About Julia Cleanthous

Julia Cleanthous is not only the founder of Driving Plus; she’s also its lead instructor. She has more than 15 years experience in the field and has had the pleasure to help literally thousands of beginning drivers gain the confidence and skills they need behind the wheel to pass their licensing examinations on the first time out.

While Julia’s structured driving program is designed to help anyone learn how to drive, she does have a specialty when it comes to teaching. She excels in assisting nervous drivers and greatly enjoys helping them overcome their fears to acquire the confidence on the road necessary to pass the test the first time around.

Seeing her driving school students come out of their shells, learn the ropes and excel in their efforts is what Julia says teaching is all about. Her students agree.

Christina Aridah, one of Julia’s former students, had this to say about her teaching abilities: “Julia was my driving instructor in the years of 2000/2001. Julia’s patience allowed me to learn worthy and lasting driving practices, which carried me to finish all the required hours and receive my Provisional license on my first attempt. …She was also very friendly and (an) enjoyable teacher that created a relaxed and calm environment. This allowed me to concentrate on developing my skills while feeling at ease.”

Julia prides herself on bringing professionalism, lesson structure, expediency and thoroughness to the Driving Plus program and its students. She also insists on flexibility in scheduling so her students can learn at times which are most convenient to them.

“Julia conducted her lessons in a serious and professional manner,” said Alana Ferioli, a former student. “Well prepared for her appointments, Julia described the proceedings and objectives of each lesson at its commencement and built a rapport that kept me at ease.”

Driving Plus is more than just a driving school. Its program is designed not only to teach students the nuts and bolts to pass the driving exam on the first time out, but also to give beginning drivers the experience and confidence behind the wheel they need to be confident.
