Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have dual controls?

Yes; there are pedals on my side of the car. I find that it's best for safety and it will also build your confidence too. Any driving school should have this.

What area do you cover?

I take driving lessons and assessments in Whangarei. If you live outside of this area please call me to discuss your needs.

What will you teach me?

Far more than just to pass the test. That is important but as we learn for that aspect of driving I will improve your ability as a driver.

Could you pick me up from work or school?

Yes I can do that; you can finish in a different location too as long as it is in Whangarei. We would need to discuss this at the time of booking.

Can I use your car for the test?

Yes you can. The time taken at the testing station often drags on for longer than you expect. I charge $100 for the use of the car for testing. If you have a lesson just before the test the cost total will then be $175

So you say it is an hour; some others run short of this!

Nope, not me. I offer great value and if there is a little time with form filling on our first lesson you will get that time back and more.

Can I drive my own car on a learner licence for the lesson?

No. this is because you have not yet proved yourself to be competent driving on the road yet.

Could you pick me up from work or school?

Yes I can do that; you can finish in a different location too as long as it is in Whangarei. We would need to discuss this at the time of booking.

I hate parallel parking will you help me?

Of course. It is a problem for many new drivers (and old ones too). There are some systems that I teach that will help you. No more calling for a Taxi to get to the kerb.
