Your Driver trainer Joanne

Has lived on the Sunshine coast for over 31 years, Beachside driving has developed from a need to keep young local drivers safe. once a fearful young student I felt the need.



Noticing with many not reading the Key to driving in Queensland Rulebook on the Sunshine coast, i have for over the past 5 years felt the need to teach, first a step son & one my boys 18 years ago, & last son just two years ago, and now many have (see gallery) to built their success stories.


Using my calm nature,  assisting learners to step forward in life, guiding students to build confidence in their abilities to learn how to drive, focussed on safety, road skills and practical techniques.

I am inspired by supporting students & parents to keep our statistics down. When young adults learn that applying the rules keeps themselves and others safe then all contribute to the safety of other road users.

The KEYS2DRIVE program encourages long, wide and deep learning, whilst self assessing assists drivers to  create long or short term goals.

When we face driving fears, we use a combination of techniques that assist the learner to deal with the unknown & various driving scenarios. Supporting not just the young, but  elderly drivers who are encouraged to refresh their skills.

Are you upgrading to manual license, learning maybe auto, you or your parent is anxious about assisting young drivers to create good habits early?
