Driving lessons will assist drivers in developing their skills, knowledge and road safety awareness to pass the driving assessment, but more importantly to always drive safely on the road. We are committed to helping Central Australian drivers become safe and skilled drivers.


To help parents further we have compiled a list of helpful "tips" when undertaking driving instruction between lessons:

TIP # 1 - Remember the most influential training they receive comes from observing their parents "behind the wheel" skills, judgment and behaviour.

TIP # 2 - Read through the Road Users handbook to refresh yourself on the current road rules, and in particular the "system of vehicle control". For example, GMIS (Gear, Mirrors, Indicator, Shoulder Check) before pulling out from a kerb.

TIP # 3 - Set up a schedule of professional driving lessons. Remember, professional instruction introduces the student to new skills. Driving between lessons allows the student to practice these new skills.

TIP # 4 - Watch your temper. Keep yourself calm and in control. Make sure you allow plenty of time so the student can set the pace.

TIP # 5 - Provide plenty of encouragement.

As we have a manual learner vehicle, we can only offer manual driving lessons.

For more information or to book a lesson please call "CADS" on 8955 0444 or go to the "Contact Us" page and send us an email. We will ensure we answer your query or help you make a booking ASAP.
