Lesson pricing

NRMA Safer Driving School Southern Highlands provides local customers with the same "World's Best Practice" training curriculum that is unique to all NRMA driving schools at an affordable rate.

Lesson length varies from 60 minutes to 3 hours depending on individual needs, with a 90 minute ongoing driving lesson highly recommended allowing time to review previously taught competencies and introduce new material with sufficient time to practice.

For Learner Drivers
90 minute lesson (initial driving lesson)

A requirement for learner drivers who have not previously had a lesson with an NRMA safer driving instructor. The 90 minute lesson is designed to allow appropriate time to determine the Students knowledge, current skill and confidence level so a tailored program can be developed to suit their needs.

60 - 180 minute lesson (subsequent driving lessons)

For learner drivers who have already had an initial driving lesson with an NRMA safer driving instructor. Ongoing lesson duration can vary in length depending on lesson outcome requirements. Longer sessions can also assist in managing busy schedules. Your instructor can best advise on your individual requirements. All lessons regardless of duration are structured and tailored to suit individual needs.
