A Compelling Read
Dear Reader, I’m writing as a former student of Total Driver, and would like to fully endorse them in both excellence of driver training, and commitment to running a company determined to create the best possible outcomes of their students.
In December 2005 I started learning to drive with a local driving school. The training received was that of most driving schools in Australia. Within two months I was to go for my practical driving exam. Several days before that date, while practicing with a friend, I was involved in a near fatal accident, which to this day I have no memory of. I’m told that I drove through a stop sign at an intersection and was t-boned by a council bus directly into the driver’s side door.
After almost a year of rehabilitation and multiple surgeries, I began the search for a new driving school. Due to past events, I was looking for the absolute best in the industry. I saw Total Driver in the Yellow Pages and noted the experience with race driver training. After calling and talking to Gene about my accident I felt like I had found exactly what I was looking for.
During my first lesson I was extremely impressed. The fear I had of returning to driving was greatly diminished with Gene’s professionalism in the subject. Before we even turned the car on we went through the details of how to correctly set up a car for driving, as well as many of the advanced techniques used in driving.
The training was exceptional, and far different from what I received from a regular driving school. I wasn’t left to drive how ‘felt best for me’ and ‘as long as I can pass my exam’ was far from what was being emphasized. Rather I was taught exactly how to control a car, as well as deal with many different situations.
At first it was much more difficult because I had to actually train myself to use these techniques, rather than use any method, as long as I ticked the exam boxes.
I also did Total Driver’s advanced training day. This was extremely useful, as it taught me a lot about how cars act is various situations, as well as how to avoid them, both in theory and as practical training. After several months I went for my driving test, and came out with a wonderful report. I remember the examiner writing ‘good drive’, emphasized in large capital letters.
In the two and a half years since that day, I’ve been driving almost every day, on almost every street, with the upmost confidence, and to this day haven’t lost a speck of paint. I’ve been able to avoid countless situations, where without the training and confidence I received at Total Driver, may have ended in a Total Mess.
I would like to thank Gene, Mike and all others that make Total Driver what it is. A company devoted to being the best driver trainers possible. They put countless hours and resources into what they believe in, 7 days a week 52 weeks a year. As a student that owes so much to them, I would support any business related or otherwise involvement with Total Driver and any of their devoted staff.
