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.

60-180 minute lesson - $69.00 per hour

For learner drivers who have already had an initial driving lesson with an NRMA instructor. Ongoing lesson duration can vary in length depending on lesson outcome requirements. Longer sessions can also assist in managing busy schedules. Your instructor can best advise on your individual requirements. All lessons regardless of duration are structured and tailored to suit individual needs.

150 minute licence test - $172.50

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.
