Frequently Asked Questions

Is it possible to take driving lessons in my car?

Yes, you can learn to drive in your car in Australia with a fully licensed supervisor as long it's fully insured and meets The NSW regulations for learner vehicles. Many people choose to do so for several reasons.

How many mistakes can you have on your driving test NSW?

In NSW, you are allowed to make a maximum of 15 driving mistakes during your driving test. If you exceed this limit, you may fail the test. However, it's important to note that some mistakes are considered more serious than others and may result in an immediate fail. It's best to practice driving extensively and gain confidence before taking the driving test.

How long will it take to get my license?

It depends on your ability to learn driving skills as every individual is unique. We assist you in acquiring those skills in the fastest and most practical way. On average, it takes 25 hours for a new learner to be equipped to drive safely.

What type of car will be used for the lesson?

Our fleet of cars is the most modern in the industry, and all our vehicles are less than four years old. We provide training in manual and automatic cars in all areas we serve.

What are immediate fails in driving test NSW?

In the driving test in NSW, there are some actions that result in an immediate fail, meaning that if you perform any of these actions during the test, you will automatically fail. Immediate fails include running a red light, causing a collision or near miss, speeding excessively, disobeying traffic signs or signals, driving dangerously or recklessly, and not following the examiner's instructions. It's important to be aware of these immediate fail actions and avoid them during the driving test.

What is the duration of each class?

It usually lasts for 1 hour. However, the class duration can be increased to 1.5 to 2 hours depending on the student's needs.

Where will my lessons be held?

The driving lessons start and finish at a location convenient to you. The sessions can start from your home address, school, or office as advised by you.

Are AV Driving School cars dual-controlled?

Yes, all our cars are equipped with dual controls. Our vehicles are not only fully inspected and verified by TfNSW (the Australian Transport Safety Authority) but also with 5-star safety ratings.
