Deciding Factors

Requirement of every new driver is different.  Decision may be based on your previous driving experience, your budget, time available and level of confidence/nervousness

Recommendation

  • One Driving Lesson - If you have been driving regularly and just want to test or refine your driving skills through a qualified driving instructor 

  • Two Driving Lessons - If you have some driving experience with your relatives/friends and basically want to learn the correct driving technique like parallel parking, hill parking etc

  • Three Driving Lessons - If you have limited driving experience but are able to drive straight on road

  • Four Driving Lessons - If you have very limited experience of driving in open ground or back alley and are able to control the steering

  • Five Driving Lessons - For novice students but also depends upon how quickly you learn

  1. If you are unclear, you may start with one driving lesson and buy more if required. Regularly the driving instructor will advise the student about scope of improvement and how many more driving lessons needed to become Safe, Confident and Responsible driver and to pass road test

  2. Generally a student learns driving in 10 to 12 hours. Students who are novice, nervous, lacks confidence, have difficulty in coordinating their actions and mind while driving WILL NEED EXTRA driving lessons to become capable drivers. Alberta transportation recommends 30-40 hours of driving practice after training to reach passing standards and become capable driver.

  3. FULL Driving Course consisting of 15 hours of driving theory and minimum 10 hours road driving lessons, gets you insurance reduction certificate. Insurance reduction is calculated by insurance company and is considerable
