From Monday you can continue to contact us directly and we will make the booking with transport for you. We are expecting a significant number of test bookings so please have your availability ready and key information including your licence number and test centre preference.

Ready to Book your Driving Test

Written by Ben Ward

Great news today with the announcement this morning by the QLD Premier that you will now be able to book a driving test in Queensland from the 15th June. Like you, we found out from Facebook and had no prior warning of the announcement or the planned process for getting tests started. The good news is we will work hard to make the best out of the situation to get you all sorted for your Queensland Driving Test as quickly as we can. See below for the details and the process.

Note: There is some inconsistent messaging from TMR direct to customers. Currently as a driving school we have no ability to book your test. We will communicate by email as we get updates from TMR.

We are open for lessons again !!

To our valued customers we thank you for your patience while paused to assess and respond to the broader community needs during Covid-19. We take pride in moving early to protect our team and our customers from what was an unknown risk at the time. 

With community transmission rates in Queensland decreasing, restrictions being lifted and schools re-opening for years 11 and 12, we thought this was a strong enough signal to resume our operations. Most of our team will be starting again from Friday the 8th May, with some returning in the following weeks. You can check out availability on the on the online booking system

Do you know your GIVE WAY Rules?

Written by Ben Ward

This recent post we shared from the RACQ has caused a bit of a stir!

The question associated with the post asked "Which car has to Give Way?".  The element tripping everyone up here is the presence of a STOP and a GIVE WAY sign on opposing sides. There is a general (untrue!) belief that a STOP sign is more powerful than a GIVE WAY sign in this situation. The reality is very different!
