Welcome to 1st Gear Driver Training

You can learn to drive in a modern 5 Star Safety rated, dual controlled, automatic car, with an instructor who understands that learning new skills takes time, and who is patient and professional.

You can choose to learn by either CBT&A :( competency based training and assessing) which is the logbook sign off method. The CBT&A course is preferred by many new drivers as it is very comprehensive and works at your pace, or you can prepare to pass a V.O.R.T (Vehicle on road test) in this case I can help you become accustom to driving to the government standard, which is required to successfully pass. If you looking for just the V.O.R.T test, check our links to the ADTASA to help you choose a good V.O.R.T assessor. If you are from oversees, I can help you convert your licence to a South Australian licence.

As everybody is different, I will plan your lessons to suit your experience level so that you won’t have to feel stressed and under pressure. As an instructor, I aim to make the lessons focused yet enjoyable to help you improve your skills quickly and yet thoroughly. It is my goal to prepare you for all the challenges you will face on the roads by looking past simply “getting your licence” and, instead, focus on what happens in the following 12 months to ensure you become an experienced driver as safely as possible.
