Fees:  Please note that all fees charged by Access N.S. for such things as:  road test receipt documents, learners license, license upgrades from "L" to "5N" are the responsibility of the client. 

Classroom: Students should choose a course that allows them to complete all in class theory in sequence at their chosen course. It can be difficult to hold seat open for 1 or 2 make up days when we most likely have a waiting list of students who can attend the full course session.

In Car Training: Assignments to start the 10 hours of in car training usually take place within 7-10 days after (all) classroom theory has completed, and course balances have been paid. Your assigned instructor will make contact directly to start the lesson bookings. Please note : Excel does not fast track or accelerate the in car training regardless of road test eligibility.

Road Test Receipt/Document: In order to take a Provincial road test clients must purchase a road test receipt document at any office of Access N.S. This document allows you to prebook a road test by following the instructions on the road test document.This document must be presented to the examiner on test day. Students can book a road test at any Access N.S location they choose. You should however book the timing of your road test based upon the flow of the in car training lessons and preparedness. (Your instructor can discuss this with you during the in car training.)

Road Test Vehicle:Excel does not include a vehicle for road test. Only the 10 hours of in car training. Between lesson practice is a very important part of the process and will be stressed repeatedly during the 10 hours of instructor training.
