I am a new driver without any experience
Taking driving course(s)
Q: What time is good for my child to get his/her driver licence?
A: A person must be at least 14 years old to take the knowledge test. Class 7 licence will be issued if he/she passes the test, passes the vission screening, and has permision of parent if the person is under 18.
Once having Class 7 licence, your child is eligible to drive with supervision of a non-GDL driver, e.g. you. Teaching the teenager to drive at the very begining is not a easy job. They are likely to encounter very dangerous situations, which parents want to avoid. The best way is to have your child take few lessons with a professional instructor first. Then you can help him/her practice driving during daily life. Your child will master certain level driving skills and has accumulated experience before being eligible to take the road test. It is easier for your child to pass the test after 2 or more lessons with instructor.
Q: What time is the best for me to take the in-class sessions?
A: We recommend that you take the in-class sessions before in-vehicle lessons. This way you get enough knowledge about the safe driving. And you are well prepared for your driving lessons. However, you can select to take in-vehicle lessons first then in-class. We are going to issue the insurance reduction certificate once you finish both sessions.
Q: What will I learn from the instructor during the 10 hour training?
A: Not all students progress or learn at the same pace. Some students have received informal training before beginning their lessons. While such students may be moved through the course curriculum faster, it is necessary that they receive the same basic training as a beginner. In these cases, the curriculum would continue to be followed, but less time would need to be spent on the basics. The additional time gained would then be used to provide additional training on more advanced skills.
Other students may require more time with the basic skills before moving on to a more complex skill. For safety reason, we do not advance students beyond their capabilities. Additional lessons or lesson time may be required to meet the basic objectives, and therefore the later objectives may not be achieved within the 10 hour framework. In such cases, additional training may be recommended to the student.
