Lesson pricing

Lesson length varies from 60 minutes to 3 hours depending on individual needs, with a 90 minute ongoing driving lesson highly recommended.

90 minute lesson (initial driving lesson) - $123.00

A requirement for learner drivers who have not previously had a lesson with an NRMA instructor. The 90 minute lesson is designed to allow appropriate time to determine the student's knowledge, current skill and confidence level so a tailored program can be developed to suit their needs.

60 minute lesson (initial driving lesson ACT logbook) - $82.00

Suitable for Canberra customers who hold an ACT learner logbook. Choose from initial lesson right through to the final drive or simply pick up part way through when required. During this lesson the instructor will assess the student's skill level and tailor the lesson based on their individual competency needs. In additional, if the supervising driver is available the instructor will take the time to build rapport and explain our progress card and the NRMA competency rating system. This assists the supervising driver to keep track of the learner's progress and work alongside the instructor to gain best results.

150 minute licence test - $205.00

For learner drivers who are taking their Ps test with TfNSW in an NRMA car this special lesson provides time to calm your nerves with a warm up drive immediately preceding the test. Your instructor will wait while you take the test in the NRMA car and return home with you.

Conditions of booking: If booked without prior consultation with your NRMA instructor you will not be permitted to use the NRMA vehicle. See terms and conditions.
