Driving lessons in the Waikato with an experienced, friendly instructor

About Progress School of driving

Hi, my name is Brian and I am an independent driving instructor who cares about your learning to drive experience. I operate in the Waikato, servicing Hamilton, Cambridge,
Te Awamutu, Morrinsville, Ngaruawahia and Huntly.

I established Progress Driving School in 1995 and over the years have taught thousands of people, of all age groups, to drive. The best measure of my success is the number of referrals I receive from satisfied clients. I am proud of my very high test pass rate.

In the early days I was an instructor on the Nissan Anti Skid Program which taught people how to react to, and control, oversteer, understeer and aquaplaning as well as teaching different types of braking and evasive action techniques. I also instructed people in practical defensive driving.

Teaching people with disabilities and mobility impairment is also an area of interest to me and I have a new vehicle specifically modified for this purpose. The vehicle has hand controls and a left foot accelerator to accomodate various needs.

If you have any questions or would like to book an appointment please contact me by phone or email located on the contact page.
