Wait for your instructor to contact you
The instructor assigned to you will contact you before the course begins to arrange
Driving test centres typically have a 2-3 month waiting list, but we can usually secure
a test for you within 2 weeks, and occasionally within a week. As soon as a practical
test slot becomes available we will contact you.
Arranged date and time of a test date
When we receive a test cancellation, by doing a regular search at your local driving
test centre we will book the first available cancellation off the system suitable to you
and your instructor.
Although the waiting list for a driving test can be 3 months, we can usually secure
one for you within one or two days or on the exact date we need; we can do this
efficiently by using our manual and automated checking systems.
Your instructor will send you the information of the date and time of your test at the
beginning of your course or shortly after commencement; in most cases,
cancellations are registered with short notice.
Start your driving course
You will then be ready to begin your driving course. You can enjoy the experience,
knowing you have a driving test booked at the end, with your chosen flexible
manageable repayment scheme.
The practical driving test
It is very common to find that people feel nervous before taking their driving test. If you have done your homework, practised and are fully prepared, then you will be fine.
