How to Pass Your Driver’s License Test SA and Save Money!
Shopping around for a driving school is like shopping around for any other product or service. You’re looking for quality at an affordable price -- you’re also looking for results. And of course, let’s not forget, you need to get you driver’s licence once you’ve completed your lessons – right?
It’s true, there are a lot of driving schools in South Australia vying for your business, so how do you choose the right one for you and save money at the same time?
If you have been busy shopping around for the best value driving schools in South Australia, you’ve probably noticed the fees, and lesson durations vary considerably. The best value lessons generally range from $55 to $75 for a 60-minute driving lesson (as of 02/2016), with a considerable reduction if you book a 90-minute lesson and less again if you book a 2-hour lesson. Some driving schools even have an option for package discounts, so even at the affordable end, you have choice.
Bearing in mind that you tend to get what you pay for, a good price is only good if the service you’re getting delivers results, so this is worth thinking about before you rush into anything. Not all driving schools offer 90 minute or 2-hour lessons, and since this is a great way to get a discount, you should perhaps look at those who do offer these options. You will also probably notice that some schools don’t offer driving lesson package discounts. This limits the selection and pricing flexibility available to you, and without it, could cost you more in the long run.
Everyone learns at a different pace. When preparing for your driver’s licence test SA, it’s never a good idea to rush, just to save a few extra dollars. You need to be realistic about your driving ability and how quickly, or slowly you learn new skills – This is one skill you’ll need to get right for life.
If you decide to choose a driving school that has good reviews, offers a range of lesson packages that include 60 and 90-minute lessons as well as 2-hour lessons, or package discounts, you’re on the right track. Considering the price ranges mentioned in this article are already at the affordable end, it might be a good idea to go with a price at the mid to upper level in this range to ensure you’ll get the right level of service. After all, you want great instructors who understand how you learn, great service from start to finish and great results when you can flash your shiny new licence to all your family and friends.
You could take a 60-minute driving lesson to see if the school and the instructors are a good fit for you. If so, you could then take 90 minute or 2-hour lessons, or see if you can opt-in for a discounted package that will offer you great value for money as you prepare for that all-important driving test.
Unfortunately, not everyone passes their driver’s license test, and this can make the process even more costly. The good news is, the main reason for not passing a driver’s licence test is a lack of preparation, and this is entirely avoidable. If you’re committed to learning, and you have experienced, and understanding instructors on your team, along with a driving school that offers an affordable choice in lessons with quality service -- you’re well on the road to success.
