What Makes us the Outstanding Driving School in Carrum Downs?
1. Pass Your Test First Go!
At READY 2 GO, we know exactly what to expect from a driving test. As part of our methodology, we offer every student a mock test on official VicRoads routes so they’ll know exactly what to expect, too!
With READY 2 GO, students will learn:
- Road rules
- Defensive driving skills
- Hazard perception
- Vehicle control and safety
- Road craft
We’ll also provide ongoing progress updates and sound, honest advice.

2. Packages & Pricing
We offer a combination of one-hour driving lessons and packages, all at realistic and affordable prices. Each single one-hour lesson is priced at $70. Alternatively, your can view our pricing page here or call us to discuss our range of packages and highly competitive test fees.
At READY 2 GO, we understand that learning to drive can be an expensive undertaking, so let’s work together to build a program that suits your budget.
3. Personalised Lessons
We come highly recommended, thanks to our commitment to developing personalised lessons to suit each student’s specific needs and experience. What’s more, we strive to make every lesson an enjoyable one!
READY 2 GO has a solution for people of all ages and experience levels … whether you’re a young or mature first-time learner, or a licence holder who could benefit from a refresher course for skill enhancement, we will develop the right program for you.
4. Expert Supervision
Under the expert supervision of an accredited, professional instructor, the READY 2 GO learning experience is the most effective way to turn your Ls into Ps, improve your existing driving skills and learn the very best motoring habits!
At READY 2 GO, we are committed to teaching our students everything they need to know when it comes to the art of motoring. This doesn’t just mean passing their licence tests, but also leaving them with driving competency skills that will last a lifetime.
5. Automatic and manual vehicles
With automatic and manual options available, students can even choose to experience a combination of both, and take the time to decide which type of vehicle they feel most confident driving.
Each student will learn in a comfortable, safe and clean car, equipped with dual controls to ensure maximum safety.
Of course, supervision from family and friends can be incredibly helpful in reaching the 120 driving hours required to sit a test. However, this alone will usually not give a learner the best chance of either passing their test or becoming a competent driver.
6. Over 100 Successful Students!
With an enviable pass rate, READY 2 GO is incredibly proud that, since 2012, we have helped over 100 students successfully obtain their licences.
While we are primarily available from Monday to Saturday, between 7am and 7pm, night-time driving lessons can also be arranged to help students master the specific challenges associated with driving in the dark.

Common Errors We Help You Avoid During a Driving Test
During your test, the officer will be keeping an eye out for what are known as critical errors and immediate termination errors.
Critical errors arise when you make a decision during your test with the potential to create an unsafe situation, but that is not considered to pose an immediate threat. A student must not make more than two critical errors throughout the course of the test.
Some examples of a critical error might include:
- driving too slowly
- blocking a pedestrian from crossing
- a failure to look or signal, as long as pedestrians or other road users are not put in danger
- stalling the vehicle
- allowing a wheel to make contact with the kerb when parking
- a failure to stop completely at a stop sign, as long as pedestrians or other road users are not put in danger
Where immediate termination errors occur you will be deemed immediately unsuccessful and your test will be terminated. These usually only happen if your driving puts yourself or other road users and pedestrians at risk.
Some examples of an immediate termination error might include:
- failure to signal, give way or check for cars and pedestrians, resulting in another road user having to take action to avoid a collision
- mounting the kerb while driving
- collision with another vehicle
- stopping the car in a dangerous place
- driving through a stop sign or red traffic light
- exceeding the speed limit by any amount for more than five seconds, by 5 km/h or more, or by any amount when driving in a school speed limit area
- failure to listen and respond appropriately to a direction from the officer conducting your test, or the police
- making a decision that results in your testing officer having to provide support

Frequently Asked Questions
Hidden First Field
Is there a pick-up & drop-off option?
Yes. Pick Up & Drop Off is available at Ready 2 Go. For your convenience, simply tell us where you would like to be picked up and dropped off, and we’ll make sure it happens.
Which VicRoads Centres do you test at?
Colin conducts tests at the Dromana, Frankston, Heatherton, and Dandenong VicRoads Centres.
I am a new learner. How many lessons do I need?
This can vary slightly, depending on the ability and aptitude of the learner. For somebody who has never driven before, we estimate it will take somewhere in the region of 16 to 20 lessons to get you up to test standard. If you already have some driving experience under your belt (for instance if you’ve been supervised by a family member or friend) you will probably require somewhere between eight and 12 lessons.
Can I use my own car?
The short answer is yes. Ideally you will opt to use a READY 2 GO car, as they are fitted with dual controls for added safety. However, if you have a strong reason for wanting to learn in your own vehicle, talk to us about it and we’ll consider what is possible. It’s probably worth noting that even if you do choose to use your own vehicle, the price of your lessons will remain the same.
