Frequently asked questions

Here is a list of the questions we get asked on a regular basis..

 We want you to complete the Log Book in the least number of lessons possible...but, we will not put anyone on the road who we deem to be unsafe and not competent. Firstly, it really all depends on the individual. Some students may have received extensive training from parents and friends, prior to their first Professional lesson. Others may have done very little or none at all. Some may have to re-learn techniques which may no longer be considered as meeting the required standards eg. steering, proper gear changing. Some students have a quicker learning capability than others and will obviously require less lessons. However, the Log Book will require a minimum of seven lessons to complete. Again, let me stress that this would apply only to students who have had extensive correct tuition from parents/friends. Our Instructors will usually be able to provide you with an estimate after your first lesson.

How many lessons will I need to complete the 23 competencies in the Log Book ?
  1. 1
    Can I use my own car for lessons?
    Unfortunately, due to insurance complications, it is now our policy that students must use the Instructor's vehicle.
  2. 2
    Will I be able to contact your office after hours. ?
    Our office is open from 8am to 7pm. Our policy is that someone will always be on the other end of the line between the above hours. Can't get through? Our office staff will call you back.
  3. 3
    How will I know if I will have an Accredited Instructor?
    Easy...all Road Ready Instructors are Government-trained Accredited Instructors and are able to do Log Book Tuition. Some of our Instructors are even licenced to teach in NSW.
  4. 4
    Am I fully covered by insurance?
    All cars have comprehensive insurance and are covered by Public Liability.
  5. 5
    Will I be able to change to another Instructor ?
    Yes you will be able to change at any time for any reason. Competencies already marked as "completed" will be recognized by your new Instructor.
  6. 6
    Pick up/drop off at home and dropped off at school/work?
    Of course....but, try to avoid being picked up at one side of town and being dropped off on the other side. This cuts the lesson time in half as time is wasted just traveling from pick-up to drop-off.
  7. 7
    How much notice should I give if I want to cancel a lesson due to illness eg?
    Call us ASAP if you are unable to make your appointed time. Most days our Instructors are booked out and someone else may be able to take your place if adequate notice is given.
  8. 8
    Will I be driving the car on my first lesson and not sitting in a driveway?
    Guaranteed !! You will be taught the basics, if you are a complete beginner, in a quiet area but, if you are considered to be safe by your Instructor and are confident, be ready to drive straight away!
