Astrid Lazaro

Joanne trained me to pass my PDA as I had an international license that was not valid for Australia. I went from driving automatic to manual and would like to thank Joanne for all the work and patience she has had with me. She is an excellent instructor, not only to teach you how to drive but how to be a safe driver, preparing you for the exercises/manoeuvres that will be presented in the exam. I work office hours and my schedule can be difficult sometimes, but she was always very flexible as well. Thank you so much Joanne!

Very helpful as Sonja was very calming and able to keep my stress levels down. When I'm stressed, I tense up and it makes it hard to focus, but Sonja was able to keep everything relaxed and trusted me. Her positivity and words of encouragement made me feel more comfortable and confident when driving.

Grant was great in helping me pass my test the first time. He was relaxed and calm which gave me the confidence to drive and feel comfortable. He put a plan into place - making every lesson purposeful, and making sure I learnt something new every time. He also introduced the format of the test so I was well aware of what was required before attempting it. Thanks Grant!

Emily Douglass

Bruce was an amazing instructor who had so much patience and knowledge. I've had my Automatic license for 10 years and going to a manual was a bit daunting, Bruce made the entire process smooth with a lot of humour. I felt super comfortable and would recommend anyone getting their manual license to be instructed by Bruce.

Gary is the best driving instructor I’ve come across by miles. Needed to upgrade my license to manual from automatic and he had me up to scratch in no time. Couldn’t reccomend him enough. My only issue is now that I have my manual license me and Gary can’t have any more lessons with each other! I miss the chats and laughs we had. Thank you Gaz!! All the best mate - Liam

Drew Wood

Steve G has been an excellent driving instructor for Drew and I have been very happy with the standard of lessons and the way Drew drives my car with me supervising. I can see how much trouble Steve has gone to with Drew to make sure he is a safe driver. Drew failed his test over one tiny thing he forgot. He wont fail next time. regards Carolyn Ebell (Drews Aunty)

Jo Austin is a brilliant instructor. As an older learner I was nervous, but Jo gave me the confidence and I passed my practical within 2.5 months of starting lessons with her. Even now if I get nervous out on the road, I pretend Jo is next to me and it makes me calm and feel like I’ve got this! I really can’t thank her enough and would recommend her a thousand times over.

Chriselle Castillo

I managed to get my licence after all these years, thanks to Barry. I was one of those who thought I didn’t need formal lessons, and could easily convert my foreign licence. But after a couple of tries, getting the lessons and choosing Barry is the best decision in my licence journey.

He’s a great, well rounded instructor who goes beyond the basics and ensure you are ready for your assessment. He explains things carefully and he’s got some useful tricks that helps you become a better and safer driver.

He’s very nice, accommodating and professional. I enjoyed my driving lessons with him.
