Introduction to your training

At Top Instructor Driving School, your training will be complete before the day of your practical driving test. You, the learner driver will be trained in a vehicle with a dual controlled braking system. This not only provides a back-up safety feature to the client and the instructor but also to your fellow road users.

The dual controlled braking system allows us to provide Freeway training and teaches the student to how to cope with the current driving situation on the South African roads. If for some reason we were unable to provide Freeway training during your lessons, a Freeway training lesson will be offered to you after you obtained your driving licence, at our expense.

Driving lessons will be two (2) hours long per driving lesson; as a one (1) hour lesson is a waste of your money and time. Your driving lesson begin when you are behind the steering wheel and driving, not the Instructor. You pay for two (2) hours and you will drive for two (2) hours.

Although package deals are offered, we do not recommend these deals, because if the client not is not satisfied with the level of service offered, the fees will not be returned as is custom with all Driving Schools.

We do not provide second-rate training, meaning that on the day of your practical driving test you will be a skilled, competent road user and not a learner driver anymore. We will not force you nor trick you into make a practical driving test booking if you, the learner is not trained up Top Instructor’s thorough, meticulous standards as set out in the K53 manual. We will make sure that at the time of you driving test, you will be test ready!

It has happened in the past that bookings for appointments could not be made for reasons beyond our control. Should this occur, Top Instructor Driving School will not be held responsible as specific service was rendered as intended.

We strongly recommend a last finishing lesson of two (2) hours on the day of your practical driving test. This lesson places the client in the correct frame of mind for the practical test. The fees involved on the day of the test include the use of the training vehicle.
