Driving Lesson Info

“My lessons with Howard helped to really improve my confidence and skill – not only am I a more confident driver but I’m a more skilled and educated one at that!”

Lesson times and days

Lessons (in 1 hour blocks) are available between 8.30 am and 5.30 pm Monday – Saturday.

Area covered

Wellington South to Mana and Lower Hutt. I offer a door to door service at no extra cost.

How many lessons do I need?

Each lesson is approximately 1 hour long. For a complete beginner I suggest between 7-12 lessons to get to licence standard. Learner drivers also need to practice for 2-4 hours between lessons.
