Instructor bio

Hi it's Lara here! Team up with me, an accredited experienced driving instructor and a qualified teacher for over 25 years. I also currently train future driving instructors when delivering the Cert IV Driving Instruction. I have a passion for driving and teaching, to which one might say, "It is the ultimate combination!" I pride myself in delivering quality driver education and producing a safe low risk driver. I have extensive teaching experience of adolescent and adult learners in the secondary school and vocational education systems. Also a former paramedic, I value the importance of my students becoming a low risk driver. I offer both manual and automatic lessons and I am a local to the Forest area and I prepare learners for the NSW practical driving test as well as a lifetime of safe driving. I look forward to meeting you and having fun teaching you a thing or two about safe driving!


I can’t tell you enough as to how grateful I am. Truly, for all your patience, encouragement and hard work with me, I couldn’t have passed without you. Thank you a million times over.


I just want to commend Lara for a job well done. She is a great driving instructor, she was always on time and very professional. I felt comfortable with her from day one. She took the time to clearly explain to me some of the things that I was not clear about. She was patient and calm and clear in giving directions. She provided me with honest feedback that I appreciated. Now that I've just passed my driving test, I have recommended Lara to my friend. I’m so thankful for having her as my driving instructor.


Today I drove around Sydney for 3 hours and I was thinking of my lessons. It was so good begin able to drive again on my Ps. I drove on the motorway, changed lanes and reversed numerous times all in a van. I couldn’t have done it without you. Thanks so much. I feel like I’ve got this now.


Lauren loved her lesson with Lara and said she learned a lot and that Kara was very knowledgeable. Lauren was very comfortable and is excited for her next lesson Thanks Lara


Lara, thank you very very much. You made me feel comfortable during my lesson process and your instructions were clear. I remembered everything you said during the test. It went perfectly. It wouldn’t have been possible without you.
