Driving Zone – Balaclava Driving School

Experienced Driving Instructors in Balaclava

At Driving Zone in Balaclava, our aim is to create the best, safest drivers in Melbourne and Balaclava. Driving Zone was founded in 2003. Our male & female driving instructors have logged over 200,000 training hours for our learner drivers, leading to over 7,500 tests successfully passed. Creating Balaclava’s safest drivers so that when they are ready to be out on the road on their own, our new P plate drivers are at a lower risk of a crash.

With 200,000 driver hours logged, we’ve used this experience to create one of Melbourne’s most thorough driver training programs. We help learner drivers to log sufficient hours, whilst focusing on safe driving principles – increasing driver awareness. As you’ll notice from hundreds of 5 star reviews, our professional & experienced driver trainers deliver a comprehensive program and world-class customer service.

Our team of world class instructors and nearly 20-years of industry experience means the whole team at Driving Zone are not only experienced at ensuring our learner drivers pass their test but also ensuring that they are well skilled to drive to all conditions when they are out on the road without us by their side. We create the most confident drivers.

Our driving lessons build upon the previous lessons, with our drivers learning more with each lesson. This means our learner drivers have a great base of knowledge, both to pass their driving test and then to be safe on the roads. Our experienced instructors have late-model dual control vehicles to make sure that all learners get the most from every driving lesson. Driving Zone instructors want nothing less than to create safer drivers so our students can drive home safe, every night.

Just before we get in the car with a learner our instructors will discuss the new learners goals – both overall and for each lesson. This means our trainers can put effort into planning each lesson, tailoring it to a learner’s individual goals. This means the learner driver is more likely to get value for money as they will achieve their goals and be more confident drivers.

Our driver trainers continue to improve themselves professionally to ensure that they are up to date with the modern driving and training techniques. This means that they are able to deliver the latest in driver education to our clients. We have a range of packages and options to suit every learner driver’s needs. If you can’t find an appropriate package on our website, please reach out to us to discuss your needs.

Our instructors remember the first time they drove. They know how daunting it can feel the first time you get behind the wheel in Balaclava. Their friendly demeanour and calming attitude means they will have you feeling at ease and confident in no time.

Here’s a few of the great ways we make a real difference to your experience:

At Driving Zone you get so much more than a driving instructor, you get the support and guidance you need to feel confident and free behind the wheel.
