Pretest Driving Lessons Newcastle West

Being allowed to drive by yourself on Newcastle West roads is a privilege you will need to earn and the driving test is your opportunity to do it. And naturally, as with any test, if you understand the conditions and what to expect you can pass easily.
If your test is booked there is a lot of unknowns and fears to contend with. Fear can distract even the most experienced of drivers. So it stands to reason that we have to shine a light in the dark, eliminate the unknowns and the fear. And that is precisely what our pretest driving lessons will do.
Most driving instructors will keep giving you lessons until they ‘think’ you are ready. Often they will send you to do the test not really knowing if you will pass or not. And they do this because they do not truly understand the driving test, how you will be graded or what areas of your driving will cause you to fail. Luckily this is not how we operate. All our instructors have been trained by ex-testers so they fully understand the driving tester and what they are looking for from you on test day.
Complete your pretest training with is and not only will you fully grasp all four stages of the driving test, you'll know the possible test routes you may be brought on and you'll know exactly how the tester will speak to you and what they specifically want you to demonstrate.
