REMEMBER - school will be back before you know it, get ahead of the crowd and grab your before and after school appointments BEFORE school returns!



Talk about hitting the ground running (driving actually!)
We are juggling lessons like clowns in a circus, to accommodate all the missed lessons and very very eager students who are desperate for lessons, in our Mini Coopers, with our amazing instructors.

Please ensure that you give us 24 hours' notice and we absolutely will do our very best to do the same, if, for any reason, our instructors are unable to do your lessons.

We are back and every single car is running hot! All lessons have been rescheduled or emails have been sent to organise new times as soon as we possibly can. Please have a think about Christmas holidays, these will book up SOLID from the end of term, we can't stress enough - get it quickly or you'll be  waiting until Feb!

As you would expect the lessons that were booked for August and September at the beginning of lockdown have been moved or rescheduled. Please check your bookings, as soon as you are able, and let us know if they aren't suitable.

We can't wait to get back on the road and start training again!


See you all soon

We have just now received the following advice from our ADI Audit Team, ACT Government:

All Learner Licences with an expiry date between 9 August 2021 and 31 January 2022 will be automatically extended for 6 months.

A letter will be sent in late September to the Learner Licence holders confirming the extension.  If they wish to obtain a replacement licence card they can do this online with no fee.  However, if they are unable to process the request online, they will need to contact Access Canberra on 13 22 81 or attend an Access Canberra Service Centre when they reopen after lockdown.

PLEASE NOTE: We will not be able to begin lessons again until after the 16th of October 2021 - as per the ACT Health Directive. 

ACT Government has decided to extend the lockdown, as I'm sure everyone is aware. Our hands are tied, and we are unable to do any lessons or courses during this period. Please note NO lessons will go ahead until we are given the green light.
Please note if you have lessons booked in this period, and would like a refund or to simply reschedule them, flick us an email, or feel free to call our office, as we are here, ready to assist.
We understand that this is a very trying time, and one that we all need to take seriously and ensure every student and also our instructors stay very safe!
We'll be back up and running as soon as it is possible.
