Our training vehicles

Hervey Bay Driving School provides late model automatic cars which are clean and tidy, well-maintained and fully insured. Sit back and relax as all cars are air-conditioned and have tinted windows for your comfort.

All training vehicles are fitted with dual controls for maximum safety. An extra rear-view mirror is also fitted on the instructor’s side to increase road vision.

Queensland Transport inspects driver training vehicles annually to ensure the dual controls work properly and the vehicle operations are in good working order. Unfortunately not all vehicles can be modified to enable dual controls to be fitted to the standard required for driver training. Therefore, the choice of car makes and models suitable for driver training is quite limited.

Our training vehicles are easily recognised by the navy and green roof top sign. L plates are prominently displayed on the front and back of our automatic vehicles.

Meet the team

Hervey Bay Driving School is owned and operated by a local husband & wife team – Peter & Sharon White. Both have worked in the driver training industry for many years and enjoy helping new drivers feel safe and confident on the road.

We are here to assist you in any way we can. For information and advice – please give us a call on 0417 631 220.
