I couldn't be happier with my experience at... Driving Zone. My instructor Timothy Chan was so incredibly skilled, calm, patient, caring and informative. Our lessons allowed me to learn not only how to drive but to understand how to be a safe and smart driver. He prepared me for my test at Carlton (which is no easy feat) and although it is one of the hardest routes to pass, I passed with a perfect drive first go. Each lesson is dedicated to building up your skills and the closer you get to your test date, the focus is detailed around that. So when I went for my drive test I felt slightly nervous but also quietly confident because I already knew a lot of the routes and what I needed to do to succeed. I will be forever thankful for my time with Tim and I only hope that more students get the opportunity to experience how great driving is with such an amazing instructor.read more
I took 3 lessons with Tim from driving zone... and it was really worth my time! The lessons were very informative and beneficial as well as short. Communication from here was also very reliable and I could always count on a reply at the shortest convenient time. Payment options were also very flexible. I was able to pass today on my first try :) Would definitely recommend.read more

Got my license today in 1 shot.
More than... happy so I have to write this review for anyone looking for driving instructor. Deeply recommend David Rakhlin at Driving Zone.
I had been struggling to find good instructor for years for my very first licence. Cause me on and off to get to the end. So lucky found him on Port Melbourne Fam group.
David is very kind, patient and his simple /smart ways when teaching or explaining on the road, just too easy to understand and remember - forever.
Not just an instructor, thanks for all the fun, and care that we shared made 2 hrs lessons just gone fast with relaxing and enjoyable.
Thanks again David, best driving instructor 👨🏫 No doubtsread more
I recently passed my driving test which was... a massive milestone for me. Graeme Kolmus was my driving instructor and was hands down the best instructor I've had. He really does break everything down to a system (even the dreaded parallel park) which suits anyone that prefers a rules/systems based approach to learning. I highly recommend Graeme to students of all levels and even experienced overseas drivers who are looking to get their license!read more
I took lessons with Graeme to convert my... overseas license. He is a great professional instructor who can quickly spot your strengths and weaknesses to make lessons very effective. I was also able to learn many things that improved my overall driving skills beyond the test. I can certainly recommend him for any novice or experienced driver.read more

Very easy to organise times and lessons with them and both very knowledgeable drivers (I learned a lot of things I wouldn't have without their experience and guidance).

He had extensive knowledge of the driving test routes and that paid crucial to me passing. Would highly recommend.read more
What can I say! Driving Zone is one of the... best companies I've ever had the experience of dealing with. Alex was my instructor and I honestly cannot speak highly enough of what an excellent, kind, patient and encouraging teacher he is.
Having learnt to drive later in life, I was quite anxious - but my confidence built steadily lesson after lesson. I have learnt so much that I might not have with other driving schools and am so proud that I passed my test on the first go.
A heartfelt thank you!read more
The biggest thank you to my instructor David... Rakhlin who helped me get ready for my test and to drive safely. I had had a couple instructors before but David was by far the best and clearest at giving instructions and tips, especially for my parking.

Thanks again David for making this process so smooth and stress-free! :) Would recommend to everyone!read more
