How it works
Ideal Driving School conducts one hour lessons and training is competency based. Once the student is competent with their driver licence training a practical driving test with Queensland Transport can be booked. 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.
Lessons required to attain a licence.
On average the number of lessons for a person who has never had truck driving experience (a raw beginner) is approximately 4, plus an hour for the test. This is for the hire of the truck for one hour whilst undertaking the Queensland Transport test.
