.

Make sure that the driving school and instructor is a reputed one. This will ensure better results. Instructors themselves will have to pass qualifying examinations. Another point to consider is the amount of fees that you will be required to pay in these driving schools. Most driving schools charge around $45-75 per hour. This would vary from state to state. It is generally higher in few suburbs like Bondi, Manly, Eastern Suburbs, Hornsby and Pennant Hills. It is not necessary to go for the most expensive option as this may not be the best in most cases.

Most driving schools are flexible in the sense that they pick students from their houses and drop them wherever they want. The timing sessions of these driving schools is also flexible and can vary according to your convenience. Most Sydney driving schools possess modern driving cars with modern features of 5 start ANCAP rating and full safety air bag options with the aim of providing full comfort to their students.

The area where you drive is also of importance. It is comparatively easy to get licence if you are a local resident of that suburb. For Example, it’s more comfortable to give your test in Silverwater is you are a resident of Auburn, Granville, Ermington, Rydalmere, Parramatta etc. You should also check with driving school to see which car they use. If you have a particular preference, you should mention that too and see if they can give you lessons in the car you choose.

As an additional tip, you can ask your relatives and friends where they took their licence from. If they give you a positive feedback, go ahead and enroll with the driving school. It is a basic fact that almost 50% of beginners fail in their real driving test. Therefore choosing a good instructor is very significant.

A good instructor should practice you to drive in busy suburbs of Sydney. This way, you can get better exposure while driving on roads. Road laws change every year and it is very important to get updates on road rules. Only a good instructor can update you on this.
