How much should I expect to pay for driving lessons and a license?

In Victoria, Australia, the cost of earning a full driver’s license includes the fees associated with:

  1. Studying for and passing the theory exam
  2. Acquiring a learner’s permit
  3. Taking driving lessons
  4. Acquiring a red P1 Probationary license
  5. Acquiring a green P2 Probationary license
  6. Acquiring a full drivers license

Insurance costs for young and inexperienced drivers can also be counted as part of the cost.

The government fees for the tests and licenses are not guaranteed to stay the same, but it’s safe to say that they could easily fall into the $300-$500 range. Driving lessons are the most variable cost. The price per hour for lessons and the number of lessons a student will require before being ready to take the practical test varies considerably. The price of driver’s lessons will range from several hundred to several thousand dollars, depending upon how many lessons are required and on the cost per hour. If a driving instructor is used a referee for the required 120 hours of driving experience, then the cost will be much higher.

Helping a teenager earn their full driver’s license will likely cost at least $1000 total, and it could easily amount to twice that. It’s good to be prepared for that very significant cost.
