Frequently Asked Questions

  • What are the Recommended Services for Beginner Learners with No Experience?
    We highly recommend going with our "Intro Lesson for Beginners" service. It will help build your confidence and give you the perfect experience you need to be able to get on the road safely. It is also light on your pocket so you can easily kickstart your learn to drive journey.
  • Do I Need to Provide My Own Car for Driving Lessons or Do You Provide a Vehicle?
    If you would prefer to learn in your own vehicle, you can choose to do so, provided that you are a competent driver and your vehicle is roadworthy, clean, and registered. You may also opt to use the driving instructor’s vehicle, an instructional vehicle with dual controls for added safety, at no extra cost.
  • How Many Driving Lessons Do I Need?
    After your first lesson, your driving instructor will be in the best position to assess how many driving lessons you should take, based on factors such as: • Previous driving experience, if any • Confidence level • How quickly you appear to learn and master driving techniques A New Driver If you have no driving experience at all, we recommend at least 7 to 10 hours of driving lessons with an accredited driving instructor. For less confident learners, it’s not unusual to book up to 20 hours of instruction. We all learn at different speeds, and it is important to make sure you have a handle on what you’ve been taught in your driving lessons, not just for your driver’s test, but to be a safe and competent driver. If you are a new driver but have had some driving experience – say, with a family member or friend – we recommend at least 5 to 7 hours of driving instruction to fine-tune your skills and prepare for your driving test. International Driver’s Licence Holders Most international driver’s licence holders book about 2 to 3 hours of driving instruction to prepare for the driver’s test here. Notably, there has been a high failure rate in this category, so we recommend starting with at least 3 to 5 hours of driving lessons before attempting the driving test.
  • Can I Take Refresher Driving Lessons?
    Of course! Many existing driver’s licence holders book driving lessons to refresh their skills or build up some more confidence, especially if they have spent some time not driving. We recommend about 3 to 5 hours of driving instruction in cases like this.
  • Where will My Driving Instructor Take Me to Learn to Drive?
    Your driving instructor will always seek to provide a learning environment that you are comfortable with. If you are nervous about driving or have never driven before your driving instructor is going to find somewhere quiet to assess your skills and confidence levels. Progression from quieter areas to more complex traffic is only going to occur at the pace you are comfortable with. The driving instructor at all times will consider your safety as well as their safety. If you live in a highly built up area and are concerned there are no quieter areas nearby, feel free to schedule a double driving lesson as this will provide more time to travel to a quieter area. You can discuss your preferences with your instructor after making your initial booking.
  • I Am Not Sure if I Am Ready for My Driving Test. How Can I Make Sure that I Am?
    Being confident for your driving test is the key to passing it. We have designed our "Driving Test Prep Lesson" service to help learners understand where they are at in terms of their driving test preparation. We do a formal mock driving test on the official driving test routes, work on manouvers, observations & your weak points. The instructor will also provide constructive feedback at the end of the lesson & help plan your path to achieving your driving licence.
  • Do You Offer Any Special Lessons to Prepare for the Driving Test?
    Monarch Driving School offers a driving test package for $195, which includes: • Pick-up from your chosen location • 45-minute pre-test driving lesson • Use of your instructor’s vehicle for the driving test • Drop off to your chosen location The Monarch Driving School Package is available to all new customers except those outside of our service area.
  • Can I Book Driving Lessons if I Already Have My Driver's Licence?
    This is a common enquiry and we find many people are concerned that driving instructors only provide driving lessons to learner drivers. Our driving instructors are regularly providing driving lessons to people who already have their driver's licence. The reasons for engaging a driving instructor for driving lessons are varied and can include the following: Licensed drivers who haven't regularly driven for a long time. Licensed drivers who's skills, road rules knowledge or confidence require a boost. Licensed drivers who have moved to a busier location and require a confidence boost driving in more complex traffic. Licensed drivers who want to learn to drive a manual transmission vehicle. You can book an ordinary driving lesson to refresh your driving skills. You might like to make a note of your needs and situation when prompted after booking your driving lesson.
  • Do You Offer a Free Driving Lesson?
    Eligible learners can get a free Keys2Drive lesson until 31st March 2023. After this, the Keys2Drive program will no longer be valid. At Monarch Driving School, we strive to provide the best and most affordable services to our customers. Hence, we may provide free lessons from time to time. All the information on any of our free lessons can be found under the "Current Promotions" category on the Services page.
  • Do Your Vehicles have Dual Controls?
    Yes, all driving instructors available through Monarch Driving School are required to have their vehicles equipped with dual controls for added safety regardless of the vehicle’s age, model, or transmission.
  • What are the Recommended Services for Learners with Some Experience?
    We highly recommend starting with our "Standard 1.5 Hour Driving Lesson" service to help brush up your skills or to continue your learning journey. During this initial lesson, you will understand the instructor's way of teaching and the instructor will also be able to assess your current driving skill. Based on your driving goal, the instructor will recommend a clear path of action to achieve your driving goal.
  • Can I Get the Bonus Logbook Hours if I Take Lessons from Monarch Driving School?
    Definitely. Taking structured driving lessons with Monarch Driving School lets you record 3 hours of driving experience in your logbook for every 1 hour of driving instruction, up to a maximum of 30 hours recorded for 10 hours of lessons. You can, of course, continue to take driving lessons with EzLicence instructors after you have recorded the maximum allowable bonus, but each 1 hour will equal 1 hour in your logbook. Note that if you take a driving lesson at night (i.e. between sunset and sunrise), you can only record 1 hour of night driving. The remaining 2 hours are added to your log of day driving experience hours.
