Can I take driving lessons in my own car?

Updated about 1 month ago

Our driving instructors are happy to provide driving lessons in your own vehicle as long as they feel safe & your vehicle meets certain conditions.

Learning in your own vehicle is likely to be supported by your instructor if:

  • You are a confident & experienced learner driver about to take a driving test
  • You are an experienced driver on a provisional or unrestricted licence
  • You have a new car to familiarise yourself with
  • You have driven extensively overseas & are confident on Australian roads

Learning in your own car is not suitable for inexperienced or new learner drivers.

Your car must be registered, roadworthy, comprehensively insured & clean. Our instructors reserve the right to refuse instruction in your car if they believe your driving skills or vehicle condition are a safety risk.

The instructor may wish to conduct one or more lessons in their own vehicle prior to providing lessons in your vehicle.

The price of a lesson in your own car is the same as the price of a lesson in your instructor's car. To learn in your own car, simply add a lesson note or call your instructor after confirming your booking.
