Specialised Support

Accident Confidence Program

Have you or a loved one had a car accident that has prevented you from getting back in the driver’s seat?

I personally know that feeling. I was involved in a serious accident approximately 28 years ago and whilst I was lucky to come out with just a fractured sternum and a couple of weeks off work, the thought of going through an intersection again, scared the heck out of me! It was only with the love and support of others that I was able to move through that time in my life.  But sadly, some people’s fear is so real, the thought of even a loved one supporting them, just isn’t enough. So, that’s where I step in. I help get you back on track and comfortable in the driver’s seat again.

So, if you would love to be back behind the wheel, take that first step and give me a call for a confidential chat.

Anxiety Assistance Program

You’re sitting in the driver’s seat, your palms are getting sweaty, your heart rate is increasing, you go to turn the ignition on, but you just can’t do it!

The thought of having to share the road with others, particularly when road rage is so rife, is inconceivable. It’s just easier to catch the bus.

If this sounds familiar. Don’t let this fear rule your life. We will work out a program to help you move past this and help you regain that independence. I’m sure relying on loved ones and public transport doesn’t fill you with joy. Go on, take that first step. I look forward to talking with you soon.

NDIS & Disability Support

  • Have you been lucky enough to receive NDIS funding for driving lessons?
  • Do you require support that includes a spinner knob?
  • Have you been struggling with a certain manoeuvre?
  • Need someone that can support you in a well rounded manner?
  • Need an instructor who will pick you from work, school, or home?
  • Do you need an instructor who will be there for you?
    Then you’ve found the road safety educator for you!

Here at Drive Skills 4 Life we offer a personalised, tailored service to suit your individual learning needs because as we know, everyone’s learning style is very different.

At our initial contact, we will discuss with you and your supervising driver what timeline you wish to proceed with.  This will include the frequency of sessions such as weekly, fortnightly etc.  Supervising drivers are also welcome along at any stage along the journey.

Sometimes with funding comes a request to gain an Occupational Therapy assessment to ensure future funding can be secured and to ensure your learning is progressing.  Finding an OT is easy as I collaborate with a lovely Occupational Therapist called Megan Coulter and she can be found at http://www.drivesafevic.com.au/

Got a question that hasn’t been discussed above?  Send me a message and I will call you back at a time that suits you.
