What People Have to Say About City Cross Driving School

“Darryl, Many thanks for your support & guidance shown to Megan, Leah, Joshua & Emma during the many driving lessons. They are all certainly enjoying their independence of having their licence.”

Bernadette Clarke

“Before learning to drive I had been in a serious car accident, this left me with anxiety to driving. I started off with another driving school which every time I got into the car and had a panic attack would just tell me I was silly and yell at me whenever I did something wrong. I only went to a few lessons with this school until I couldn’t cope anymore. After having the courage to try another school I phoned City-Cross Driving School. The first time I hopped into the car with I felt safe. I had an amazing teacher who would never yell or cause me to have a panic attack. Instead we would pull over and assess the problem together. I felt so comfortable learning with City-Cross Driving School that I always keep in touch as I feel like I made a good friend. My father was overseas when I was learning to drive so my lessons were my only practise. They were always available morning and night and from any location!”

Jessica Caldwell

“Learning to drive was scary – until getting in the car on my 1st lesson! My instructor made learning to drive so much fun, and exciting. There was never any pressure, and I never felt scared to make a mistake. City-Cross made the lessons fun and this made my learning experience much better. My instructor was always positive, happy & taught in a friendly way – perfect for learning to drive! I still play some of the games we used to! I’d recommend them to anyone!”

Kelsey Ogilvie

“City-Cross Driving School gave me such an excellent teacher while I was learning to drive! They made sure to let me know how I could make every one of my skills for driving absolutely perfect. I felt comfortable to make mistakes because I always knew it would be taken in a positive way to help me become a better driver instead of feeling less confident. Overall, learning with my instructor was actually really fun and didn’t feel like a lesson, but I ended up learning so much!”

Maxine Monus

“I attended City-Cross Driving School a couple of years ago. It was a very enjoyable experience with my driving instructor. She made me feel very comfortable learning to drive, and very confident on the road. I always think of her advice when I’m doing a reverse parallel park!”
