The cost of sending your child to a driving school will vary depending on quite a few circumstances. Some are within your control while others are not. Read on to find out more about what influences the cost of lessons and how you can grab a bargain regardless of where you’re from.
Prices are often influenced by location and generally speaking, some areas of Australia with high population levels (such as Sydney or Melbourne) have increased competition amongst driving schools and therefore, cheaper pricing. That’s great if you live in the city but what if you don’t? Just because you live in a regional area of Australia doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll be paying top dollar for your driving lessons but you may find choice to be somewhat limited. Location can be a big influence on driving school prices but for most of us, where we live is out of our control but it won’t stop you from shopping around and comparing multiple schools.
The cost of driving tuition begins at roughly $30 per hour on the lower end all the way up to $90-$100 per lesson with larger, more established schools. You’ll find a combination of great schools with cheap prices and bad instructors with high costs all in between this. Finding an instructor who is reasonable on costs and a great teacher can be a little stressful for some people. Fortunately, all the driving schools listed on our website are reputable and great value for your money.
If you love a bargain and want to save money on your driving lessons, it doesn’t hurt to ask for a discount or a package deal. Many driving schools run promotions such as discounted lessons when purchased in bulk, first lesson free or a first pass guarantee so that if you fail, the second attempt won’t cost you anything extra. These are just of some of the ways you can reduce driving school prices for yourself, your children or anyone else who needs instruction.
With the recent popularity of services such as Facebook and Twitter, many driving schools are jumping online and getting involved in social media and running special promotions to entice customers. This includes free lessons and steep discounts. This is a great way to engage with business owners in your local area and provide feedback and leave reviews about your experiences for other people to read. Some driving schools offer competitions where all you need to do to enter is “Like” their fan page.
Driving school prices should not be the only factor when deciding which instructor you should pick but it’s hard to ignore price. Instead of opting for the cheapest, use the suggested advice above to grab yourself a bargain!
