Now, let’s see how much the cost of driving lessons in each of these schools is. The driving school prices might vary a bit in different location and centers but most of the fees will conform to the standard cost published by the school authorities.
Moreover, certain schools will public their fees for different types of course while others only reveal pricing list when you register directly, based on your personal needs at that time. This is easy to understand as all schools want to customize their course and pricing best to serve customers, that’s why it’s hard for them to give a fixed price in public.

What should you focus in driver’s education?
Admittedly, every knowledge item introduced in a driver’s training course is important. However, we may not have enough time and brain capacity to absorb them all, so it’s advisable that you know what to focus on.
Cramming anything they teach can make you exhausted
1. Theory part
To ensure your own safety on road and avoid any possible trouble with the police, you must pay extra attention to common traffic rules and regulations in Nigeria.
I know there are so many laws but knowing the most essential is okay, such as: required documents when driving, meanings of road safety signs and ranges of fine for violation, abandoned driving pattern or simply the speed limit for each type of routes.
You should also check out causes of traffic accidents and withdraw your own lessons.
2. Practical skills
There are 2 sets of skills I want to refer here.
The first skill set is of course driving skills. This is extremely important when it comes to unexpected scenario on road. When learning with the instructor, ask them to help promote your situational awareness to react in sudden cases. For example, imagine you’re travelling in a regular traffic flow with stable speed then suddenly the truck in front of you stops for no reason. What would you do in that situation? Wearing seat belts only can’t insure you against possible losses.
In case you’re injured because of this incident, that truck may not be responsible to pay for your treatment if it’s just broken without the driver’s awareness. What I want to mention is the essence of defensive driving program in which you learn how to avoid then react in those abrupt situations. Don’t ever underestimate your skill when you can pass the driving test easily!
Beware of unexpected situations on the road!
Whatever driving school you attend, it should not far exceed the average cost of driving school in Nigeria. Contact the school directly and ask for tiniest clarification before signing in the enrollment form.
