Driving Lessons

We Are Open And Ready To Keep You Safe On The Road

Transport for NSW considers driving instructors to be an important government, public service which customers may still lawfully access. You can still learn to drive safely with our instructors.

As the roads get busier, it’s vital to safely practice all driving manoeuvres that you will need for this change in traffic conditions.

Find My Instructor

We are taking the following measures to ensure the safety of yourself and your instructor.

We would appreciate it if you could do your part too so we can create a safe environment for everyone!

Before your lesson

Your instructor will arrive 5 minutes before your lesson to disinfect the interior and exterior of the car including hand controls and door handles. They’ll also sanitise their hands to make sure EVERYTHING is squeaky clean.

When you hop in the car

You’ll use our hand sanitiser and sign a COVID-19 waiver. This is just to make sure you do not have flu-like symptoms and have not been in contact with people who’ve tested positive for the virus or returned from overseas recently.

During your lesson

We’ll practice the required distancing where appropriate. Try to avoid touching your face (sometimes we do this out of habit!). Also if you need to cough or sneeze, do so into the crook of your arm.

After your lesson

Your instructor will wipe down the interior and exterior of your car with a disinfectant wipe including all hand controls and door handles. They’ll also sanitise their hands again.

Your Instructor

If your instructor or any students are exhibiting symptoms of any sickness, all lessons are to be rescheduled for a future date. The head office and manager will be informed in these instances.

If your instructor is exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19, they are required to get tested for COVID-19 within 48 hours. They cannot attend lessons, tests or visit the head office until they have been cleared of COVID-19.

Thank You For Supporting Our Local Instructors

We are constantly monitoring the Government advice on conducting driving lessons and we are doing everything that we can to ensure that you have a safe space to practice driving to reach your driving goals.

As a small, family owned and run business it is only through your unwavering support that we can employ local instructors and their families. Your instructor has an immense positive impact on your community and the wider Australian community, as they strive to keep you and your families safe on the road.

I encourage you to support your local instructor and local businesses where it is safe to do so. One way you can do this is by purchasing a voucher or package for yourself or someone you want to keep safe on the road.

Thank you to our Trent community for your ongoing support, loyalty and patience.
