I’ve been a driving instructor for many years now and have seen many people come and go. From youngsters getting in the driver’s seat for the first time to hearing impaired – they all have a story to tell. So over the next few months I’m going to share some short stories of clients I’ve helped that have impressed and inspired me. I hope you enjoy.

Developing more than his driving skill

A few years ago I received a phone call from a nervous and worried mother. Her son had just turned 17 and needed some formal driving lessons. It’s not unusual for a parent to be apprehensive at their child’s first foray into driving, but this wonderful mother wasn’t worried about learning to give way, left before right or survive the ‘five ways’ roundabout in Mooroolbark – she was worried that he was worried that he was so shy and quiet that he might not have the courage to succeed.

It took a few lessons but slowly this quiet young man opened up, gained confidence and started to enjoy himself. What I loved most about my experience with this young man was that as he slowly came out of his shell his mother saw positive changes at home too. On the eve of his licence test I received a call from his very proud mother and in her words her son had become ‘cool, calm and fun to be around’, passing the test would be a bonus to the transformed young man he had become.

One very successful licence test later and this youngster had changed his life with just a little guidance along the way.

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.
