I was very nervous going into this course as I am a P Plater and was terrified about going alone and not having much previous training. Once there the staff were chilled out and had a fantastic sense of humour that constantly kept you entertained. Overall, the experience insanely exceeded my expectations and I had a blast of a day!!

As a lady driver who's driven for decades I appreciated the opportunity to check whether I am still as "switched on" as I think I am! I was pleased to hear quite a few "very goods" and "well done" from my very experienced instructors Lovable Levi and Gentleman John! I'll be back ... when it's not 36 degrees .. for Level 2 later in the year. Thanks for the opportunity and encouragement guys! Whilst our lecturer's "delivery" was somewhat "colourful" he got his point across very effectively and with humour. Well done Ian. I will be recommending the course to my 17 yo granddaughter about to get Ps and my son with a soon to be 16 yo son of his own who'll be applying for a permit. Great stuff for these young ones who don't truly realise the "weapon" they are unleashing on our roads. Bless you all for the great job you're doing. Cheers RobinJoy D.
