About Us

Passionate About Road Safety

Based in Hoppers Crossing and servicing Werribee, Point Cook and surrounding areas, Eclipse Driver Training was founded over a decade ago with a passion for road safety.

Having more than 35 years experience driving on local roads, our Aussie instructors were disappointed by the demise in driving standards and as parents of our own teenagers had the responsibility to provide them with the skills to manage the many hazardous situations that commonly occur on our roads. Something that seemed to be lacking from the many driving schools operating in Werribee.

Every year around 300 people are killed on Victorian roads and thousands more hospitalised with major trauma. Statistics continually tell us that new drivers who have just passed their test are at the highest risk of death and serious injuries on our roads. Why? Because to get a driver’s licence you don’t have to learn to drive in the most common situations that will kill you.

There are many good driving instructors out there who truly care about road safety, but there are way too many more that focus mainly on pushing new drivers through the testing system with little focus on managing the unpredictability of driving.

Whilst we don’t have much control over the way other drivers are being trained, we make a point of preparing all of our learners to be aware of their own imperfections as well as managing the imperfections of the driving community they are exposed to.

“Learner-Centred” Training

To help develop skills faster and gain a better understanding of safer driving we focus on a “learner-centred” approach to training. This means your training is all about YOU and how YOU can make the fastest progress while getting the best value from the time you spend with us. How do we achieve this?

Welcoming, Calm and Supportive

We are proud of the feedback from our customers who comment on how enjoyable their training is with us. Our first priority is to make sure you feel comfortable from your very first contact.

We also understand that making mistakes is a normal part of learning so we make the extra effort of staying calm and supportive even during stressful times in difficult traffic conditions.

Patricia from Truganina enjoyed our individualised approach to driving lessons

“Such a different down to earth approach in teaching”

Understanding, empathetic and overall a fun instructor to have – you will always be looking forward to his lesson and wonder where time has gone by the end of it.

Simple and Relevant

With so many different aspects, learning to drive can seem complex and intimidating.

Car control techniques

Road rules

Hazard awareness

Driver behaviour

Environmental factors

Our modern training methods break things down into easy to understand tasks helping you learn new skills faster. What can seem like an impossible goal becomes surprisingly easy with clear instructions presented in a way that best suits your individual learning style.

We love driving and we want you to love it too

By keeping things fun and engaging you enjoy your driving and make faster improvements. We even provide advice for your supervising driver to make your private practice time more productive.

Before you know it you will be confidently and (more importantly) safely driving in busy traffic with a better awareness and enjoying the freedom and independance that comes with obtaining your drivers licence.
