Manual Car Lesson

Cairns Car School will teach you the skills and essential knowledge to not only pass your practical driving exam, but to also enjoy a lifetime of safe driving.

We specialise in making learning to drive as easy as possible, ensuring that our students are at ease and comfortable in their learning conditions.

Driving a manual car may seem a little daunting before you start, however, after a few lessons you will find driving a manual car will be both enjoyable and a breeze!  If you find a manual a little too difficult, or you have a disability that stands in the way of changing gears, we also offer automatic car lessons*.

Whether you’re learning on an automatic or on a manual car, you can expect detailed, safety-focused lessons that prepare you for the road. We’ll review road rules, hazards detection, parking, how to deal with traffic, and even weather handling!

Our trainers will pick you up from anywhere around town for your lesson and will drop you off at the completion.

Remember, each hour (up to 10 hours) with our driver trainers counts as 3 hours in your log book.
