Our friendly and patient driving instructors are highly experienced, professional and GPA accredited and will take you through the entire licensing process hassle free.  Our driving school instructors all have well established reputations and we promise to be there for you every step of the way.  We love what we do and have a huge passion for young driver training!

Services are offered 7 days a week, by appointment only.  Students are fetched from and returned to home, school or work at no extra cost.  We come to you!

We Offer:

  • Professional and comprehensive K53 Learner’s and Driver’s License training and related services.
  • Driving lessons facilitated by GPA accredited, professional, patient and highly experienced driving instructors with up-to-date instructor certificates and solid training backgrounds.
  • More than 20 years first-hand experience in the driving school industry.
  • Reliable service and 100% corruption free status!
  • Fully insured and dual-controlled training vehicles to ensure a safe training environment for driving lessons.

Not only do we facilitate the process of procuring your South African Learner’s License and Driver’s License, we go beyond licensing!  Our aim is to create informed, competent, confident and defensive drivers!  Remember that crash courses do NOT create good drivers!

We know how frustrating it can be to find the correct driving school.  Driving lessons are quite expensive and it can be a costly exercise if you end up with the wrong driving instructor.  Rest assured that, with us, you’re in professional hands!  We’ve been actively involved in the driving school industry for over 20 years, equipping us with a solid background in K53 driving instruction for light motor vehicles and all aspects concerned.

Have a look at our Training Philosophy!

We are owner instructors which enable us to guarantee our clients the best service at all times and to provide them with the highest standard of training throughout.  Our instructors are GPA registered, qualified, highly experienced and hold valid Instructor Certificates which are renewed annually.

Over the years we’ve developed various techniques in assisting applicants to look beyond the huge and sometimes overwhelming problems that the driver’s license test represents and enable and empower them to stay focused and motivated.  However, it’s our first concern to equip our students with the necessary skills to become informed, competent, confident and defensive drivers.  With so many inexperienced and inadequate drivers on the road, proper driver training is crucial!  In order to survive, someone in the equation HAS to be an adept driver.  Let that someone be you!

Training is done in English or Afrikaans, on a one-student-one-instructor basis and facilitated 7 days a week by our very patient driving instructors.

Driving School training vehicles are dual controlled (clutch and brake on passenger side) and fully ensured for learner drivers, which ensures a safe training environment when doing driving lessons on public roads.

We make use of various training grounds (parking practice yards) around Johannesburg, which are simulations of testing stations (DLTC’s).  This enables our clients to be thoroughly prepared to test at any station.  At these parking yards clients are tutored on the yard maneuvers they are required to perform on the driving license test i.e. pretrip inspection, alley docking, parallel parking, 3-point turn and incline start.
