What our clients say about our service...

  • On my first lesson I was really nervous and lacked in confidence on the roads but I was made to feel comfortable from the beginning as Ashley was a very down to earth instructor. I've enjoyed my lessons with him because he was always very relaxed and patient. Even when mistakes were made, he was quick to reassure me and to focus on the progress that I had made. But still managed to talk me through the errors to make sure they didn't happen again. I would recommend Ashley to anyone, especially those nervous about learning to drive. Thank You for helping me pass on my first time :)


  • I would like to express my thanks and appreciation to Ashley Richards for being so patient and persevering with me and me finally passing my driver's licence. If it wasn't for your patience and encouragement and the pep talks I don't think I would have passed my driver's licence. Thank you Ashley and Southern Suburbs Driving School.

  • I highly recommend Chris ( Chris Driving School) to be any learner driver’s instructor. I’ve known Chris for a short few months and I’ve been directed to Chris through the company I work for. I have learned a lot during the short period and have achieved the results I wanted. He has good communication skills, patience and knows how to instruct a learner driver as best for that pass result all learner drivers seek. He is also very punctual and takes his lesson with each learner very serious. He makes driving fun and at the same time achieves results. I know, because I have achieved my results through Chris and I now have my driver’s license after going several times, all thanks to Chris. He is a good instructor and has my highest recommendation to any learner driver who chooses his services. You are welcome to contact me should you have further questions.

  • I saw an advert for Southern Suburbs Driving Academy, offering a package deal, which included 4 lessons and a yard sesson. Mika, my daughter, felt very comfortable with Chris and looked forward to her driving sessions. More experience was needed and so Chris did another package deal. She became more and more comfortable behind the wheel. We booked an appointment for her to do her driving test in March. Chris did another intensive session with her before her test and made sure she was confident driving, rehearsing all the important criteria such as spotting, parking and handbrake takeoff skills. His calm and patient teaching manner definitely had an impact on how Mika handled her driving test. She passed first time round!!! I can highly recommend Chris, Southern Suburbs Driving Academy. In fact I have already given the number to two of my close friends who were looking for a driving instructor. (Edited)

  • Chris's Driving School provided me with great knowledge of K53. The expert advice and training I received helped me to pass my driver’s test 1st time. Chris's great sense of humor and knowledge of K53 made me calm and positive towards my test. What I found most beneficial was the mock test in the yard with Chris before the test. That got my confidence up before we headed to the test. I would recommend the Southern Suburb Driving Academy to anyone wanting to pass their drivers licence.
