Driving School WA
Is it easier to get an automatic licence first and then upgrade to manual?
It depends on your needs, the time you can allocate for learning to drive and the budget. Also, it takes less time to learn driving an automatic than a manual. Moreover, it varies from person to person. Coordinative ability and predispositions, such as any previous experience or motivation can play a big role. It’s best to contact us for more detailed advice.
I have an overseas driver’s licence, should I learn how to drive in Western Australia, are the road rules different?
We can find out your individual position depending on your driver’s licence country of origin. There is usually a verification process carried out by your Embassy. The next step is conditional upon their findings. That can include the legitimacy of your international licence, expiry date or any special conditions affecting your status.
Do I need a learner’s permit to upgrade my auto licence to manual?
Yes. To book a manual PDA, you will have to go to any Department of Transport office to obtain learners permit for an upgrade to C class. This cannot be done online or over the phone. Your relevant documents need to be sighted by the staff at the licensing centre. However, you can take C class-manual driving lessons without obtaining a permit.
How many driving lessons do I need?
Book a lesson! We encourage our prospective students to book an appointment with us, so we can make an assessment of your level. Let us estimate the number of driving lessons needed. Most importantly, learners who take our advice usually pass their PDA on the first attempt with us.
Is it easy to pass a driving test in Cannington?
You will have to meet the standard in order to pass a driving test. Assessors in Cannington are very friendly and they treat candidates with the utmost respect regardless of the outcome. We encourage our students to have plenty of practice, especially days leading to the driving test date. Best advice, focus on what you are doing during the PDA and plan your moves well in advance.
Which car am I going to drive in the test, do they have cars at the test center?
You are going to use the same car you practice in. If you are using our service on the day, you have a lesson beforehand. The only difference is, someone else is sitting next to you and they are not in the position to help. So, the assessors tell you what to do but not how and why. Department of Transport doesn’t own any vehicles allocated for PDA.
Are they going to take me on Freeway in the test?
No. It would be good if they do that, simply because some young drivers are hesitant about driving at high speeds due to lack of experience on freeways. We take all of our students on a freeway at some stage. There are important aspects that need to be addressed when travelling at high speed. Check our availability. We offer peak hour freeway driving lessons.
Should I practice the “Exercise left something behind” with my parents
It can be counter-effective because they might not be aware of the requirements. We strongly recommend driving with family as much as possible but limiting practice to general driving including parking. If you do, refer to the steps and routines we teach you. Also, it’s good to take written notes. It’s best to combine professional driving lessons in private lessons.
Where do I start and finish my driving lesson?
We come to you. Driving School WA provides door to door service. We are flexible with pick up and drop off point. So, if you want to start at your house and finish at school or work, that’s fine if the two locations are within a reasonable distance. Let us know in advance so we can plan our next driving lesson. Our driving courses are stress-free, structured to suit your needs. View available appointments and driving instructors ONLINE 24 Seven.
Is my first driving test free?
We charge for our services on the day of the driving assessment. When you first get your learner’s permit, if the staff member at a licensing centre advised you that the first driving test is free, it means that you don’t make additional payments to the Department of Transport unless you fail and need to book again. Driving School WA and Department of Transport have separate fees.
In the test, can I ask what’s the speed limit if I am unsure?
No. Or you can ask, but the assessor will not tell you as that would be considered as assistance. Every section in the practical driving assessment will have to be executed independently by the candidate without any assistance. So, be familiar with the area where you’re doing the PDA. Our instructors will show you the test routes because we know all the surrounding areas around Licencing Centres in Perth.
