I see this original message is over a year old- not quite sure why it has been re-opened now.

Hi - after years of coaxing, my partner has finally agreed to start learning how to drive.

Can anybody please recommend a good driving instructor or driving school! Also does anybody know what a lesson costs these days!

Sorry this isn't EQ related at all, but just thought it'd be better to get a local opinion.

Thank you!

I have recently started taking lessons at 26 - got my learner's 8 years ago, and have sat on it since, I wasn't exactly scared of starting but knew it's not something that would come naturally at all so was always a bit nervous at the thought of it.
Anyway, Anita Corrigan at Corrigan Driving School was recommended to me, by two friends who were similar late starters. I've had two lessons so far and have found her to be a very good teacher and quite understanding. She does push me, but nothing beyond what I'm ready for.

388 8866 is the contact number I think. $60 per lesson. All the best to your partner - once they've got the first lesson over and done with it'll be a lot easier from there :)

Terry Ford if he is still teachign. is AWESOME. He's taught all my kids and they vary from know it all boys to extremely nervous girls. He is fantastic

Pick a school where you have the chance to drive both auto and manual. I found a manual impossible to start off in but after about 4 lessons in an auto
the transition was much easier and I ended up buying a manual although in bumper to bumper traffic you cant beat an auto.
