Our beliefs

Roads are unpredictable; sometimes, situations that cause accidents are out of our control. It might be adverse weather, for instance, slippery roads or snowy, which exposes all road users to high risk. While we cannot prevent the road from getting slippery, we can prevent risky driving. Our tutors take you through risky environments to drive in and demonstrate how you can maneuver and stay safe during such adverse conditions.

We believe it is important to train you in all conditions. While theory is important in understanding why a car skids and what it takes to control the car in such a scenario, we go beyond the books and class to practical aspects of it. Our tutors spend significant time with each driving student to explain and test their skills on theories. Understanding how and why is vital; but doing it successfully is the ultimate of driving school Frankston.

Why train with us?

Our instructors take you through government rules and local administration requirements of drivers. We are renowned in the whole region because of our comprehensive programs. We take more than the 120 hours as required by VIC Roads Frankston to ensure our drivers are confident and ready for flexibility in transport.  We don’t assume people are the same, hence, driving lessons don’t have a specific limit because some are fast learners while others are slow. We respect your preference for different learning techniques and lesson time according to your work schedules.

We have partnered with professional bodies interested in road safety to equip drivers with necessary skills in driving. Discipline and positive attitude are crucial elements in our driving lessons in frankston; we focus on these two irrespective of the type of vehicle you want to drive. Negative attitude and careless driving largely contributes to road accidents across the world. Our tutors are driven by this dire need in society to save lives and reduce the stigma in society with driving.

When it comes to driving lessons, the below are the most frequently asked questions:

Study says that to master the driving classes you need at least 45 hours of learning and understanding how cars work; that transitions into around 27 hours of practising free hand. Different driving classes have different parameters of teaching driving – but it’s mostly hourly. This has been given forward by Driving and Vehicle Standards Agency – to be a reliable driver, you need at least 45+27 hours of driving. You can obviously choose to have multiple lessons in one day (say, 1-2 hours a day) or you can distribute it over the week based on your availability. The suggestion would always be to have a very good continuity with this as driving classes need continuous efforts.
For an off road driving and if you begin from the scratch, it makes sense to start from 2 hour coaching in driving – you might want to understand how these cars function and how are they different. But if you are looking to drive within the city, anywhere between 1-1.5 hours of a class is more than enough for you to understand the basics of the car and driving hacks. It all would be based on the teacher. This depends on how much you already know about cars and driving. If you did this a couple of years ago and now are only wishing to revisit the classes, a single hour of revisiting should be more than enough. But if this is completely knew, a single hour might as well be used only for theoretical training.
This completely depends on multiple factors like how novice you are with the whole coaching thing, how many hours you would be spending per day and if you would also want to have the license driving test done via the driving school. But to give an idea of how much this would cost, it costs around $360-$400 for an average of 6 driving lessons with any agency. Different driving schools charge differently based on the type of driving as well (manual or automatic driving). But in Victoria, to break it further down – it should cost you around 1 hour of automatic car driving lesson - $60 / hour. And for about 45 minutes of automatic classes, it is around $50.
Yes, it is very much possible to learn driving in just 1 month. If you are able to spend around 2.5 hour per day to learn properly in both theory and practical standpoint, you will be able to learn the driving of an automatic as well as a manual car in just 30 days. The calculation is based on what the Agency says about 45 hours of driving lessons – But here’s a catch. You will also need to put in extra hours to practice driving as well. The deal is all about how well you practice and pass the test. At the end of all the learning lie your tests – so you’d definitely want to practice thoroughly to pass the test flawlessly.
No, 40 hours of driving lessons would not be enough to make the cut to be a reliable driver in the street. Ideally according to VicRoads 120 hours would be just taken in to learn the basics to the advanced driving skills. The real game would be in practicing this on the grounds / parks / streets that would make you confident. Car driving is mostly about coordination of your muscles with your brain. To be able to drive efficiently on different scenarios – traffic, rains or uneven surfaces; you’d need thorough coordination with a lot of your muscles. That is exactly what the driving test and practice offers.
It depends on how many weeks you have to completion of the test. Ideally, the best practice would be not to give a lot of gap or slack between each driving lesson / class. The reason is very simple – You will lose touch of what was taught in the previous class because of the dynamics of a car and understanding the coordination of different muscles of your body; and you will have to start from the scratch every single time. It’ll be a clogged memory for you as well, so it is always preferred to have regular classes with touch. Having said that, you can always have a weekend class of 2-3 hours as well if you already have touch of driving – see if it suits you.
It all again depends on the trainer, examiner, the type of vehicle you are giving the test for and a lot of other factors. But to average it out, you would be giving a practical driving test for about 40 minutes. They would give you a task (probably making an 8 on a ground or something on the similar lines) and test how well your cognitive abilities function.
It’s not possible to learn driving from the scratch in just a week. Why we say this is because of the responsibility that lies on any driver to begin with. When we are on a road – we are not just responsible for our own lives, but also for others. Having said that, it is very much possible to revisit driving in a week if you already had experience of driving a few years ago; but not from the scratch.
The average cost of driving lesson would be somewhere around $50-60 depending on the hour you choose, the type of vehicle (automatic or manual) and based on how new you are to the course. There would be different packages based on the need.
If you have no experience of driving at all, the basic recommendation would be to have a minimum of 10-11 hours of driving with an instructor. This helps you understand how to function when different situations present themselves in front of you, on a road. Driving is not tricky, but is all a game of correct coordination of our muscles just enough to not be too slow or too fast on the streets. The instructor would let you know exactly where you weak points lie for you to work on, and where your strengths are even in driving.
In all true honesty, there is no minimum number of driving lessons that you can take. It all works solely based on the hours you put in learning driving and also in how far you have come already in learning driving to some extent. To give it a number would be tough a task as it works entirely based on the hours you have already put in. Minimum acceptable right now would be around 40-45 hours of just learning with 22-27 hours of practicing.
It is a preference based choice. You can choose to get your own vehicle if you want to drive the same vehicle – you can learn on the same one too. But if not, we usually always provide instructor cars with controls split equally between the learner and the instructor. This is usually on no extra cost. The driving instructor’s cars are made specially to enable smooth learning with dual controls in cases where the learner is not very confident of letting the whole control onto them.
We do have a package that covers all of what it takes to clear the driving test. This includes picking you up from any chosen location to taking you to the driving test centre. We also drop you off again back to any chosen location. What we also offer in this package is the privilege of giving the test in an instructor’s car which you already are comfortable with (in case you learnt driving lessons on this). This package is an exclusive one bolt-on the original driving classes.
Yes, you can get the bonus logbook hours for sure if you have enrolled yourself for the primary driving classes. The logbook lets you calculate 3 hours of driving experience in your logbook for every 180 min of extensive driving class taken. There are certain rules here as well when you log the driving classes. If you are taking the driving classes in the night time, only 1 hour of the night will be recorded in the logbook and 2 hours would have to be in the daytime. The rules of the logbook will be explained personally as even this is personalized based on cases.
We have our instructors and centres spread out to multiple locations all over Victoria and almost every suburb in Melbourne. If you hit search on one single area and there are no results that are fetching up, it simply means that no instructors are available at the moment in that area. You could either wait for a day or two, or you can also enter an alternative location nearby which would be convenient to you. This is all based on the traffic we get per day for learning driving on our website – hence the variation. Nevertheless, you can also call us up and verify if you think there might be any glitch in showing any results.
If you believe you know enough of driving already to not take the entire class again, here’s good news for you – you can definitely take the refresher driving class to refresh your memory about how to go about driving in busy traffic days. There are many drivers who were pretty good at driving a couple of years ago but lost touch of driving altogether. If you think you are one of them, you can definitely enrol yourself just for the refresher’s course and jog your memory up on how to start driving up again in different scenarios.
Like it’s for every teacher and a child, we completely understand the fact that you would need an absolutely flawless rapport with your instructor to even start to enjoy the driving class journey. So yes, you can always change instructor if you think you do not share any sort of rapport to enjoy the sessions and to practice stress-free. All you have to do is to let the admin know that you would want to change the instructor. There’s an option in the dashboard that goes by the name ‘Find another Instructor’ that will allow you to map yourself to another instructor in the same area.
There are more and more automatic transmission vehicles coming up in the market that is now replacing the manual ones. Having said that, we do understand that manual transmissions are a part of our roads still. So you can definitely avail the program that will let you learn driving on a manual transmission type.
The first day of the car driving class would solely focus on theory and practical lesson with more control from instructor. Do not expect to dive straight in and take control in the driver’s seat. We will provide you resources of Vicroads official driving rule book. We would spend ample amount of time in making sure you are aware of the terminologies and how to go about them in real life usage as well. We will also talk about the major functions of all these controls, parts of the car (not too in=depth), just as much you’d need to drive efficiently.
If you give enough time in practicing whatever you learn in the driving classes, you will be able to do a very good job in passing the first time driving as well. The tests are usually theory and practical. Theory should be enough of an easy task if you have already practiced enough on the practical part of driving – in understanding when to press what control and what NOT to do when you are bestowed upon some bizarre circumstances.
It is not tough to pass the driving test, provided you have enough of capabilities in practicing and even learning. As we mentioned above, you will need about 40+ hours of understanding and learning the functioning of a car and driving it in different terrains and environments. You will also need a couple of hours of heavy practicing to understand if you have enough confidence in driving the test. When all of this is done, the driving instructor will frankly let you know of how prepared you are for a driving test at VicRoads and then you are good to go.
Ideally, yes. You should practice driving almost daily to not lose touch over what you already learnt in the previous classes. If you procrastinate or not take this seriously, there is a huge chance that you would have to start everything afresh. So to make sure that you are in touch with the driving lesson and practice, you can give some time towards refreshing your memory and past lessons that already are done with. It is not mandatory as there are many people who passed the tests without having to attend classes on a daily basis / practice daily. But it is only advised to do this way around.
You cannot practically learn to drive without a car. You can only understand in theory how a car functions and what the controls are. You can also read about the function of each of these controls, but there would be little to no use of this if you wouldn’t practice in on a real car and see how well you can use your theory knowledge to practically driving a car. Car driving also involves different roads, terrains and situations. You would obviously want to understand how well your reflexes function when the real car takes in on a real challenge.
You can read the manuals again and again to make sure you do not forget the terminologies and controls that are of crucial importance to any driver. What will also strengthen your core expertise in the theory test is using these terminologies and theory in practical driving. Whenever you practice driving, make sure you are also refreshing the theory part of the learning as well.
There is no definitive answer to what would be the best way to learn to drive. But when it comes to the ideal situation, here are some ways which could help you understand driving better: - Make sure you are theoretically apt in understanding your car and the functions as well. - Be comfortable in the car you chose / your own car that you would be driving - Correct your seating position which works best for your reflexes and coordination - Avoid any distractions in the first few weeks of learning the car - Remember to turn-off whichever sign you switch on - Remember to rehearse your theory as you practice practically as well, make it holistic.
To begin practicing a car, you can choose an empty road or an open ground. Take help of an instructor as well as they would be the best judge of which terrain to start practicing your driving with. - You can start with empty places, taking circles and turns where you feel you don’t have enough control. Master the straight roads first, then turns and circles. - Understand how your coordination is functioning currently and try to master that as well - After empty places, take to mild traffic oriented roads. Take help of instructor here as well. Do not venture far into heavy traffic as this will only disrupt traffic should you get confused or panic. - The last level would be normal busy days amid traffic. Take this step only after you are very comfortable and confident in your driving.
