Reviews 5 Star Rating


I had been searching for weeks for a driving school to prepare my daughter for her provisional driving test. Luckily I found "Behind the Wheel" and Karen Foster. Although Ali had already completed 100 hours of driving, Karen was able to ensure that her driving and parking skills were at the standard required for her to pass her test on her first attempt. We found Karen to be a very competent instructor with a vast amount of driving knowledge. Ali found her very friendly and easy to get along with. Karen was also very flexible with lesson times and pick up and drop off points, which made it easy to schedule lessons around sporting commitments and Year 12 timetables. We would recommend Karen and "Behind the Wheel" to any parent looking for the best for their children's driving instructor experience. We will definitely be giving Karen a call when our 15 year old son is ready to embark on his journey towards his provisional licence.
