Driving Lessons

World-wide studies show that it takes 350 hours of driving experience for the average person to become a good driver. The Queensland  Graduated Licensing system was implemented to ensure that new drivers undergo about 350 hours driving before they are issued with an Open Licence.

We recommend that your first few driving lessons take place in a dual control vehicle with a qualified instructor to set you on the correct path. Every hour spent with a West Moreton Driving School instructor counts as 3 hours in your logbook.
