and Car for Road Test*

For the student who already has a good base of knowledge or has been practice driving for many hours or, is coming in from a different province or country where they drove regularly. 

We will teach you all you need to know to take the Provincial Road Test and provide you with a car for the test.* We suggest that you get your road test booked first with Access NS, then book with us. 

This service is $140 (incl tax) for the two-hour lesson, plus $140 (incl tax) for the one-hour warm-up lesson prior to the use of our car for the road test*.  This is a total of $280.  In most cases, we pick you up at your door, or we set a meeting point with you.
