"We'll show you everything you need to know to pass your test first go, from as low as $47 per hour!"

Girl Key

Imagine this. It’s a warm, sunny Friday afternoon and you’re just leaving the RTA, holding your brand new driver’s licence in your hand.

You’ve passed your driving test on the first try.

And as you climb into your car, put your hands on the wheel, slip the key into the ignition and look out the windscreen, that’s when you’ll first feel it. The freedom. It’s the weekend and now you can drive almost anywhere – any time you want.

You can drive in wet weather, heavy traffic, unfamiliar places. You can drive in any town or city, day or night.

You can reverse parallel park in traffic… Safely cross busy three- or four-lane highways… Avoid traffic tickets… Stay safe out of danger… And never have to worry about stalling your car on a hill start again.

And where will you get all this new-found confidence?

Driving lessons designed to meet your personal needs

Girl + Instructor

Driving Plus is a driving school in Sydney. We come to you – at a time and day that suits you.

We can come on the weekend, during your lunch hour, when you have a day off. We can work with you for one hour or two or more.

And the lessons are structured to meet your personal needs – and teach you everything you need to know to get your licence.

Have trouble with parking? We’ll help you fix it.

Find it tough driving in heavy traffic? We’ll help you overcome it.

Here’s how the lessons work

Once you start your driving lessons with Driving Plus, we will help you develop the skills you need to easily get your licence. In these lessons, we’ll show you everything you need to know in order to drive safely – and keep on the right side of the law.

Girl with Card

Man with keys

You’ll also learn other things you need to know to be a safe and confident driver. Such as how to merge safely into traffic if your lane ends or is blocked by an accident.

How will you learn all this?

By getting into our car and practicing your driving in different locations with Driving Plus. By that I mean we’ll take you driving in different places when we drive together. Why?

Because we’ve found it’s an effective way of getting you to remember the mechanics of good driving. Because if you can’t memorise the course, you focus on the skills. And it soon gets to the point where you drive safely and correctly without even thinking about it.

And that means if your RTA driving tester takes you to a place you’ve never been before on your driving test, you’ll have the confidence to pass – because you’ll know you have the skills to drive anywhere.

Here’s some feedback from our past students

“I successfully passed my practical driving test on my first attempt…”

“Today I successfully passed my practical driving test on my first attempt, courtesy of Julia’s instruction. Julia is a knowledgeable, professional, patient and good-humoured instructor that helped me quickly develop my confidence and skill behind the wheel. She ensured that all of my lessons were well planned and tailored to my needs. I truly appreciate the tuition Julia gave me and would recommend her as an instructor to anyone” Thanks again for your time and patience.”

Jack Bowrey

“I was set to getting a manual licence and today with the help of Eugene i achieved it.”

“I passed my P’s test today and wanted to contact you to tell you what a fantastic teacher Eugene has been. I started my journey back in January with Eugene, I was set to getting a manual licence and today with the help of Eugene i achieved it. Eugene has been a wonderful teacher, his countious patience, support and never ending encouragement was outstanding. He puts you at ease and simplifies things in what can be a very daunting situation at times. He made me believe in myself, not only just teaching me to drive but encouraging me to believe that i can do anything, he works on not only the ‘driving’ part of driving but the psychological side of driving. He has taught me to be a safe responsible driver, with good habbits. I will forever be grateful for the skills he has taught me, I would reccomend Eugene to anyone.”

Lucy Daunt

“I passed my driving test on the first go…”

“I recently migrated to Australia and needed to get my unrestricted NSW driver’s licence. Being the only family member driving it was essential to pass the driving test on the first go. After looking for suitable driving schools I chose to go with Driving Plus. Julia provided professional and focused instructions so that I could meet Australian driving standards. She has a good vehicle and was flexible with lesson schedules. End result I passed my driving test on the first go in June 2010. My wife will be learning with Julia soon and I highly recommend her to anyone. Thank you Julia.”

Sanjeev Sangar

“I would recommend her to anyone who wants to pass their P’s”

“Thanks to Julia, I finally passed my test! I failed twice, but thanks to her and all her effort to ensure I was prepared. I finally was able to drive myself around. If you’re looking for someone to teach you how to drive – how to pass – look no further as she can teach you everything you need to know. She did for me. With Julia as my instructor, I became more confident with each lesson, she is a lovely person and I would recommend her to anyone who wants to pass their P’s test!”

“I was able to easily pass my driving test on my first attempt”

“After having failed my “P” Driving test on my own, I was in need of a driving instructor able to rebuild my confidence and teach me the relevant skills needed to pass the test. Julia Cleanthous is a vastly experienced and skilled driving instructor who was able to provide me with the expertise and encouragement to not only gain my license but also to become a competent driver. With Julia’s guidance and support I was able to easily pass my driving test on my first attempt with her as my driving instructor. Julia’s calm, clear and concise approach to teaching is a testament to her years of experience and I would have no qualms in recommending her to any new drivers aspiring to gain their license and independence!.”

Stephen C.

“…she taught me all I needed to know to pass my driving test first time.”

“I passed my driving test this January and I want to give a big and grateful thank you to Julia from Driving Plus. My L’s were mere weeks from running out and I was well behind on my hours and driving skills. I had used other driving instructors and none made me calmer and more productive as a driver than Julia. In a comfortable and safe environment she taught me all I needed to know to pass my driving test first time. In a couple of weeks I turned from a stressed and unskilled driver into someone who is confident and comfortable in her driving. No one works as hard as her, thanks again Julia.”

Hayley Rollason

Natalie Stepanian

“I am happy to say that I passed the ‘P’ test first go…”

“Julia from ‘Driving Plus’ was extremely patient, well experienced and friendly. I would recommend her to anyone who is nervous or unsure in their driving skills to start learning with Julia. Even if, like me, you had already been driving, she was exceptionally good at developing my driving skills and helping me to become a safe driver. Julia was easy to communicate with and quick to notify and rectify any problems I had. Being a very experienced instructor she made sure that I could do each skill, like reverse parking, properly and safely. Unlike some driving instructors, Julia took me to a variety of places to practice driving and she was quite flexible with her bookings. She also ensured that I fully understood what was required in the ‘P’ driving test, so that I was prepared for it. She was with me on the day of the ‘P’ test, as I had booked a lesson beforehand. This was extremely useful as she helped calm my nerves and guide me through the procedures. I am happy to say that I passed the ‘P’ test first go, and could not have done it without Julia’s help.”

Anita Sundaram

“…I was able to successfully pass the driving test on my first attempt.”

Ms Irawati Banhatti

“Within one month I was able to sit the test and pass it on the first attempt.”

“I approached Julia just recently getting my driving license. I was very scared of driving in Sydney and needed to build up my confidence. Thanks to her flexibility I was able to plan lessons according to my schedule. As I was quite far in pregnancy she was very helpful to give me as many lessons as possible in a very short period of time. Her priority was safe driving for me and all the other on the road. She put my in many situations what could happen on the road which I hadn’t even thought about. Within one month I was able to sit the test and pass it on the first attempt. Julia’s devotion and professional approach helped me to gain a confidence behind the wheel. I would not hesitate in recommending Julia for anyone who wishes to lean how to drive and get over city driving frustration.”

Janette Fowler

“…punctual and willing to accommodate to my schedule.”

“I would like to thank Julia for her patience and diligence during the period she was my driving instructor. She was always correcting my mistakes and encouraging me to continue improving my driving skills. She was also very punctual and willing to accommodate to my schedule and was very helpful when I wanted to book my driving test. I strongly recommend Julia to those who think they are far from getting the driving license because she taught me otherwise. If you want to contact me, my mobile number is 0400 172 828. ”

She tends to find ways of explanation, which is more effective, and ways, which I would understand, better. She takes things one at a time and moves in to other areas once I am reasonably comfortable. I was put in to test every day on the areas I was taught on earlier days. Overall I would recommend her for anyone as a very good driving instructor especially with nervous students.”

His sense of humour was a welcome distraction and his faith in my ability was just as important. I wanted to let you know about my experience as I thought the feedback might be useful.
I now have my license and have your team and especially Eugene to thank for it.”

Julie Dowse

“Nadine had a wonderful time…”

“Nadine had a wonderful time and learnt a fair bit from Julia. I am so proud that she drove on busy roads with Julia and Julia had the confidence to take her there. I am so happy. Looking forward to the next few lessons. Thank you once again.”
