Tips for Learning to Drive in Melbourne

by EzLicence Last updated


Booking driving lessons in Melbourne is just the first step on the way to obtaining your licence. While EzLicence makes it easy to find the right instructors for you, there are plenty of other things you can do to get the best out of each lesson. 

Here are some tips for learning to drive in Melbourne.

Understand logbook requirements

In Victoria, drivers under the age of 21 need to complete 120 hours of logbook driving before they can sit their P’s test. That’s a lot of hours, and if you intend to pay for driving lessons to complete all the hours it will get very expensive. That’s why you need supervisory drivers to help you get there.

Practice, practice and practice some more

In between lessons with accredited driving instructors in Melbourne, make sure you get some practice. Family or friends can act as supervisory drivers (provided they meet the legal requirements), so they can help keep your skills sharp while you wait for the next lesson.

Refresh your knowledge of road rules

Even though you’ve passed your theory test to get your learner’s licence, you should always refresh your knowledge of the road rules in between lessons. You’ll remember that most of the questions on the test are multiple-choice, and in some cases, there is an element of luck to passing. But out on the road, you need to have a good knowledge of your obligations, so keep your knowledge up to date.

Find driving lessons that work with your schedule

Using EzLicence’s online booking system helps you find and compare local driving instructors. So, if you’re only available for lessons at certain times, you can check to make sure your preferred driving school can help you in those times. Getting your licence is important, but it shouldn’t come at the expense of your other responsibilities such as school and work.

Access Keys2drive

Keys2drive is a Government initiative that gives new drivers their first lesson for free. It’s a great way to get accustomed to driving without the initial expense. Best of all, you can bring your main supervisory driver along and they can get some tips on how to best help you learn. Everybody wins!
