The student will complete the test in the same training vehicle with the Queensland Transport examiner.
Ideal Driving School conducts lessons Monday-Friday 7am-5pm and also on Saturdays from 7am. All Saturday lessons are required to be pre-paid. We suggest that students do one lesson per week or even a two hour block, depending on their availability and budget.
