Find a driving instructor

When you’re learning how to drive, getting as much practice as possible will make you feel more comfortable in the drivers’ seat, and prepared for the road test. Before going for your driving test where you’ll get your red P-plates, you’ll need to complete 100 hours or equivalent of supervised practice. This will ensure you’re prepared for driving during the day, at night, and on different types of roads. You may want to speed up your 100 hours by squeezing in a few professional lessons along the way.

Did you know each hour of your first ten hours of lessons with an accredited driving instructor will count as three hours of your required 100?

RACQ approved driving schools

Once you’ve passed your written road rules test, start learning to become the safest driver possible by having lessons with a professional instructor.

When you want to start driving lessons and are looking for an accredited driving instructor, don’t assume cheapest is best. Keep the following in mind:

  • the instructor’s licence and experience
  • the length of the lessons
  • whether they follow a structured approach with defined objectives

Our network of approved driving schools helps novice drivers take the right steps towards establishing correct driving skills, knowledge and behaviour. These schools also cater for post-licence drivers.

Check out our list of RACQ approved driving schools and know you’re getting an accredited driving teacher without all the hard work.
