Learn to drive & take the first steps towards freedom and independence.
No more relying on friends to drive you around.
No more waiting in the rain for a crowded bus.
Imagine all the cool things you can do when you learn to drive. Catch up with friends, head to the beach and even the late night trip to Maccas when you get the munchies. And YOU get to choose the music.
Driving allows you to do so many of the things you’ve always dreamed of but it also brings the responsibility of keeping yourself safe. We want you to stay safe and enjoy driving just as much as we do. That’s why we offer beginner driving lessons. Because we believe it’s important you learn to drive the right way from the very first time you get behind the wheel.
What happens in my first driving lesson?
When you jump in the car you’re going to be pretty excited and you’ll probably feel a bit nervous too. We know exactly how you feel. We take the time to make sure you are relaxed so you can enjoy all the fun new stuff you are about to learn.
It doesn’t even matter that you have never sat in the driver’s seat before. Our first time learner driving lessons start on some quiet back streets away from busy traffic and distractions so you can feel more relaxed.
Don’t worry if you make a few mistakes, that's all part of learning something new. We don’t expect you to be perfect and are ready to help if you get it a bit wrong. By the end your first lesson you’ll be wanting more and more. And because you will be so keen to drive we even give extra advice to your supervising driver so your private practice will be more productive.
With every drive you will develop new skills a lot faster because we make things easy to understand. As your skills and confidence improve your instructor will patiently guide you through more challenging situations.
You want to learn in the shortest time possible so we’ll motivate and encourage you at a pace that suits you. From your very first drive through to preparing for your test we will be there providing the support you need to achieve success.
