Service Questions

For most cases we will pick up and drop off students at their home / school / work whenever possible. We will gladly teach anyone near and far but those outside our boundaries (see below) will need to meet/end their lessons within the boundaries. Some exceptions may apply so check with your instructor.

A roadtest receipt is needed by each student to book a roadtest. This is done independently by the student from AccessNS at https://beta.novascotia.ca/pay-road-test-driving-test

To ensure we have an available car please let us book your test for you with your provided receipt. We will still do our best to accommodate tests already booked!
Yes! Use of the car is included in the New Driver Education Course in addition to the 10 hours.

If you book your own roadtest date then availability will depend on test location and date/time.

We have the right to deny use of car for any roadtest if we deem the student is not ready.
Mazda 3 - each equipped with dual-brake systems. All lessons must be done in one of our cars.

We understand that sometimes life gets in the way. If you need to reschedule an in-car lesson please try to give us as much notice as possible. We generally require 24 hours notice minimum so that we can fill the spot in. We are lenient but if a student repeatedly cancels without proper notice there is a potential charge of $20 for any additional late cancellations.

Our in-car lessons are taught in English
Our office hours are 8-6pm 7 days a week but vary due to lessons/classrooms with students. We return voicemails usually within 1-24 hours.

Our hours of operation for in-car driving lessons are 7 days a week. Actual times and availability will depend on various factors so contact us for more information!

Private Lessons & Roadtest Package

$70 per hour taxes included or $100 for 1.5 hours Roadtest Package is $100
We can meet/end in most of HRM most days of the week. Availability varies throughout the year. Students should have basic driving knowledge already - if a brand new driver it is strongly recommended to take our full New Driver Education Course.
If not needing the full course but needing a car for the roadtest this would be your option. Students are picked up 60 minutes prior to test to allow warmup. They must arrange a ride home from AccessNS after test. This package can only be bought by those who have been assessed by one of our instructors with at least one private lesson.
