Testimonials - Babar

Sixta

I highly recommend Babar from Driving Academy Canberra.

I held my Learners for more than 10 years with fear and lack of belief in myself stopping me trying to get my Ps.
My husband always said L was for lazy,while I said L was for legend.

I had a couple if lessons with other instructors before I met Babar. However, I just didn't feel they understood me and didn't know about my driving skills and huge lack of confidence.

Then I met Barbar. At my first lesson with him he told me he knew exactly how I felt about my bad experiences with my driving in the past.
Then, he built my confidence slowly, enabling me to sit behind the wheel and feel that I am the one that is in control of the car.
After a couple of lessons with him my confidence increased gradually.
The lessons become more fun because he is a very nice, gentle, funny and welcoming human being.
I will always remember going from not talking at all because I was so nervous to talking about anything with him during my lesson.
He is very knowledgeable and always has an answer for my enquiry and not just about driving. Babar, you kept your promise that "You won't give up on your student and will make sure I get my P".
Today I got my P's and it was a big achievement for me.(even my husband was so pleased about this).
I was so happy to get my P's, but part of me was sad to say Good bye to my Instructor and friend Babar.
See you again Babar, I will beep the car when I see you on the road.

Kathleen

I can't recommend Babar highly enough! I thought that I would be able to teach my daughter everything, but Babar's professional, calm and knowledgable approach ensured that my daughter is equipped to be able to drive in any situation with the correct skills. He minimised any anxiety she had and his approachable nature ensured that she was comfortable and able to absorb all of the information and guidance he was providing. Don't think twice...make a booking with NDA and Babar is your man!

Kassandra

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.

Bethany

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!

Best driving instructor ever!! I was always so excited for my lessons, baba made me feel so comfortable with my driving and taught me a lot of great tips for my parking, even when I made mistakes he would always explain what I did wrong and how to do better in such a calm friendly way so I never felt nervous about asking how to do something or being pulled up on mistakes. 10/10 instructor

Mushtaq

I have had a great experience with the National Driving Academy while taking the driving lessons. I found my driving instructor, Mr Babar Chohan, exceptionally talented, logic centered, highly professional and accommodating who encourages a learner ‘how to think ‘ as opposed to ‘what to think’. Thank you, Babar, for being the best instructor ever! With your deep insight, guidance and patience you taught me the skills to become a confident and safe driver. Thank you for giving me the confidence to drive and for helping me to overcome my subconscious under- and over-analysis whilst behind the wheel. Your lessons were very informative, well-structured (both in theory and practice) and I really appreciated your encouragement. A big thank you to Babar for being very patient, understanding and good motivator. Babar definitely ranks among top 1% of my list.

I can't thank Babar enough for helping me get my license! As a mature aged student (31) who was very nervous due to previous negative experiences with instructors, I felt at ease and comfortable every lesson. Babar taught me so much, was encouraging, supportive and great to have a chat with! I hope he is still teaching in 8 years when the time comes for my children to get their licenses! Thank you again Babar, could not recommend you highly enough!

The meare idea of driving lessons normally leaves me shaking with nerves. I was giggling and welling up with tears of joy after my first lesson today. I originally learnt years ago on country roads and picking up bad habits. He was so patient and didn't play down my anxiety like other teachers have. Looking forward to learning with him.

Kade

I had concerns for my 16 year old learning to drive as he has learning difficulties and sometimes does not comprehend instructions fully. Thankfully we were recommended Babar from someone who used to work with him. The first thing my son said after his first lesson was that he felt so comfortable with that guy. My son is very sporty so has a knack for learning technique and it seems as if this is how Babar has taught him. Babar was patient, understanding but also just has a cool personality and makes it easy to get along with him. I couldn't recommend him enough after the way he made my son feel throughout his learning journey.

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.
