Just wanted to pass on a big thank you to Al who helped me pass my driving test today. Out of the different schools I tried Al was the most patient with the most clear instruction. Thanks again.
Just wanted to say thanks to Metro Driving for turning my very limited driving skills into a Drivers License. I was pleased from the start, they were always on time and taught me everything I needed to know to drive safely and confidently.
Just want to say a big thank you to Tas for helping me pass my license today! I would highly recommend Metro driving school to anyone wanting to obtain their drivers license. Tas put me at ease with all aspects of driving and gave me the confidence to pass my test. Again a BIG thank you!
I’m just writing to thank Alan for his driving tuition, which resulted in me obtaining my licence on the first attempt last week. Alan’s careful, patient instruction has made me a better, safer driver than many of my peers.
Hi Metro Team,
I believe Stephen would have informed you that I have passed my driving test on Saturday and that I declined having my photo taken.
Still, I would like to express my heartfelt thanks to Stephen for making this possible; especially when he was the one who coordinated the test on Saturday. He is extremely experienced, professional and patient. He was able to cater to my schedule, learning style and pace. I enjoyed all my driving lessons with him and there is without a doubt that he is very dedicated to his job. Stephen is also very efficient and very prompt in getting the lessons and test dates fixed (which I appreciate a lot due to my hectic schedule). Furthermore, he is almost always available for a driving lesson even on Sundays and in the evening. I have never come across anyone who works 7 days a week and for such long hours.
I would definitely recommend Stephen (without a second thought) to anyone who wants to be a safe and confident driver. Stephen is such a gem and certainly an asset to the company. Also, special thanks to Tracey for assigning such a superb driving instructor to me. I could not ask for a better driving instructor than Stephen. Thank you once again.
I just wanted to say thank you so much for the assistance you gave me in order to get my driving license. I am so excited you have no idea. Special thanks to my instructor Stephen, what could I do without him, he made driving so much fun and easier. Today is a good day to celebrate and from the bottom of my heart THANK YOU and GOD BLESS YOU ALL !!!!!!
Dear Metro team,
I recently secured a 5 lesson package from your school along with a test package for the final practical test. The lessons were organized very professionally and continuous reminders were sent to me before the lesson dates.
The instructor, Stephen was extremely knowledgeable and kind. He was very practical and provided very useful hints for better driving. I will recommend him to anyone who wishes to be a safe and a knowledgeable driver.
At the first practical test I passed and now I possess a driver’s license.
This note is to thank Stephen and the rest of the team for the excellent work done.
Thank you and keep up the good work
I’d just like to say a HUGE thank you to Stephen (South Brisbane/Logan) for helping me pass my test today! He made sure I checked everything and knew everything I could possibly be tested on and I did so much better than I thought! Thank you Metro and thank you Stephen!
I 110% recommend Jay as an instructor, he is cool, calm and a wealth of knowledge.
I booked a total of 8 classes with Metro to practise for my driving test, which was last Sat the 14th of November. Not only did I get the training needed to have a successful practical test, but I enjoyed my classes with Stephen as he was a very good instructor.
I can highly recommend Metro and specially Stephen for anyone that is looking to get ready for the Queensland driver’s license. I passed with an “overall good driving”, meaning no recorded mistakes. Thank you Metro and Stephen!!
Jim is such a great instructor who is very patient and calm. It helped me a lot, when I am nervous and frustrated. Jim not only reminded me about how it could affect my concentration, but to remember about other drivers.
Jim is always happy to answer questions, and explain in ways to understand. he asks questions about my decisions when it’s wrong, and cheers me on when I am doing things right. Jim is very encouraging, and not to give up & is such a friendly person. I always look forward for each lesson.
I recommend Jim to be your instructor he is very honest, and will tell you when your wrong and why his way of teaching is for you to be safe, not for yourself only. But for others who are either with you and around you. He’s happy to have a chat, but also concentrate and listen for his instructions.
Just want to say a big thanks to Mark for helping me pass my license today! I am 110% satisfied with his driving lesson. He made driving so much fun and easier. THANKS AGAIN!!!
Today I passed my Practical Test with flying colours, literally and I seriously couldn’t have done it without Mark. Not only was he professional but he was just a great person to be around. He made me feel so comfortable and happy while learning and not once did he put me down. There have been a few Instructors I’ve come across before that I wouldn’t be able to call a true down to earth person like Mark & I got the best results I could hope for if it wasn’t for him. He truly is the best! The first 3 lessons for $40 deal was so helpful & the lessons were absolutely worth the money & time. You’ll definitely be looking forward to every fun, goofy yet a great learning experience. Thanks Metro for such a great Instructor & experience! God Bless & Happy Driving! 🙂
Happy New Legal Driver ??
Didn’t know where else to post so I thought I’d post in. Really am thankful! 🙂 Thank you so much!
Just wanted to thank Julian for helping me finally pass my test!
He was very calm and easy to talk to so my lessons felt stress free.
Extremely happy right now, go Metro!
I am writing in regards to let you know what a great instructor mark was! I did my practical driving test today and passed first go with no errors. This was thanks to my awesome instructor mark! He really helped me improve my driving skills and I now feel very confident and safe to go on the roads by myself! As an instructor Mark was very reliable, very professional, always on time if not early for my lessons and went out of his way to make sure I could fit my lesson in with him as I have a very busy schedule (dance six days a week!) whilst he had a very busy schedule himself! I felt very comfortable driving with him and recommended him to all of my friends! Definitely one of the best instructors!
I wish to pass on my gratitude to Shane for helping me pass my test. I had two 90 minute lessons with him and found him to be professional and friendly, which helped me relax. He was able to talk me out of bad habits that I had picked up and this ultimately resulted in passing my test first go with only two minor errors. I recommend Shane as an instructor.
Brilliant, as the Mum of a learner driver, I can’t rate Metro highly enough. They went above and beyond to organise lessons and a driving test. The staff and Instructors, especially Jim and Mohsen are patient, friendly and caring. Please do yourself a favour and book your kids lessons with them.
Just wanted to say a big thank you to Stephen and Metro Driving!
My instructor, Stephen was very knowledgeable, patient and kind as I was very nervous and unconfident. I will recommend him to anyone who wishes to be a good and safe driver.
I sat my first practical test on Saturday and passed! Thanks Stephen!
I would just like to give an enormous thanks to the Metro Driving team for their services, helping me get my licence, and helping me to become a fantastic driver!
I have to give credit where credit is due, and that is to my instructor Mark. Not only is he a amazing driving instructor but a great person who made the entire process extremely fun and a walk in the park. I recommend Mark to anyone over any other driving instructor. THANK YOU!
Just wanted to thank Bryan helping Tim pass his test, He was extremely professional, punctual and has a very calming personality! Really glad we chose Metro and found Bryan!
Just wanted to give a quick feedback to Harold. I really enjoyed the lesson, Harold is very patient and was explaining everything very friendly and easy. I would definitely recommend Harold to friends as he is a great instructor.
Ross is an excellent instructor, he was able to quickly and professionally instruct me, correcting long lasting bad habits with minimal stress. He went above and beyond as an instructor. He went out of his way to make sure I had a car for the test on short notice, made sure I had all the information and did everything he could to help me quickly and painlessly master the skills I needed to drive on the road safely.
I cannot commend him highly enough, he was there every step of the way to make sure I succeeded. Thank you Ross so much.
I took the practical test after 14 hours lessons with Stephen within three months. And I passed the practical driving test without any mistakes. This result was out of my expectations as I am not naturally good with cars and machines (I am an Asian girl). I feel very lucky that Stephen was my driving instructor. He is very calm, patient and knowledgeable. Stephen did a great job in teaching me how to control the car as well as being aware of the situations on the road. He explains clearly the reasons behind the road rules and helped me drive safely.
I highly recommend Stephen as your driving teacher. He would teach you not only how to pass a driving test but also how to be a responsible and safe driver on the road.
Would just like to say that I passed my driving test on my first go! So happy and I can’t thank and recommend Mark from Southside Auto enough. He helped me achieve some great things and I would 200% recommend him as an instructor and a friend. Really caring and down to earth. Thanks Mark, Thanks Metro!
I meant to send this email as soon as I passed my driving test on the 30th of May, however I got caught up with finishing uni assignments before I went away on holidays, and I just got back two weeks ago. I really wanted to make sure that I provided feedback on Mark’s teaching, as I am so grateful for his help in me getting my licence. Mark is truly an incredible teacher, more of a “coach” I’d say, as he is always encouraging you to improve and to do your best. He was extremely thorough, and from day one pushed me to be aware of everything that was going on around me on the road. I will always remember in one the first lessons I had with him where he would repeat “mirrors, indicators, position”, which at the time I found a lot to process and remember to do, however I know am thankful for, as it helped me to become a better driver. This thoroughness also helped build my confidence greatly, as I felt more control over the vehicle and my ability to drive it. He was always calm while I was in the car with him, which I found extremely helpful in reducing my anxiety around driving. Above all, Mark was always a happy spirit to see every week for my weekly driving lesson. He was always laughing and joking around, which made each lesson a lot of fun, and something that I now really miss!! And finally, I will never forget how helpful Mark was on the day of my test. He went above and beyond, meeting me early to get as much practice in as possible and to help me calm my nerves. So all I can say is that, in my opinion, Mark is the best driving instructor out there!
I’d just like to send my sincere regards and a big thank you to Tim. I’ve seen a few different instructors from a few different driving schools and I can honestly say he was by far the best. Not only was he very calm, collected and pleasant but he provided relevant and logical feedback when I made mistakes. Tim has been a huge help in getting my licence and most probably has prevented future accidents. Special thanks also to the reception staff, you were very polite, succinct and organised with bookings.
Excellent driving school. Went through several before finding Harold at Metro. Very organised and great teachers who are very helpful. Couldn’t have passed my exam without Harold and the Metro team!
I would like to pass on my sincere thanks to all at Metro and especially to Jim. I am an older learner, upgrading to a manual after years of driving an automatic, and did not think I would be able to do it. Jim was endlessly patient, friendly, calm and encouraging. He was able to pick out and emphasise the most important road rules and provide clear, step-wise techniques for the manoeuvres, along with many invaluable tips. His test preparation was great: the mock tests were exactly like the real test down to the last detail and we travelled all the routes the examiners use. When test day came there were no surprises and it all ran smoothly. I would recommend the team at Metro and Jim.
I would like to say how happy we are with Metro Driving School. From our very first conversation with Danielle, I knew we had found the right driving school for our daughter. Danielle is fantastic – I had to change a few appointments many times and Danielle took it all in her stride. Such a fantastic driving school to deal with and they have great customer service. Alexandra’s driving instructor, Harold was nothing short of amazing. I cannot recommend him enough. He is a wonderful, patient man, always gave Alex great advice & strategies for the road. She felt very confident while learning to drive and her lessons with Harold played a huge role in this. In fact, today she got her P plates -1st time too!! and it is because she was so well prepared by Harold that she was successful. I highly recommend Harold as a driving instructor for your child, and Metro driving school is the only place to learn. See you in June 2017 Metro with my son, Dominic !!
Herman is a weapon of a driving instructor, passed my test easy with his help
My driving experience with Metro driving school was second to none. I was extremely nervous and my instructor Ross was amazing, he taught me everything I needed to know and it was so specific to what I would be tested on it was great. Ross would always give me feedback which was great to see where I stood with my progress and enabled me to pass my P’s on my first attempt. So very happy! Thanks Ross for all your help
With a few time constraints I had to be sure I was going to pass my test first time. I booked in with Ross for a couple of mock tests and learned so much more than I thought I could. He helped me to attend my exam with confidence, knowledge and safe driving skills which gave me the edge I needed to pass my exam first go! Thanks again Ross!
Jim Whittle taught me all the things i needed to know i order to pass my test first go, the only thing i’m upset about is i can’t give metro or Jim a 10/5 stars on the fantastic customer service and valuable experience they supplied me. Thanks Metro your awesome.
Best driving school, Alan was the best instructor! Never a hassle and always very patient! Thanks so much!
I would just like to say that I am blown away by how professional, calm, friendly, helpful, competent and downright miracle producing Harold is! I am 67yrs old and had never driven a car before, within 3hrs, Harold had me driving on suburban roads and actually driving myself to the gym, where I was dropped off. Now, some 4mths later, I cannot believe that I am able to drive my husband to medical appointments, take us shopping, drive the dogs down to the dog park and to their groomers at Redcliffe, go to the post office and pool shop etc. All these things would have been impossible in May and I would have been dependent on favours from friends 4 months ago. It seems incredible to me that Harold has brought me so far in so short a time and I am positive I would not have achieved the same result with any other instructor. He is so patient and encouraging and inspires calmness and confidence in me which, considering I was terrified at the whole prospect of getting behind the wheel is pretty amazing. Thank you Harold, you’re a marvel – 12 out of 10 – metro are VERY lucky to have you.
Jim was my instructor, over the two lessons i had with him i had learnt a lot more skills and knowledge about driving a car. I would recommend Metro driving school to people that want or are looking for a good driving school.
My daughter got her licence first time with Metro. She really enjoyed lessons with her instructor, Tim, who was always accommodating, good-natured and patient. Metro is a professionally run business: attentive to detail; responsive to customer needs; punctual; and happy to help.
Alan is one of the best instructor that you can find around Brisbane, he gives me all the tips that you must to know to drive in Australia. In addition; Metro gave me the best price in comparison with others drivings schools. The best money that I invested to improve my driving skills to get my license. Thank you very much.
During the final phase of my driving prior to the test, I switched to Metro Driving School where I had the pleasure of Jim being my instructor. I did a total of 6 hours worth with him before my test and I can assure you that I gained a lot more in those 6 hours than I did in the other 32+ hours of lessons throughout the past two years with another driving school (not mentioning their name). Jim was patient, thorough and detailed in his explanation when it came to maneuver’s, certain parts of the car as well as road rules. I am so grateful to have gone through Metro and wish I went through with them from the beginning. Thanks again Guys!
Such a good driving school , My instructor Alan was very knowledgeable and I never felt stressed
Tried several different driving schools while learning to drive and Metro was by far the best, I learnt the most through them. Once finding the instructor I actually liked everything was made easy and I managed to pass my test on the first go with no mistakes and errors whatsoever. Would definitely recommend to anyone on their Learners if they’re looking for affordable quality lessons.
I’m so glad I used Metro as they were the most professional and reliable driving school, were always available and were very welcoming and friendly. Harold is a star and would recommend him to anyone, he is the easiest person to get along with, so calm and always up for a chat – if you enjoy a good prank pick him. As they’re an RACQ accredited school it also made me feel safe in my choice as I knew they were going to give the most relevant feedback and coaching leading up to my test day as well as instil good driving habits for life.
I’m so pleased I used Metro Driving School as they were so reliable and extremely helpful! I would personally recommend my instructor to anyone, Tim is the most helpful and lovely instructor! I had 4 lessons prior to my test and passed without any problems. I don’t think that I would have been as successful without the help of Tim, just one of the great instructors at the RACQ accredited school, Metro.
This has been a great experience, practicing and ultimately achieving an open license. Brian is a very experienced and kind instructor. His tips about safe driving were really helpful. This was a perfect value for money experience with Metro.
It was well worth the money. It was well spent and now I have my license. Big thank you to Tim at Metro, great driving instructor and would recommend him to anyone starting out.
From the moment I looked online for a driving school I was drawn to Metro because of the RACQ Approved message. I found the website to be very easy to use and the assistance from the office once I had enquired and afterwards made my booking was nothing short of fantastic. Allan, my instructor was very relaxed and calm which made me calm. Allan pointed out to me my errors in a respectful manner and constantly reassured me during all my lessons and was very friendly. A healthy respect for each other was established. Allan guided me well to my practical test and was reassuring and supportive right up to the moment I started my test. I secured my license in an excellent display of driving. I am truly very great full and sincerely recommend Metro Driving School to anyone requiring professional and friendly driving instruction. A special hello to the office staff of Metro. Well done everyone at Metro, and thank you very much.
I had used the services of two other driving schools before my wife booked one with Metro Driving School. This one stood out from the moment I met my instructor, Stephen – Polite, Friendly and professional. If it wasn’t for his patience and professionalism, I wouldn’t have succeeded in my first attempt. Booking staff too were kind enough to accommodate lesson timings so that it suited me and saw it that I had the same instructor throughout.
Hi Metro, Thank you for your services. Thank you Stephen. I will miss my Saturday and Sunday lessons with you. Lessons with Stephen have always been fun with lot of helpful feedback.
Thank you for being so patient with me. I will definitely recommend you to my friends and family. I promise to be a safe driver!!! Yayyy!!! Thank you again!!!
Experienced instructor and very efficient lessons. Instructor knows the essential points of assessment including typically used routes at test for individual particular test centres. No money wasted!
Fantastic learning experience that I would highly recommend. My instructor, Jim, was relaxed and friendly, while also providing simple, clear and comprehensive lessons that allowed me to develop my driving skills.
Many thanks to Metro Driving School and my teacher Herman. I received my license last week, on my first test. Herman is wonderful teacher and made sure I knew the rules as well as how to drive the car. Herman was strict, but always friendly and helpful and always tried to give me confidence. Thank you Herman. Metro office staff were always very helpful, and thanks for the reminder emails the day before the lessons, with the date and time.
Great Experience!! I had Joanne as a instructor and she was AMAZING! I could NOT have passed without the knowledge and information I was given/shown during my lessons. Thank you 🙂
I passed my P’s test at Greenslopes today and this honestly would not have happened if I didn’t have Stephen as my instructor. I started driving for the first time in July this year and was a very nervous and scared driver but Stephen definitely helped me become more confident in my driving and he also catered to my driving abilities when we first started driving together which I really appreciated. Lessons were always fun, safe and informative. If you want someone who will teach you how to drive safely and responsibly, I would highly recommend Stephen. I’ll miss having lessons with you! Biggest thank-you to Metro Driving and Stephen because I can finally drive by myself now! YAY!
I am a mature Learner of 32, and after attempting to drive a manual for years I decided to get my automatic licence. My goal was to pass my P test before the end of the year and having not ever sat a P test before my nerves were shot, however I just relied on the solid training from Ross at Metro driving school and passed on my first attempt! He is clear, concise and very patient! Metro you are lucky to have him! Highly recommended! Thank you so much Ross!
