More information

  • The keys2drive lesson is designed to complement normal driving lessons, not to replace them.
  • The ideal timing for the free lesson is after you've done around 5-10 hours of driving, but it is a valuable lesson even when you are close to going for your Ps.
  • If you need to re-schedule your lesson, make sure you provide at least 24 hours notice.
