We are often asked whether we can do a "one-off test" but no driving school or driving instructor can do these tests for you. This test is also known as a "Government Test" or "Government Assessment". These "one off tests" can only be conducted by Access Canberra. (To make a test booking contact Access Canberra by calling 13 22 81 or by going to thier website). We can prepare you for your test and even take you to Access Canberra for your test on the day in one of our cars or your own car. (To book a car for your test just call our office).
The Government does not supply the car for the test so you must supply one whether it's your own car, a borrowed car or a car hired from a driving school.
The vehicle must be fully registered, clean and in a roadworthy condition, it will be checked before the test.
It must have a centre-mounted hand brake between the two front seats (not an electronic handbrake) and 'L' plates displayed on the front and rear of the vehicle (not in or on the windows).
We suggest that you use the car that you are most comfortable driving as it will allow a higher level of concentration and confidence on the day. If you wish, we can even give you lessons in your own car which can be extremely beneficial just before your test. An instructor could also meet you at Access Canberra one hour before your test and take you for a practice test as well as help tidy up any problem areas. (be sure to book this lesson well in advance by calling our office number).
If you want or need to use one of our driving school cars, an instructor would pick you up one hour before your test for a pre-test and tidy up, then you would use the car for the test. This would incur a two-hour fee. (See our pricing page).
