Driving Zone – Driving School in Newport

Experienced Driving Instructors in Newport

At Driving Zone in Newport, our mission is to create the safest drivers in Melbourne and Newport. Driving Zone was founded in 2003. Our male & female driving instructors have logged over two hundred thousand training hours for our learner drivers, leading to over 7500 tests successfully passed. We create safe drivers so that when they are ready to be out on the road on their own, our drivers are at a lower risk of a collision.

With well over 200,000 driver hours logged, we’ve used this experience to create one of Melbourne’s most comprehensive driver training programs. We help learner drivers log sufficient hours, whilst concentrating 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 world class instructors and nearly 20 years in the industry mean that the team at Driving Zone are not just experienced at ensuring our learner drivers pass their test but also ensuring that they are well skilled to drive to all road conditions when they are out on the road without their instructor by their side. We create Newport’s most confident drivers.

Our driver training lessons build on each other, with our drivers learning more and more with each lesson. This means that our learner drivers have a great knowledge base, both to pass their driving test and then to be safe out on Victorian roads. Our passionate instructors do have access to late model vehicles to ensure that learners get the most from every lesson. Our instructors want to create safer and more experienced drivers so our students can drive home safe, every night.

Before getting in the car with a new learner our instructors will discuss the new learners goals – overall and for each lesson. This is so our instructors 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 drivers go through continuous professional development which insures they remain up-to-date with the modern driver training techniques. This means that they are able to train our clients the best way possible. We have a range of driver trainer 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 Newport. Their friendly demeanour and calming attitude means they will have you feeling at ease and confident in no time.

Here’s just a few of the excellent ways we make a difference to your driver training 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.

Had an excellent experience with James. He is super professional and he loves what he does. James has taught me how to drive manual, basically from level zero and stalling every other minute to passing my driving test from the first attempt. I have... learned so much and I am very grateful for that. I would definitely recommend James to everyone. He is the best!read more

Had the best learning experience with drive zone! Bill was the kindest, most patient and knowledgeable driver a student could ask for. I really can’t thank Bill enough as the level and quality of service with drivezone was perfect . All lessons were... well planned and boosted not only my road skills but my confidence as well. Definitely worth every penny and will be recommending to everyone.read more

I was a bag of nerves and hadn't been in a car in ages. David was great at handling that and by the time it came to my test I felt much more confident. I cannot recommend David more highly, he is extremely approachable, professional and above all... patient. By the end of our sessions I felt that there was no issue that would slip me on the test, his understanding of the road rules and test locations is second to none.read more

James was a top man from the first lesson to dropping me back following the test. He took my driving from a novice to test worthy in 6 lessons! Highly recommend him and the price is highly competitive. Cheers James!

As an inexperienced driver I found the lessons with my instructor Bill very informative, he was able to pin point little mistakes I was making early on and helped me progress my driving skills, I was a very nervous driver early on but by the end of our... lessons I was completely comfortable headchecking, parking, turning the whole nine yards. Bill was always on time and very easy to talk to and get advice from, I have to give full credit to him and driving zone as there lessons where very detailed and tailored to the areas I needed to improve most, after ten lessons with bill it helped me pass my driving test first go. Highly recommend for anybody wishing to get there license. Safe driving ✊🏾❤️read more

I could not be more happy or satisfied with Driving Zone, in particular with my driving instructor James. His endless patience, encouragement and belief in me - especially when I doubted myself - was the reason I passed my test. Put simply, I am a driver... today because of James - he changed my life! You could not find a better instructor - particularly to help you navigate the challenging task of manual driving.read more

I came to this place because it had very good reviews and was particularly looking to learn how to drive in a manual car. I was very lucky to get Graeme as an instructor. After 5 hours of practice, I already was driving much better thanks to him. Also he... is very knowledgeable and will make you feel confident and safe on the road. Definitely recommend this school!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

I drove with both Bill and Graeme, and they both provided me with fantastic feedback and advice. 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). Passed my test on the first go with mostly just their lessons under my belt, can't thank you enough. I will be recommending Driving Zone to anyone else I know who is in need 🙂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. My... lessons felt relaxed and I could really see myself improve after each lesson. When I went for my test I was feeling confident and passed on my first try. Thanks again David for making this process so smooth and stress-free! 🙂 Would recommend to everyone!read more
