“Robert was an excellent driving instructor. He was very encouraging and calming throughout my lessons as I was a bit nervous, but he made me feel at ease. I would definitely recommend him to anyone wanting to learn to drive or upgrade their driving skills.   M.K. – Wagga Wagga

The Importance of a professional Driving Lesson

Robert is the owner and chief instructor at Riverina Driving Academy. Robert has a wealth of experience in the Wagga Wagga district having taught many young people (and some not so young) to learn to drive.  He is dedicated to teaching the technical components of driving but also has a major focus on road safety and encouraging students to become responsible road-users.

A driving lesson with Mum or Dad can be wonderful or nerve-wracking. Parents spend a lot of time in the passenger seat when their teenagers are learning to drive. This contribution to our community is significant. Hours on the road and filling in the log book is a must-do and repetition builds confidence. However it’s crucial to know that learn to drive students get professional instruction as part of their pre-licensing process.

Our driving lessons are not only designed to help learners pass the driving test. We strive to build on the work of parents to develop strong driving skills, road hazard awareness and accident prevention in all driving situations. Make sure you ask your leaner what was covered in the last lesson so you can reinforce it as well.

Robert did all my lessons and was sensational! I would not have come close to passing without his help and handy tips and tricks to being a successful, safe driver. He can explain things so well and is a nice guy in general! I recommend him to anyone who is looking for lessons. Go Rob !!
