Driving at night

Driving 20 hours of actual night hours is required for all NSW learners. These night hours must be logged in your log book in the night column. 
Remember a night hour is counted as anytime between sunset and sunrise. If you are unsure check the sunset/sunrise table for your area by searching google.
If you attend a night lesson with a driving instructor the actual hour can only be placed in the night column, a driving instructor cannot allocate 3:1 for night hours in the night column.
Difficulties when driving at night include dealing with glare from other cars headlights, both in front of you and behind. For learners it can help by starting the night lesson at dusk and gradually progressing into the darkness.
