Left a message for an instructor to return your call?

Our instructors are regularly on the roads teaching and may not be able to respond to your call immediately. If your call is directed to voicemail, leave a brief message for the driving instructor – your name and contact phone number, and the instructor will return your call on the same business day.

If you have left a message for an instructor after hours, the call will be returned the following business day.

You've selected an instructor but they are not available?

During peak periods such as school holidays, unfortuantley our drivers may have wait times of up to 2-3 weeks. RACV Drive School instructor availability can change regularly. If the instructor you have called is not currently taking bookings, you can use the find an instructor tool on our website to find an alternative or contact our call centre on 1300 788 229 and we will put an available instructor in your area in touch with you, or place you on a waiting list. An instructor listed on this website does not guarantee availability. 

When should I book my driving lesson?

We recommend booking professional driving lessons at the beginning of your driving journey to ensure you are learning and developing the best road safety techniques from the start.

As one of the Victoria’s largest driving schools our instructors can have wait times of up to 2-3 weeks during peak periods. We recommend booking a few weeks in advance for best availability.

Can I take an RACV driving instructor on my test?

Yes, you can take your RACV instructors and their car on the day of your test. Instructors will not be allowed to communicate with you during the test or have any control over the vehicle.

You can book your instructor for a 45, 60 or 90-minute warm up lesson on the day of your test if you would like to complete your probationary drive test with them. This gives you some lesson time with the instructor beforehand, use of their car during the test and time to get home. The duration of your probationary licence test may vary. Please discuss instructor availability prior to booking with VicRoads.

If you opt not to use a professional instructor and to take your personal vehicle please ensure it meets VicRoads requirements.     

How long is a driving test?

The duration of the VicRoads driving test may vary, however is broken up into 3 sections:

-          Pre-drive check
-          On-road driving – stage one
-          On-road driving – stage two

Stage one will take approximately 10 minutes to complete and focuses on driving in less challenging conditions and will include a low-speed parking manoeuvre; reverse parallel park or three-point turn.

Stage two will take approximately 20 minutes to complete and focuses on assessing your ability to safely execute normal driving tasks in busier traffic conditions.

Visit VicRoads for more information.

How can I complete my driving test in a short time?

To give yourself the best chance of passing your drive test first time we recommend taking at least 1 or 2 lessons with a professional instructor prior to your test day. This will give you a chance to test out and develop your skills before going for your probationary licence.

If you need an instructor at short notice, please contact our friendly call centre on 1300 788 229 between the hours of 8am – 6pm Monday to Friday and we will attempt to accommodate your request. Please note instructor’s availability may vary and may not be able to accommodate your request at short notice. It is best to discuss instructor availability with them prior to booking your test with VicRoads.
