Sharpen Up Your Driving

If you are not driving correctly you may need more practice or lessons prior to your test.

These lessons will be conducted in the RMS test routes used for conducting driving tests and areas that test your decision-making ability. You need to study and practice to pass school exams so study and practice to pass your driving test.
