Apia Driving School Review

A big thank you to Sam and Apia Driving School for helping me get my P’s! As a mature driver it was a little daunting getting on the road, but Sam was very patient and a great instructor and taught me how to be a safe driver and pass the test.

I will recommend Apia to everyone!

Ana ReviewThank you APIA DRIVING SCHOOL! My son, Gabriel, achieved 100% in his P test today and we couldn’t be happier. Please thank Sam and Aaron for their expertise and patience. Practice rounds around the Five Dock RTA were a great way to build up his knowledge of the area as well as his confidence. Although, seven applicants had failed before him today, he did you guys proud by counting to five (when indicating) and overtly moving his head from side to side at intersections and roundabouts. I’ll certainly be contacting you again for when my younger offsprings require driving instruction. Thanks again Nicolo for arranging lesson times to accommodate our busy schedule! All the best. x

Lila Review

Nicolo and Sam were awesome, friendly instructors who took me from a scared older driver to a comfortable driver who might even have fun behind the wheel sometimes. I passed on the first go (even though I was so nervous that I didn’t think I would) and I feel certain they would have talked to me honestly if they had thought I wasn’t ready.

Ezmi Review

Nicolo and the Apia team were super friendly and helpful throughout my learning journey. Thank you guys!

Esther Review

Thanks to my amazing instructor, Jerry, I am now a proud P-plater! I seriously couldn’t have done it without someone breaking it down into small steps for me. I was so nervous about learning to drive at all (which is why I left it until I was 30 years old!), but the team from Apia, in particular Jerry, helped me to feel in control and capable. Driving is still a little scary, but it’s exciting-scary rather than crippling. I’d highly recommend Apia Driving School to anyone learning to drive.

David ReviewI am the guy who r not good at driving at all and if not limited my career development I probably never learn the driving in a manual car
But I am so luck to meet Arron and Nic
During the my learning I worried so much about vehicle control even before I pass the test I was thinking about change of car from manual to auto because it seemed so hard
At that very tough time I got tons tons tons of supports and instruction from Arron to build my confidence and nic always gave calls before and after those times to arrange schedule in the most best. These r the true reason I can finally pass my drive test.
Now I am so happy and feel so lucky about my choice of learning here.
Sincerely hope these guys and their families have a happy life
I so appreciate ur professionals

These guys made driving so easy, I started off so nervous about driving and not confident at all! After one lesson my confidence had already sky rocketed! All the people are so completely lovely and helpful. Definately recommend them!

Eliza ReviewThank you Nicolo for your excellent teaching and patience 🙂 . From day 1 as a scared little driver behind the wheel, that all changed with APIA and of course Nicolo’s fun attitude to teaching. I honestly felt each lesson was a building block to greater self-confidence on the road. Also, I liked the fact that a record of my progress was maintained as it ensured the following lessons could be dedicated to specific areas which needed further improvement. In saying this, I totally recommend APIA to beginners of all ages 🙂

Apia Driving School was fantastic! Arron was a great instructor. He was thorough with the driving techniques and road rules and taught every lesson in a positive and calm manner. Every lesson was worthwhile. The organisation of the driving school was really good, with courtesy reminder messages and follow-up calls to see how the lessons were progressing. Apia Driving school offers quality lessons in a positive and friendly manner. I would definitely recommend Apia Driving School to any new drivers.
