Drive Skills 4 Life - NDIS, Road Trauma, TAC, Seniors Specialists

With Covid 19 continuing to hang around for the foreseeable future I am reducing my workload to no more than five sessions per day (depending on Geography) as I will be cleaning my car thoroughly between clients, to ensure we all stay safe.  Latex free gloves and sanitiser will continue to be given to clients. 

Vic Roads resumed all testing back in early June, but the backlog is going to take time.  They are hiring and training staff as we speak and several pop up shops will open soon.  Training a licence tester does take approximately two weeks of intensive theory and practical training, then a few days to a week to go solo after further practical training is completed.  So, please be patient, I know many are anxious about getting their tests completed.  

After school appointments are booked out at about four weeks at present, and NDIS bookings are out to about 4-6 weeks, depending on how quick quotes are accepted.   If you are keen to get started, please connect as I can put you in touch with another lovely instructor who is happy to work weekends and in the evenings. 

Many thanks to my loyal clients who have stayed with me, I look forward to assisting you all very soon and please, stay safe.

What our Clients are saying about us

  • Leia
    Sarah’s level of professionalism and knowledge of our road rules and responsibilities is super affordable and invaluable to any and all learner drivers who are about to take the wheel of independence with Drive Skills 4 Life! I really enjoyed her method of teaching: she would always approach any hiccups with friendship and never judge your driving style, in fact she encourages it! Drive Skills 4 Life is worth your time! Sarah is flexible, so if you’re a mum – she’s got a safety car seat for your babe, if you’re a student – she’s available as the home bell rings! Give Drive Skills 4 Life a go!
  • Jessica
    Definitely recommend going through drive skills for life when learning to drive. I have had my probationary drivers license for 3 weeks now after doing multiple hours with Sarah and I have never felt so confident when driving on the roads. She taught me many different things that not many other people had heard of when I told them, she has a great knowledge with what she is doing and very easy going! Thanks for teaching me and giving me skills I can use for the rest of my driving years!
  • Alice
    Drive Skills 4 Life is a highly professional and well run drive school. I can't recommend Sarah highly enough! Her kindness and good humour helped me overcome my anxiety in regards to driving on public roads. Driving has changed from something I was scared of and would avoid to something I actively pursue as a hobby as I venture into the world of Motorsport. Thank you Sarah, you gave me my freedom, without you by my side I would have been too anxious to pass my driving test last year!  
  • Tahlia
    I highly recommend Drive Skills 4 Life! I cannot thank Sarah enough for making my learning experience as enjoyable as it was. Sarah is very patient, encouraging and makes you feel very comfortable. Before my lessons with Sarah I lacked the confidence and knowledge needed to pass my drivers test. After a few lessons my confidence had increased and I had the knowledge and skills to easily pass my drivers test.
