At 47 I decided to learn to drive for the very first time.
After 24 lessons (and no other driving) I passed my test first go with no errors!!
Calm and knowledgeable teacher made the whole experience a pleasure.

Congratulations Montag on your awesome Driving Test score of 100% - 1st time at Marrickville.

I enjoyed teaching you and seeing you change from a beginner to a very enthusiastic and focused Low-Risk driver.

A special thank-you for assisting me with my interest in designing quizzes on Road Safety.

I wish you the very best with your future SAFE Driving & finding a new car.

Thank you to Fran from Sydney Safe Driving School! Your calmness and teaching techniques helped me become a better, safer driver. The way Fran structured her lessons with the free in-car learning app, Licence Ready, helped me get the most out of each lesson, and pass the test  first go! I would highly recommend Fran to anyone learning to drive.

Fran is a very thorough instructor who provides lesson notes via an app for pre-lesson preparation and post-lesson review, has a wide variety of practice routes from easy to challenging, and useful techniques for helping with moves like reverse parallel parking. Fran’s calm and friendly demeanour put my daughter at ease immediately. I would recommend Fran to learner drivers of all ages.

Fran was a fantastic teacher, she was friendly and immediately made me feel confident and comfortable in the car. Her calm attitude and structured lessons are very thorough and never missed a head check or blindspot! Every lesson had a purpose and with the help of License Ready, Fran was sure to always be on top of everything. She made city driving seem relaxing and she went above and beyond on her acronyms and steps for certain areas when driving, which helped me significantly. I passed my driving test first time, feeling confident that we covered all aspects of learning to drive a car.  Fran was very professional and lovely, making the lessons go as smoothly as possible. Thank you Fran!
