Top Frequently Asked Questions

If you would prefer to learn in your own vehicle, you can choose to do so, provided that you are a competent driver and your vehicle is roadworthy, clean, and registered. You may also opt to use the driving instructor’s vehicle, an instructional vehicle with dual controls for added safety, at no extra cost.

At YlooDrive, we have set driving lesson prices based on our extensive research of driving schools across Australia. Prices can vary depending on the suburb where you will be picked up and your preferred transmission type (automatic or manual). Enter the information into our search tool to compare driving lesson prices.

Note that we offer discounts for learner drivers who purchase driving lesson packages.

YlooDrive offers a driving test package for $199, which includes:

• Pick-up from your chosen location

• 45-minute pre-test driving lesson

• Use of your instructor’s vehicle for the driving test

• Drop off to your chosen location

This package is available to all YlooDrive customers who have taken or who will take regular driving lessons. A few YlooDrive driving instructors do offer the driving test package as a standalone item. Find them here.

After your first lesson, your driving instructor will be in the best position to assess how many driving lessons you should take, based on factors such as:

• Previous driving experience, if any

• Confidence level

• How quickly you appear to learn and master driving techniques

If You Are a New Driver

If you have no driving experience at all, we recommend at least 7 to 10 hours of driving lessons with an accredited driving instructor. For less confident learners, it’s not unusual to book up to 20 hours of instruction. We all learn at different speeds, and it is important to make sure you have a handle on what you’ve been taught in your driving lessons, not just for your driver’s test, but to be a safe and competent driver.

If you are a new driver but have had some driving experience – say, with a family member or friend – we recommend at least 5 to 7 hours of driving instruction to fine-tune your skills and prepare for your driving test.

International Driver’s Licence Holders

Most international driver’s licence holders book about 2 to 3 hours of driving instruction to prepare for the driver’s test here. Notably, there has been a high failure rate in this category, so we recommend starting with at least 3 to 5 hours of driving lessons before attempting the driving test.


Taking structured driving lessons with an YlooDrive instructor in NSW & QLD lets you record 3 hours of driving experience in your logbook for every 1 hour of driving instruction, up to a maximum of 30 hours recorded for 10 hours of lessons. You can, of course, continue to take driving lessons with YlooDrive instructors after you have recorded the maximum allowable bonus, but each 1 hour will equal 1 hour in your logbook.

Note that if you take a driving lesson at night (i.e. between sunset and sunrise), you can only record 1 hour of night driving. The remaining 2 hours are added to your log of day driving experience hours.

If your search comes up with no results, it is because there are no driving instructors who are currently willing or able to service the area of your chosen pick-up location. Simply enter an alternate location that is convenient for you and search again.

Of course! Many existing driver’s licence holders book driving lessons to refresh their skills or build up some more confidence, especially if they have spent some time not driving. We recommend about 3 to 5 hours of driving instruction in cases like this.

Absolutely. At YlooDrive , we know that having a rapport with your driving instructor makes for a more comfortable – and therefore effective – learning experience. If you want to book a lesson with another driving instructor, just follow the same steps. From your dashboard select ‘find another instructor’ and then choose the instructor you’d like. Check their availability and book online. Take your driving lesson. It’s that simple.

Absolutely. Driving a manual transmission vehicle is becoming less and less common, but it’s not yet a “lost art”. Whether you are learning manual to be more versatile or because it’s a more engaging (and fun) drive, we recommend booking 3 to 5 hours of driving instruction to start.
