Q:  Is it easy to drive an automatic car then a manual?
 

A: Learning a manual car is more difficult, because there is more to learn (gear changes and use of the clutch).

A: Yes you can, but we prefer students to stay with the same instructor

 

Q: many lessons do I need to learn to drive?
 

A: The number of lessons is different for each person. We strongly recommend people to practice outside their lessons. Learning to drive is a practical experience, so the more hours you can clock up the better.

Q: Are driving lessons better at the beginning of learning to drive or towards the end?

A: We recommend to do lessons when you first learn to drive and towards to end. Even better would be to do some lessons in between as well. More practice outside the lessons is still recommended.

A: You have to hold your learners license for a minimum period of 6 months.



Q: Why do I need to practice my driving skills?

A: It is recommended to drive at least 120 hours before sitting your test. The more driving you do, the more different situations you would have dealt with.
