As a serial L-plate test repeater, I was apprehensive about ever being confident or able enough to go for my P's. I booked a few lessons with Southside Driving School, and from the first drive with Mal, I felt in control and calm. His instructions are clear and reassuring, and every correction he makes, he explains why he is correcting you. I also did the Test Day Package, which was invaluable. With Mal waiting for me at the RTA, I entered my test calm, and already in the right head space after driving for an hour beforehand. I passed first go. Thank you Mal, for the use of your car, your expertise, and your professional, friendly and approachable manner- and obviously, for helping me pass my driving test!

I really enjoyed my experience of learning to drive with Mal, his calm and reassuring attitude really helped! He provided easy to follow instructions and instilled me with many safe driving practices that are keeping me safe on the road now as a P-Plater.

Mal, I was really surprised (and happy) to pass my driving test and get my licence in little more than 3 months of taking lessons with you. Thanks a million for all your help and patience.

I found Mal very patient, understanding and extremely supportive during my lessons. He is very easy to talk to which makes the lessons less nerve racking. I passed first go with his excellent help. Am happy to recommend him to my friends and in fact one of them is now learning with him.

Being an anxious driver, I developed the philosophy that some people were just not meant to drive! But with only a couple of lessons with Mal, he made me completely confident in my driving ability. His calm manner in instructing lessons made me test ready, in which I succeeded on my first go! I recommend Mal to anyone looking for driving lessons. Those who have not succeeded in getting their driving licence or have little confidence behind the wheel, have obviously not met Mal yet.

As a new P-Plater I cannot thank Mal enough for helping me pass the test first go! From the beginning he was very friendly and reassuring which made for pleasant driving. His instructions were very clear and after my first lesson with Mal I was reverse parallel parking with ease!!!! After having several lessons with Mal my driving improved dramatically. Thanks Mal for your patience and encouragement!

Southside Driving School and Mal are the best. Mal made me feel relaxed during every lesson and his support and encouragement made learning to drive easy. His knowledge of the road rules and what is required to pass the test enabled me to pass first time. My twin sister and I learnt to drive with Southside at the same time and actually passed the test on exactly the same day, which the RTA examiner said was very rare for twins.

I wanted to thank you so much for helping me to successfully pass the driving test. You put me at complete ease with your professional and balanced approach which helped me to regain my confidence. I failed in previous driving tests and needed help to "polish" the skills. Your peaceful and encouraging way of teaching was very successful. I passed the test with 99% and was absolutely over the moon. I will not hesitate to recommend you to anyone that requires your services!
