What is a hook turn?

Written by Sean B.

When you attend the best driving school Melbourne has to offer, you’ll learn a range of driving techniques, including the U-turn and the Hook Turn.

At Prestige Driving School, we’ll teach you how to perform the best hook turn Melbourne has ever seen! Let’s take a look at how to do it:

Speed limits in Australia - What you need to know

Written by Sean B.

Throughout the Commonwealth of Australia, speed limits range from 5 kilometres per hour (KPH) to 130 K.P.H.  In the Northern Territories, 4 highways have speed limits of 130 K.P.H.

Speed limits in Australia (and everywhere else in the world for that matter) are generally geared towards specific areas or for specific functions.  For example, driving past schools, public swimming pools or other places where there may be a higher concentration of younger (or older) people will often attract a reduced speed limit, whereas highways and open roads where there is relatively minimal risk could see the limit increase to as much as 130 K.P.H. as explained above.

Why Driving Instructor Reviews Matter

Written by Sean B.

As a student ready to learn to drive, you need to have confidence in your driving instructor and the driving school they represent. They should be looking to offer the best possible service to you, which involves having impeccable reviews that allow you to feel more secure. Looking for the best driving instructor Sydney has to offer takes time, which means that they need to be able to stand out for you. With positive reviews from other customers, driving instructors feel more legitimate and trustworthy.

RESTRICTIONS FOR L AND P PLATE DRIVERS

Written by Sean B.

As L  and P  platers are still developing their driving abilities, they have different restrictions to other more experienced drivers.

It’s important that you understand these restrictions so you don’t get fined or worse, lose your licence.

A reminder of some driver restrictions

  • P1  drivers will have their licence suspended for at least 3 months for ANY  speeding offence.
    Penalty: The minimum is 4 demerit points, a fine and 3 month licence suspension.
  • ALL  mobile phone use is banned for Learner and  P1  drivers – this applies to all use, including hands-free sets and phones set to speaker.
    Penalty: 4 demerit points and a fine. Double demerit points apply to mobile phone offences during all holiday periods such as long weekends, Christmas, New Year and Easter.
    From 1 December 2016, P2  licence holders will no longer be permitted to use a mobile phone at all while driving or riding. P2  licence holders will have the same restrictions as Learner  and P1  licence holders.
  • P1  drivers under the age of 25 can only carry 1 passenger under the age of 21 between 11pm and 5am (there are some exemptions).
    Penalty: 3 demerit points and a fine.
  • L  and P  plates have to be attached to the OUTSIDE of the car – you can’t stick the plates on the inside of your window any more.
    Penalty: 2 demerit points and a fine.

You may think you’re being punished for the behaviour of a handful of hoons, but take a look at the stats.
