At the AA, It is our main priority to ensure that our network and our customers remain safe.
Due to the time a Driving Lesson or Defensive Driving Course takes and the close proximity, our service is a close contact service. Thus you must have a valid ‘My Vaccine Pass’ to attend your booking and wear a face mask at all times.
If you do not have a valid 'My Vaccine Pass', you can contact us once we reach the Green light of the Protection Framework and we will re-schedule your booking.
Our Simulated Driving Test has been designed to prepare you for the real thing. Your instructor will guide you through the practical test and give you a report card at the end pointing out the skills you need to improve, any critical errors and immediate fail errors you might have made. NOTE: While the Simulated Driving Test is conducted in conditions very similar to what you would find on a real test, our Driving Instructors do not take you on the real test route.
It costs $134.80 to book your restricted practical test and the average pass rate is about 60%. You will improve your chances of passing if you book a Simulated Driving Test.
The restricted practical test is in 2 stages. Stage 1 is 10 minutes and has 7 assessable tasks. It determines whether you are a sufficiently skilled and safe driver to proceed to the more challenging driving tasks of Stage 2.
You are allowed 2 critical errors but only one may occur in Stage 1. One immediate fail error at any time also means you will fail the test.
It costs $109.50 to book your full licence test and the average pass rate is about 70%. Even if you have been driving on your restricted licence regularly and consider yourself a good driver, booking a Simulated Driving Test will prepare you for the test and improve your chances of passing.
If you make 2 critical errors or 1 immediate fail error at any time you will fail the test.
