This is where you've completed the required hours and held your learner permit for the adequate time.

The decision to learn in an automatic transmission or a manual car depends upon many factors including personal choice, skill level, confidence and the cars you are able to practice in. It is important to be aware however, if you gain your licence in an automatic vehicle; you are not permitted to drive a manual until you successfully pass a practical test in a manual vehicle.
We encourage all learners to think long term, there are limitations when learning only in an automatic vehicle. You are restricted to only driving an automatic whilst on your p1 and p2 licence, you are more in tune with your driving skills and handling of a vehicle when you learn in a manual and down the track you may be in a position where you will need to drive a manual vehicle for work or other reasons that may arise.
There are many reasons why going with a licensed instructor will automatically give you bonus points on your drive test.
- The testing officer will feel more comfortable in the vehicle knowing it has dual controls
- The testing officer automatically is aware that you have been taught the correct road rules and procedures from a qualified driving instructor
- The vehicle is in a road worthy condition
- You will be escorted to and from your drive test
- You will have someone there to support you with your nerves
- There is someone there to make sure you are incorporating everything that you have been taught in previous driving lessons.
