Licenced Instructor for Class 5
Frequently Asked Questions
Everyone learns at their own pace according to their experience and abilities. It is difficult to predict the number of lessons a person may need before they are ready for the road test. We offer students the choice of a single lesson, or a special rate on three or more lessons.
A single 1 hour lesson costs $60.00. Save money when you sign up for three lessons – A Super Road Test Lesson is also offered.
The driving instructor will assess your level of driving experience and then adjust the lessons to accommodate your needs.
If you are a beginner driver, you will most likely first work on steering methods, how to properly approach a stop sign, stopping positions and how to do basic left and right turns and of course always watch for blind spots.
Next lessons would include driving in traffic, turns at intersections, lane changes, shoulder checking before lane changes and any turns.
Future lessons would include backing practice, parallel parking and three point turns. Also things like commentary driving, and longer highway drives would be included.
The simulated road test is a practice road test designed to test the same driving skill sets that would be tested during your road test.

At Auto City Driver Training. safety is our first goal! We teach that safety on the road is the most important rule in driving. Also, students come to realize that obtaining their drivers license is a privilege, not a right or something to take lightly. We teach our students to drive with focus and to always be aware of their surroundings and other road users. We go beyond just the basics of driving, allowing time for instructions to be clearly understood and making sure to keep the lessons relaxed and fun.
