Class AR

Short Scope:

This is an automatic transmission, 3-day program consisting of two 5-hour session booked close to your road test date, performed using a passenger van and flat bed electric brake trailer.

Full Scope:

The A Restricted program consists of 10 hours of practical training and use of our vehicle for the road test.  This training consists of road test preparation, pre-trip inspections, trailer coupling & uncoupling, backing up, city & highway driving.  We ask that you write the Class A written test at the Drivetest Centre. Once completed and all fees owed to Drivetest Centre have been paid, you will be eligible for a road test, which we will book for you. This Fast Track program is designed to teach students how to safely operate class AR vehicles and obtain the license in a short period of time.  Based on your availability, we try to bring you in for two 5-hour practical training sessions nearest to your road test date.
