  • Can I use my personal car for the driving training?
    No, we do not provide training in personal cars. At Skillz2Drive Driving School, we prioritize safety and quality training for all our students. To ensure the highest level of safety during your driving lessons, we exclusively use our fleet of vehicles, which are equipped with dual controls and fully insured. This not only provides a safer learning environment but also allows our experienced instructors to intervene if necessary, helping to prevent accidents and ensuring effective instruction. Charging for our services in a client's personal car is not in line with our commitment to safety and professionalism. We are dedicated to providing the best possible training experience, and using our school's vehicles is a key part of achieving that goal.
  • I'm 18 years old, can I get my Driver License in Victoria?
    Yes, you can.

    In Victoria, obtaining a driver's license is possible for individuals as young as 18. To secure your license, VicRoads, the state's licensing authority, has specific requirements. You must complete at least 120 hours of supervised driving, with a minimum of 20 hours dedicated to night driving, to be eligible for the Drive Test.

    Path to Your License: Your journey to a full driver's license in Victoria typically involves the following steps:

    Learner Test: Start by taking the Learner Test, which evaluates your knowledge of road rules and safe driving practices.

    Hazard Perception Test: After passing the Learner Test, you'll need to pass the Hazard Perception Test, which assesses your ability to identify and respond to potential hazards on the road.

    Drive Test: Once you've successfully completed the previous steps and logged the required supervised driving hours, you can take the Drive Test. Passing this test demonstrates your practical driving skills and readiness to become a licensed driver in Victoria.

    Remember to check the VicRoads website for the most up-to-date information on licensing requirements and procedures, as these may be subject to change.
