The costs of home driver training (any risk?)

Isn’t the home training free? I thought so too! until I heard some stories from students.

Case 1. A lady was learning driving with hubby in their 4-wheel drive, lost control, hit a metal fence, luckily no one injured. They had commprehensive insurance, but the Eccess was $1300 because she was a new driver. So she thought it’s a much idea to learn from a driving school that would pay the eccess if at fault, and of course, much safer too, so she joined our school.

Case 2. A young girl was learning driving, the landlord was kind enough to offer a helping hand. so they went to liverpool from castle hill, when she could not even steer properly, and somewhere in a narrow street, she hit a parked car, so the eccess was $1300.

Case 3. This is the worst so far. Shelly had a free lesson from a friend that cost her $15,000. She steered the car incorrectly to a side, used the accelerator as break, hit a wall hard, and found out the car was not insured, so she paid for all loss…

And many other students in our school do it a very different way, join a quality driving school 1st, learn solid driving skills, get protected, and start home training later. Home training is only good, IF, we handle the risks well.
