There is no requirement for anyone to use a driving school before they go for their road test. However, how many lessons you need will depend on your previous driving experience, driving habits, your confidence and aptitude for learning to drive. Everyone learns at different speeds. A one-on-one driving lesson with us will provide you with immediate feedback, and recommendations for future lessons.
Unfortunately not. We only can provide lessons to valid Class 5 license holder.
Anyone can improve their driving at any time. You could have your full privilege license (Class 5)- a driving instructor can help you learn certain maneuvers you may be struggling with and provide you with skills to be a safe and defensive driver. New drivers with a learner’s license (Class 5L) - MPI recommends you have at least 45-hours of driving experience or practise before your Class 5L road test. We highly recommend a new driver to start taking their lessons upon receiving their learner's license (Class 5L). A few lessons in the early stages will provide you with a good idea of what you should work towards over the next year with your co-pilot. Drivers with more driving experience may want a couple of lessons before their road test to improve their driving skills, learn maneuvers they may need to know for their road test and work on driving habits that may require some attention.
