FAQs

Left a message for an instructor to return your call?

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?

RACV Drive School instructor availability can change regularly. If the instructor you have called is not currently taking bookings, contact our drive school bookings team 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.

What will my driving test and licence cost me?

There are three costs of getting your licence:

  1. The instructor and car
  2. Taking the test
  3. Your probationary licence

The instructor and car
Book your instructor for a 45, 60 or 90-minute test lesson on the day of your test. This gives you some lesson time with the instructor beforehand, use of their car during the test and time to get home.

Taking the test
The test is in two parts, which you’ll need to book and pay directly with VicRoads:

  • Hazard perception test*
  • Practical driving test

Your probationary licence
Once you pass your test, you then need to pay for your licence with VicRoads. The cost depends on whether you are over 21 years old.
