WoW! I was so nervous to be behing the wheel again after a very bad experience with another driving instructor/buissness. But with Keen to Drive I felt confident, supported and trusting.

I first found Keen to Drive when I signed up for the safe drivers course which I also highly recommend but that first drive opened my eyes to see that there is in fact kind and helpful instructors...
After a very easy booking process and payment arrangement via my employment company we were off and driving that fortnight for lessons. I was nervous, apologised constantly and second guessed everything. One lesson in with Lukus and my confidence was sky high, he explained things in a way I just soaked in and understood. My second lesson was much the same, smooth, helpful and fun. My third session was with Michael and again he explained parking and little things like mirror adjustments that just made my driving many times more safer and easier.
I then went for my Ps and passed first go which I souly believe was only because I had amazing instructors that really helped and didnt just sit in on a lesson for easy money like some other driving schools can do. I highly recommend Keen to Drive and the Safe drivers course. I now feel safe and confident driving my two young children around. The level of care and wanting their students to succeed was so lovely. They really are the full package you want in a driving school.

Thanks again guys x

Testimonial The Rogers Family

Our daughter has just passed her "P's" and I have to say it was an easy process with Andrew as her instructor. She was still nervous, but Abbey was shown the confidence to drive with caution using the correct techniques needed to drive safely. Nothing was a hassle for pick up times and drops off etc. She passed with an outstanding result. I have another learner coming through soon so we'll definitely be back, I have to say we learned a few new techniques ourselves which Abbey had great pleasure in teaching us. Thank you "Keen to Drive". The Rogers Family

Michael's tip for anybody about to do the P's driving test Calming the nerves

Written by Michael Treneman

Take a deep breath, talk to the testing officer or whatever works for you and remember to take your time. Try treating the test like any other driving lesson and not think of it as a test.

Nerves affect everyone differently; we are all human including testing officers. Testing officers are not there to put you under any more pressure than you already feel. Remember the old saying "You cannot change the past" therefore if you make a mistake don't dwell on it. We know it's easier said than done, but some learners make additional mistakes because they are worrying about a minor error they made, instead of concentrating on the remainder of the test. Students who pass are confident and relaxed – or at least they appear to be confident and relaxed! If you obey the road rules and drive safely often everything else will fall into place.

Info About Getting Your Licence

Written by Michael Treneman

Guide to Log Books in NSW

When you are issued with your learner licence you will receive a Learner Driver Log Book so that you and your supervising driver(s) can record your driving experience.

You will have to log at least 120 hours of supervised driving (which includes 20 hours of night driving) before you can attempt the Driving Test to move to a provisional licence. Night driving starts from sunset of one day and ends at sunrise on the following day.

If you are transferring your interstate and overseas learner licence after 1 July 2007, you will be exempt from the 120 hours log book requirements if you pass the Driving Test.
