It depends on your situation. It is easier to learn in an automatic car, because there is no clutch or gears to worry about. This means you will most likely require fewer lessons. However if you obtain an automatic vehicle licence, you will not be licensed to drive a manual car while holding your probationary licence.
If you own an automatic car or would like to possibly obtain your licence more easily, then perhaps an automatic Licence Test is for you. You can always gain confidence in your automatic vehicle and go for your manual licence later on.

This depends on the individual. Extensive driving experience with your parents, different learning abilities, or greater confidence all impact on the number of lessons required. Our instructors tailor every lesson to the student and will let you know how you're going, but as a rule of thumb, a complete beginner can be taught to drive with between 8 and 14 lessons.
Lessons run for 60 and 45 minutes in Victoria and 60 minutes in NSW and South Australia - all beginning from a previously agreed location, usually your home or school.
Your instructor will book your licence test once he/she considers you have reached the required skill level to pass.
VicRoads and RTA charge a booking fee for each test. Once you have passed the test you must also pay the fee for a probationary licence. You can choose either a 3 year or 10 year licence in Victoria while in NSW, it is valid for 12 months.

Your parent's car is only 3 months old and they are wary of letting you drive it, or just can't find the time?
The answer is to make a compromise. It is often very difficult for young drivers to gain experience, so to encourage your parents or a trusted adult to supervise you, make a deal with the – offer to wash the car in exchange for a thirty minute lesson.
Negotiating to use the car is one of life's little challengers, but is extremely important so you can obtain the experience you need. Good negotiations usually involve a win/win situation so make sure there is something in it for your parents.
