Driver Training


I recognized that many "Driving Schools" in the industry promote free lessons or budget packages or guaranteed first time license test passes. Unlike many other industry players, I offer full 1 hour lessons with proven satisfaction. If a learner is not satisfied and hungry to continue learning after a lesson, I have not done my job.

At the end of the day, if a learner fails a driving test there is usually one primary reason: they simply were not ready.

Not ready because:
1. they became nervous in a test environment.
2. became nervous because they made a mistake in the test and didn't "put it behind" them and refocus.
3. they really didn't put the hours/time into their driving skills prior to test
4. they were taught the WRONG method of completing various manoeuvres.
5. they were encouraged sit the test before being ready.

WHY I TEACH AUTOMATIC in preference over manual!! for L2 license

Simply because legislation in the last few years in Tasmania lends itself to favoring driving an auto on L2 tests. The test does not favor either manual or automatic vehicles however, it is simply so much easier to drive an automatic car under a test situation than a manual car. There is no chance of stalling, restarting, rolling back on hills, poor gear changes. The list goes on.
By all means, if you are really good at driving a manual car and have completed a minimum of at least 30 hours of driving and you are damned competent at smooth town driving then go for your L2's in a manual.

WHY I TEACH AUTOMATIC in preference over manual for P1 license

Under a test environment things don't always go as planned. It is so much easier to pass a P1 test in an automatic car than in a manual car. A lot of focus and attention can be given to the road environment when not having to remember gear changing, particularly when performing the required manoeuvres of the P1 test.

Secondly the cost of a test is such that if a gamble of passing is based on a learners competency then financially a learner would be better off sitting an automatic license test in the P1 and then after a short time sitting a cheaper transition/addition test whereby a short driving test in a manual car is completed to add the class to the automatic license. Thirdly, the automatic car license automatically becomes an unrestricted car license after 3 years anyway in Tasmania.

I teach learner drivers in their own registered vehicles at a cheaper rate than using my own car. Learners Learn faster in a non dual controlled car. Many instructors are reluctant to do this as they percieve a higher crash risk, however, if the environment is appropriate for learning according to the conditions, this is never an issue.
