You dont need to worry about transport to come to us for the lessons, we will pick you up and drop you off. We work weekdays from 6:30 am to 6:30 pm and on Saturdays from 8am to 3pm.

We offer the following options:

- One or two hour driving lessons; the one hour lessons are for the beginners and as you get more experienced, two hour lessons are suggested as parkings will be covered during this time.

The parking training is usually done on 2 hour sessions and remember to bring your extra R30.00 for the parking fee at the private parking areas. Please note that this fee is not payable to the driving school.
