"It's a pity there's only 5 stars to give because she deserves more. I fully recommend this Driving school, Joanne is very patient and a great teacher.  I was very nervous on my first time in manual but she made me feel comfortable and confident."

 Jo is the driving teacher I’ve been looking for, for so long. I spent my first lesson with happy tears at how grateful I was to be in the car with someone so calm and so safe. She’s helped me with my breathing whilst driving so I’m always conscious and aware behind the wheel. I feel so confident, and so empowered. What an epic human she is! She was absolutely born to do this. I would recommend her to anyone️

 Beachside Driving school are amazing. I had an anxious daughter who needed someone caring and patient to teach her to drive, Jo is this and more. She takes the time to teach the kids correctly and explains not just the rules but the consequences to their actions. I cannot recommend Jo highly enough.,

 Dear Jo, 

I'd like to say a HUGE THANK YOU for everything you have done for my youngest son Phil, for your kindness, patient explanations & perseverance, in teaching him the skills required to drive a manual vehicle. As you know Phil was diagnosed with Asperger's at an early age, making manual driving even more challenging, yet you taught him admirably the multi-tasking required to drive a manual vehicle competently. Due to personal circumstances Phil completed his 100 hours mostly in an automatic vehicle with me during school holidays over a 12 month period, with a small amount of manual experience acquired in his brother's manual car. Your communication by phone calls, texts & messaging has been fantastic, given that the majority of our conversations were conducted, & Phil's lesson packages arranged while I resided away from the Sunny Coast. Your willingness to invest time both during arranged lessons with Phil & in follow-up progress communication with me is much appreciated, he certainly put the 'hard yards in', & this was reflected in Phil successfully completing his driver test 'first go' with new found confidence. As they say 'winners are grinners', & we're both still smiling over his joyous success. Thank you so much once again, & we'll be sure to share your details with anyone looking for a fabulous driving school! Cheers, Janet & Philip Cox:)

 As an older Learner driver it has been quite the ordeal to gain confidence in driving. Until. Joanne she is absolutely amazing (I have had other driving teachers) that made me feel like I didn't know if I was improving or give me any confidence in my own skills. 

The first question she asked me was "what are your fears? " That's when I knew she was the one! Can't rate highly enough!,

 Jo is an amazing driving instructor. She gave me extra time that went towards my log book. The amount of confidence and time she gives you is just superb. I am loving my driving lessons with her and I'll highly recommend her to anyone who is learning to drive. Thanks Jo:),
