Strokes are terrible things; unpredictable, debilitating and life changing. That’s why I must admit that I was a little surprised when, a while ago, I received a phone call from a new client wanting refresher driving lessons after suffering a stroke. He wanted to enjoy the freedom of driving once again.

 

I was a little apprehensive about it, but after meeting Andrew for the first time, whilst he needed a walking frame I could see that he was driven to succeed no matter what. What more can I ask for in a student!

Andrew’s ‘driving therapy’ we’ll call it, took many months of slow and steady progress. Eventually, he was able to begin using his arms more and gradually was able to walk with the aid of a walking stick. Andrew felt that combined with his ongoing therapy, the driving lessons – turning the steering wheel, head checks, stopping and starting also helped him regain some his upper body movement.

I didn’t need to teach Andrew the road rules, he already knew that, but I thoroughly enjoyed helping him regain some strength and muscle memory to give him his freedom back. After his refresher lessons, he has since gone back to work and drives himself to and from to the city and back three days a week. That’s why I love what I do.

I’d like to thank Pro Am Driving Schools for their work over the past month or so. I was hospitalised for a long time and unable to drive a car for about 18 months.

It meant that I had to prove to VicRoads that I could drive again. I needed a refresher course but I needed a special person to take me out again. Because of my illness I needed someone who could impart to me the three C’s – Confidence, co-ordination (mine needed a lot of work – I knew that) and communication skills.

Tony took me out and structured the learning around my strengths and weaknesses. The refresher course focused on bringing my weaknesses up to normal. It was tailored to my requirements and developed as I went forward. Although I worked hard my instructor worked hard in fitting the learning to my needs.

Tony showed his confidence in me by structuring the learning around my needs. That was important to me. During the short term I was with the instructor I found him patient, prompt, knowledgeable and importantly flexible.

I’m happy to recommend Pro Am Driving School to anyone who wants a friendly, flexible and knowledgeable approach to driving.

Andrew
