Book your driving test in Cannington

Cannington has a Department of Transport’s Metropolitan Driver and Vehicle Services Centre (located at 1480 Albany Highway, Cannington 6107 WA). We recommend booking your tests with your local centre to ensure you’re driving on familiar roads. You must sit a theory test and get your learner’s permit before you book a lesson with an instructor who will then prepare you for your practical driving test.

We also recommend that you book a final driving lesson with Apex Driving School on the day before your practical test, giving you one last chance to go through anything you want with the instructor.

Do you have gift vouchers for Cannington driving lessons?

Yes, we do. A gift voucher for lessons with a local driving instructor is perfect for learner drivers and riders. We have vouchers to match your budget. Although vouchers don’t expire, if our prices rise then the learner just pays the difference in price if it exceeds the value of the gift voucher.

What’s your cancellation policy?

As you can imagine, it takes time to organise lessons so they run on time and on schedule. A late cancellation fee applies if you cancel without giving us at least 24 hours’ notice. No-shows incur a fee.

To avoid a cancellation fee, we ask that you make all cancellations at least 24 hours before your lesson start time.

Either cancel through the student portal or by calling our office.
