Driving Test

How National Driving helps until you pass your driving test!

Our goal is to teach our students to drive safely and to assist them in gaining their licence.

Log Book hours in NSW

Before you can attempt the driving test you must complete 120 hours in your log book. Taking 10 lesson hours = 30 hours added to your log book with one of licensed instructors.

Why use us for the Test?

The ACT and NSW Driving Test is a very important time for learner drivers because as soon as they pass they are able to "go solo" and drive on their own. This is a very big event in most young Australian's lives as it as passage to their freedom and development as a young adult.

The student can be very nervous on this day and the lesson just before the test is very important for the Instructor to prepare them both physically and emotionally by calming their nerves and preparing them for the on road test.

Some learners prefer to take the test in the family car as they have had a great many hours of familiarity with it. Others prefer to attend the test with their driving instructor and attempt the test with the instructor. Right way Driving School offers our customers a Test service that is much more than just car hire!

Our offering is a Lesson and Test service which is for 2.5 hours and includes a lesson before the test, instructor presenting the student for the test, use of our car for the test, debriefing and return to home at the end of the test.

There are some very real benefits of our service including:

  • Higher pass rates when the test is attempted in a driving instructors car
  • The pre-test lesson time allows the instructor to calm, prepare and build confidence in the student just before the test
  • The Driving Examiner will not conduct the test if in their opinion the vehicle is not roadworthy

Our recommendation is that the student should take at least one lesson before the test. We are happy for this lesson to be a Keys2Drive Lesson (free to the student) if they qualify, and the focus can be The P Plate Ready Indicator program. 

Who books and pays for the driving test?
