Your First Driving Lesson

Driving Lessons are essential in building up the confidence you need when getting behind the wheel of a car. They are also important because driving lessons can help teach you the rules of the road. Studying, along with practice can make all the difference. Being on the road in a car is a huge responsibility. We ask that you never take that responsibility lightly and invest in driving lessons to improve or develop your driving skills.

Taking driving lessons and getting some practice in will help you feel more confident when driving. Getting a learners permit is your first step to becoming a legal driver. In order to get a learner permit you will need to be at least 16 years of age and pass both eyesight and multiple choice theory tests on road laws. Once you have your learner permit you can then contact a qualified driving school like Hi-Way Driving School so you can be well on your way to learning how to drive with confidence.

Why are Driving Lessons Important?

Driving in Victoria means that you will need to have a valid driver license in order to operate a motor vehicle. Most people think driving is a natural talent and that they do not have to learn it as a skill. This could not be further from the truth. Driving is a highly skilled and coordinated effort. We are here to teach you the ins and outs of learning how to drive with ease.

Another skill-set you will need to learn is identifying all of the road signs you will encounter when you drive. In addition to learning the meaning of all road signs in your learner’s manual, your driving instructor will ensure you understand important road signs and how they apply in different circumstances. In turn, you will be able to take these skills and take the driver licence test knowing that you’ve been prepared to pass.

Our instructors are patient and are there to help you every step of the way. Learning how to drive doesn’t have to be a stressful and overwhelming experience. It’s all about learning how to be comfortable behind the wheel and following the proper rules and recommendations when driving. Being empowered to learn how to drive, the right way, will help you feel confident in your skills and lead to happy motoring.

Lessons available for drivers throughout Melbourne’s Northern suburbs including Bundoora, Mill Park, Greensborough, Doreen, Watsonia, Diamond Creek and surrounding suburbs.

Choosing Between a Manual and Automatic License. 

In the state of Victoria, the type of driver’s license you obtain will impact the car you are able to drive while on a probationary license. If you choose to obtain an automatic license, you will be restricted to only driving vehicles with automatic transmission throughout your P1 and P2 license periods.  

While you are then legally able to drive a manual car once you proceed to a full license, many new drivers find the extra requirements of a manual vehicle challenging without having completed a learning period under guidance with a qualified driving instructor. 

Learning to drive in a manual car gives you the option to drive either a manual or automatic vehicle on both your probationary and full license. 

Many new drivers will choose to learn to drive an automatic because it is easier to learn and can be quicker to master. For a learner attempting to navigate traffic, road rules and varied driving conditions this can take away an additional level of complexity. While this may be easier in the short term, there are a number of reasons having a manual license will provide long term benefits and flexibility.  

The Benefits of Manual Driving Lessons 

  • Learning in a manual vehicle provides the support of a qualified driving instructor, as you learn to drive. Your instructor can provide education on driving skills as well as how to understand the function and performance of your manual car 
  • Avoid the need to upskill or pay for additional lessons once on your full license if you decide to drive a manual car 
  • Having a manual license provides more options in buying (or renting) a vehicle as well as the flexibility of being able to drive both manual and automatic cars 
  • A manual car allows more control over your driving as well as being more in tune with the performance of your vehicle 
  • A manual car can be more fuel efficient and less costly to maintain 
  • Manual drivers often feel more confident on the road due to having greater control over their vehicle
