Your Driver trainer Joanne

Has lived on the Sunshine coast for over 35years, plenty of local road experience a mother of two independent  grown  young men 22 & 37 years.

I enjoy standup paddle boarding around our beautiful beaches.

I have for over the past 8 years felt the need to teach  local drivers of any level due to the coast becoming so busy, I learnt to drive in & grew  up in western suburbs Sydney. The Sunshine Coast is getting busy now with lots of interstate drivers you need your wits about you.


Teaching is a love job, I first taught my eldest son then step son, & youngest son not too many years ago.I really love assisting many awesome students to build their  confidence and star in their own success stories.

Beachside driving has developed from a need to keep young local drivers safe. Joanne was once a fearful young student who learnt to drive in the city.


Always recommending students read the Rulebook to know your rights and obligations on the road before driving on the  Sunshine coast roads. Joanne uses techniques that support learners to step forward in life. Students gain confidence in their abilities when learning how to drive, including long, wide and deep learning in preparation to build on road skills and safe 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 we all contribute to the safety of other road users.

Lessons with a Trainer who encourages long, wide and deep learning, whilst encouraging drivers self assessing  technique's this assists parents and drivers to  create long or short term goals. 60mins on road driving equals 3 logbook hours.

When we face driving fears, we use a combination of techniques that assist the learners to deal with the unknown incorporating various driving scenarios.  Coping with situations that trigger emotions like accidents, brings mindfulness of other drivers and their decision making.

I bring 40 years of driving skills, I encourage self confidence and skills that will enhance the rest of a persons life. We all can refresh our road rules this helps young  parents or elderly drivers .

If you are upgrading to manual license, we can support you or your parents who  are busy, maybe the shared anxiousness is impacting both of  you!

Lets all support learners to bring out the most responsible driving skills in those preparing or ready for their Provisional license.

 Accredited Driver Trainer, bluecard compliant !
