I enjoyed my lessons with Saif. He imparted his knowledge from competency 1 to competency 23. I found that learning with him to be very easy and helpful. If for instance I am not able to perform the competency well in one of the practices, he would get me to repeat the procedure till it is ingrained in my memory. He also ensured that I was calm during the reviews. I used to drive extensively in overseas for more than 10 years. Despite having a vast experience, my driving skills went to a different level of excellence after being coached by Saif. There were things that I was not aware of and he kindly reminded me. Lessons are never boring with him as we talk about various road rules and competency requirements. I recommend him to prospective students. He has my thanks as he made me aware of Australian driving rules. Overall, I took 14 lessons with him (including the reviews).

Danny was a fantastic teacher! He's great at explaining how to do things and breaks them down into easy to understand ideas. He's also good natured and helped me feel really comfortable as i learned how to drive, with good feedback forthcoming. I would highly recommend danny as an instructor for anybody wanting to get their manual license.

I would like to recommend Joe, he is really the best. I learned lessons with other instructors but the way Joe taught me no one ever taught me that way. He used to point out each fault and always push me to overcome that so that I will never do such mistake in future. He is very focused on his lesson and helped me a lot to become a safe driver. Thanks Joe for all your help and dignity to make me a safe driver.

Monique

I cannot recommend Joe Koren enough. I did log book with Joe, and got my p's with him. I tried a couple of instructors at National Driving, and decided to go with Joe as he was incredibly diligent, and knowledgable about road safety.

Lessons with him were rigorous and informative. I learnt many aspects of driving that I wouldn't have otherwise learnt, and I feel that I am a much safer driver for it.

Thank you Joe.

I cannot recommend Babar Chohan from National Driving Academy more highly to anyone that is in search of a driving instructor in the Canberra region.

His expertise and instructional technique cannot be faulted and has given my daughter the appropriate foundation to build upon and enable her to continue developing into a safe and skilful driver.

Thanks for ironing out the bad driving traits that I’m sure I would have passed on to her and for ensuring that she now has the knowledge to not be a menace on the roads of Canberra nor for that matter, the highways and byways of Australia.

I needed to get my au pair from Italy familiarised with driving on the left-hand side. I booked three sessions for her and was really pleased with approach Babar took. He was punctual, professional and provided me great feedback on the lesson progression, her competencies and what requirements she'd have to fulfil to meet international licence and insurance. I'll be using him for the au pair!

A massive Thank you to Joe Koren! when I decided to finally obtain my license & give it a go, I had no confidence at all. Joe taught me as if I was log book learner & taught me everything there was to learn on the road, He bought all that confidence back that I needed! He was patient, had clear communication, we focused on certain things until I got it right! He is honestly an outstanding driving instructor with so much driving knowledge and experience! I highly, 100% recommend Joe! Thanks again for all your help! I passed with flying colours! :)

I just finished my 1st driving lesson with Joe and he was just amazing. So informative and friendly, when you have a great driving instructor, you feel confident, and that's exactly how I felt. Highly recommend Joe, whether it's your 1st lesson or a one off, he'll be sure to teach you and advise you on things you should know and do. Looking forward to more lessons. Thank-you!

Joe was amazing! As a 30 year old woman who was scared to drive, Joe helped me so much. I had no confidence behind the wheel and from my first lesson with joe, I felt my confidence begin to boost. Now I have had my P plates for a couple of weeks now and I am so thankful for joe’s lessons and teaching style. I feel so confident on the roads now and I even feel like I drive better than some people I know who have been driving for years! Thank you Joe! 10 stars

If you want to be a safe driver, Joe is the best. At first, I was afraid to get into the road, but as I proceeded with the lessons, I built my confidence to get into the road. He is an expert in teaching the techniques to the point and makes sure you are competent before stamping. He is professional and friendly and I strongly recommend him as a great driving instructor.

Sally

I remembered starting with Babar he said two things to me 1) “i will never give up on my students “ 2) “ i have all the patience in the world”. I really thought he wouldn’t stick to his words at the start. But after a couple of lessons with him his true colours begin to show. He really did stick to his words. At the start i was very nervous and my driving was quite reckless and ruthless. And my previous driving instructor was not patience with me and i thought i would never be able to drive again. However, Babar was different he gave me very constructive feedback and did not mind that i made some mistakes. He was indeed very patience. Before meeting Babar i lost all hope when it came to driving, but Babar gave me hope again. He really makes my day. And after a couple of lessons my driving did improved, it still isn’t perfect but i guess only time will tell. So Babar if you are reading this thank you. I cannot wait to book more lessons with you. And hopefully by then I can drive like you.

Loren

I chose National Driving Academy because I find it easy to book and pay for classes online. They also offer good packages for learner drivers.

Coming from a country where people drive on the right, a switch to driving on the left is new and hard.
My driving instructor, Joe, has an exceptional and professional teaching skills. He helped me a lot to build my confidence and be a safe driver during my logbook. He patiently reminded me of my mistakes and shared helpful tips about road rules and safety.
Thanks to Joe from National Driving Academy. I would highly recommend him to anyone wants to learn how to drive.

Samson was very thorough in going through all the competencies plus their requirements at the start of the lesson and throughout, he was very calm and encouraging which really helped me drive to the best of my ability (I have anxiety and have found other driving school instructors to stress me out, which negatively impacted my driving skills).
I felt very safe with Samson's guidance and happy to see he wanted me to not only achieve my P's but most importantly to be an all-round safe driver.
5/5 Recommend the National Driving Academy

Hailu

Where shall I start, Yasir is an incredible instructor. Honestly speaking, he is, by far, the best instructor out there in Canberra.
I had a couple of driving lessons with a different instructor before beginning my lessons with Yasir. I had become nervous and a little fearful of driving, but after our first lesson I knew I was in good hands. He constantly cheers me up and builds my confidence. He has so much faith in me as a driver and makes me feel so comfortable, confident and ready to be a safe driver. He is very professional, friendly, patient, always on time, very good at explaining everything. He will be right in my door twenty minutes before the lesson. Before the lesson starts, he explains to me what we are going to do. He explained really well and will repeat the explanation for a million times till I get clarity on the issue. He has done it again and again without being tired.
At the end of driving lessons, he always gave me positive feedback even I knew I did a couple of mistakes. I really appreciate his positive words because they certainly helped me build my confidence.
His vast knowledge in other areas of life also takes me by surprise. He is the man that can give you an amazing explanation in any field. He is so wonderfully outgoing that I myself consider him as a great friend. I cannot thank him enough for the confidence and driving tips he is giving me. His driving lessons are life lessons.
If anyone is looking for an instructor, Yasseir is the one and only one you want to have. You couldn’t get a better instructor than Yasir!
Could not rate highly enough!

Yagie

Thank you very much Samson for all the hardwork that you have put into my driving. It took me five years with three other driving instructors to finally get my license. Samson is the only driving instructor that made me feel confident despite my doubts.He provided me with contructive critism and made me feel at ease throughout my driving. His car was just right for a learner like me. I recommend him for future drivers!

I had Shoel for 7 lessons, he helped me get my logbook and I’m very thankful. He taught me tips and tricks about U-turns, reverse parallel parking and just driving in general that I wouldn’t have know without him. He was very friendly; always kept his calm and we always had a laugh while driving. He was always on time with a clean and presentable car. I would absolutely recommend Shoel and NationalDriving to anyone, from beginners to people whom just need some extra help.

Before I started my driving lessons with Joe from the National Driving Academy I wasn’t very confident on the road, Joe helped me build up my confidence lesson by lesson and I actually really enjoyed my driving lessons and it was always something I looked forward too. Joe may have been my only driving instructor but I do recommend him to be the best driving instructor in Canberra & Queanbeyan. I always felt comfortable and safe in each lesson and I think they are the most important things when learning how to drive. I’m very happy I got my Ps and It was worth every dollar Because I was taught properly and it’s made me feel safe now I’m on my own and I have confidence thanks to Joe. On my final drive as nervous as I was Joe still made me feel very safe and he helped me with thinking it was just ‘another lesson’ instead of a test and it helped my nerves so much. I’m so thankful for Joe and his amazing driving skills and knowledge. I would 100% recommend Joe to absolutely anyone who wants to be taught how to drive the right way plus his kind hearted person and so nice. & thankyou heaps Joe I will miss our driving lessons.
