What our clients say

When I first received my Learner plates, I was a very hesitant and nervous driver. I’d never driven a manual before, and my first lesson with Col at Complete Driving School was in a manual car. I was really nervous and anxious, and almost begged my mum to cancel the lesson! However, as soon as I met Col, I felt very comfortable and relaxed. He created a soothing, calm atmosphere with his hilarious stories and gentle manner. He was very patient, no matter how many times I stalled (believe me, I stalled more than I drove for the first few lessons). Within a few months, I was a much more composed driver, feeling safe on the roads and confident in my abilities. I would definitely recommend Col to any learner driver due to his patience and his friendly, warm manner. He gave me such great tips as well, which I still use to this day (I can absolutely nail a reverse park). Thanks again for your incredible instruction Col!

Col has seen both of my children through their very first driving experience under the banner of ‘L’ plates to successful completion (first attempt) of their respective driving tests.

His patience, measured and knowledgeable approach appealed enormously to Katie and Owen who equated Col with calm competence while parental efforts were dismissed as panic ridden. Tough act to follow!

We were confident that our children were in good hands while learning the finer arts of parallel parking and survival skills on Toowoomba roundabouts. Not only did Col prepare them for red ‘P’s, he aimed to develop good driving habits that will hopefully see them motoring safely for life. Thank you!.
