* Why use my car for road test?  Driving schools provide 10 hours of training.  Practice is something that we stress students do between each training lesson. Ensuring that you focus on the skills taught at each lesson. If students are practicing then obviously they should be far more familiar with their car than an Excel vehicle. Students who focus on practice tend to be far more confident at their road test. The course cost saving in using your own vehicle is more of an incentive to pracitce.  Either way pracitce is a necessary part of the process.

* When should I start the program? We recommend that students register for the program as soon as they have their learners license. Please take advantage of the 9 month waiting period to qualify for a road test. We do not accelarate or fast track the course regardless of road test eligibility so use the full 9 months to train. (More importantly to practice.)

* When does my in vehicle instruction begin?  Once all course balances are paid in full, those who have a learners license will be assigned to an instructor within 7-10 days after the completion of all classroom theory. (If you do not have a learners license after the classroom has been completed, please contact our office once you have it and are ready to start)

* Where do we meet for lessons? Excel does not pick up or drop off at residences or places of business. We have a predetermined location to start and end the lessons. By doing so we ensure that the full lesson is dedicated to training and not a portion of every lesson lost in transportation.

* What does the driving program include?  The full driving course includes 25 hours of classroom theory, 10 hours of in vehicle training, and the driving certificate upon completion. Using an Excel vehicle for a road test is optional.

What is a road test receipt? The road test receipt is a document that clients must purchase from Access Nova Scotia. This document has a number / letter sequence on it that allows your driving instructor to prebook a road test (provided the student is ready and has completed the full driving program .)
