Young Drivers

Getting your licence is an exciting time. Let us help with safety tips, driving lessons and hints on buying your first car.

    Ready for the road

    Texting while driving is a growing trend among drivers of all ages. It is one of the leading distractions causing crashes and fatalities. Worldwide.

    Our education session ‘Ready for the Road’, is suitable for students in grades 10, 11 or 12. The first part of the session is an interactive talk. Students learn about getting a licence and get some handy tips about driving. They’ll also look at some confronting facts and coping strategies. If the school has facilities on-site, we can also offer a practical session. This involves one of our dual-controlled cars with a qualified driver trainer.

    Driving lesson packages

    We offer a range of different packages to suit your needs and budget.

    Owning your first car

    Owning your first car is a big decision, so it’s important to not rush. Remember, the first impression is not always everything.

    Car safety

    So, the car suits your need. It’s in your price range and has a great service history. The most important question you need to ask when buying a car is, how safe is it? It’s essential that the car offers you good protection in the event of a crash. ANCAP (Australasian New Car Assessment Program) conducts independent crash tests and safety assessments. Most vehicles on Australian roads have been assessed and assigned a star rating (one star being the worst and five star being the safest). With some really easy research, you can choose a safe car over others, even if you’re looking at a used car. Get your ANCAP car rating.

    The right car for you

    When sitting in a car, set everything up as you would if you were about to take a long drive. Make sure you feel comfortable. Check it has the features you need. Will you need bigger boot space or do you need a smaller car that is easy to park?

    Check the facts

    The car's service history tells you if there has been anything mechanically wrong with the car in the past. We can give it a once-over as well, to check if everything is working. Knowing what repairs are necessary will help you negotiate with the seller for a better deal. Check out our Vehicle Inspections page for information and prices.
