Frequently Asked Questions

First, you must complete the Overseas License Check Tool. Based on the results of the license check, you’ll have the option to book driving lessons directly through Driverli.

You can choose from a range of driving packages to suit your needs. This can be anywhere from 5 to 10 hours or more worth of driving lessons.

You also have the freedom to make special requests. Such as whether you would prefer a female driving instructor, if you’re an anxious driver, or you need someone who can speak your native language other than English.

From there, you’re matched with a local and top-rated instructor that best suits your level of experience and requirements.

Depending on your country of origin, and how much experience you have driving on the left side of the road, you may need anywhere from 3 to 10 hours of driving lessons with a professional instructor.

In most cases, we recommend you book a 5 hour package through Driverli. This will give your driving instructor enough time to assess your current driving ability, correct any false driving techniques, and make sure you understand the local road rules before you take a driving test.

By using Driverli, you’re matched with top-instructors who speak your native language. This way, you will be able to learn the local road rules quicker, and boost your odds of passing your driving test on the first try.

Absolutely! When you purchase a package with us, you will be asked to enter your native language. You will then have the choice to request only instructors who speak the same language as you do.


When you find a suitable instructor in your area, you can decide where the instructor picks you up and drops you off. This can be either at home or another location such as your school, work, or anywhere else. Just make sure that each destination is within your instructors’ area first.

You pay directly online through Driverli. We take card payments directly for all lesson bookings, so you don’t have to worry about payments to your instructor or bringing cash to lessons


Relax. You’re covered by our exclusive Perfect Match Guarantee. If you’re not happy after your first driving lesson, we can give you either: a free rematch with another instructor, or a full refund.
