Great place to learn to drive
The staff at Advanced Road Craft are very knowledgable and friendly. I had a great experience learning how to drive safely. I would highly recommend going to Advanced Road Craft for drivers training.
Great Service With A Smile, Informative, Knowledgeable and Friendly
I was really scared and nervous about learning how to drive but as soon as I came to Advanced Road Craft and met with Mick Sayer and his team I felt extremely comfortable and was well informed and was able to succeed in completing my driving lessons in class and in car. It was easy to understand the in class lessons and Mick was very helpful and patient with me for the in car lessons, giving me feed back on how to improve but also letting me know when I had done well. Thanks to Advanced Road Craft for making me feel safe and ready for the road :)
Very patient and professional. Felt very comfortable as a new driver. Would absolutely recommend to anyone.
The first thing that comes into my mind with ARC is 'Wow'! I have just finished my in-car lessons and I feel much more comfortable with my driving abilities than ever before. Mick is such a wonderful instructor, genuinely caring about every single student's safety and teaching us to his utmost ability. (Which coincidently, is over and above amazing with all of his vast experience!) Mick was such a wonderful instructor for me, my safe-driving habits have improved leaps and bounds with the way he teaches. His way of teaching is perfect in my opinion, he is very calm when speaking with the student, easing them just enough so they aren't tense. (But not too lax either.) Once the student feels comfortable (which for me was doing a few laps in an empty parking lot as we chatted) Mick teaches the many ins and outs of safe driving, making sure that we learn as much as possible during the 10 hours we have in-car. I honestly believe I could not have learned so much anywhere else, ARC is definitely going places! Cheers mate!
Very professional and patient. Would highly recommend. Thanks so much!
Delivered professional service, very enjoyable
I thoroughly enjoyed my experience with Advanced Road Craft. Upon entering the office within the first day, we were warmly greeted and made comfortable. In class was kept light and fun, but we studied some heavy subjects that were handled with utmost respect. I felt perfectly comfortable and trained on road signs, road side procedures, and how to use the road effectively and safely when beginning my in car training. I spent 10 hours in car and doubled with a friend of mine to increase observation time and add some fun :) I have come out of my training with ease on the roads. I now drive defensively and I look forward to gaining more experience with Advanced Road Craft in the future. Job well done
It seems that the instructors at ARC really care about the success of their students, up to the point that they will even offer the car they train you in to use on your exit tests.
Excellent Drivers’ Training School
My daughter just finished her in-car lessons with Mick. He is a wonderful trainer and she felt very comfortable driving with him. The in-class course was very good as well, preparing her to pass her G1 test easily. I would highly recommend Advanced Road Craft for any new driver. My daughter and her three friends have now all done the course. My son took his training course a few years ago at another local school and neither of us were impressed. I wish I had known about Advanced Road Craft then.
Advanced Road Craft is a driving school I'd recommend not only to new drivers but ones who want to ensure safety on the road. Beginning the course, I was nervous and not confident in my abilities and now, at the end of a mere 10 hours in class and 10 hours in car I was taken by surprise at the amount of confidence I gained. Not only was it an exceptional experience but the friendly atmosphere helped to reduce any nerves I was feeling. I truly felt that the education I gained will prepare me for the rest of my life. With all of Mick's experience I never once had a doubt about my choice of which driving school would be the best for me.
Goes Beyond Test Prep
Mick is probably the most knowledgable and passionate driving instructor in the KW Region. He truly cares about making sure every driver is trained past the average standard to ensure the driver is able to navigate not only the roads safely, but is equipped and ready to avoid almost any accident caused by anything, from nature to trucks to drunk drivers. Aside from the many invaluable and detailed extra training sessions (winter driving, roundabouts, etc.), the Ministry of Transportation Test preparation courses are particularly stand out courses. Mick teaches these courses with one goal, to ensure you are comfortable and 300% ready to safely operate a vehicle. By the end of the course you are beyond ready and driving the vehicle itself becomes second nature. To Mick, the tests aren't a very high priority, rather a mere checkup of the basics you learn from him. And this is exactly what they become, a simple checkup you barely think twice about, confident and no question you're getting 100%. Although Advanced RoadCraft is still in it's beginning stages, there's no doubt this company will soon be the prestigious driving school of the region.
Advanced Road craft was a great experience, the instructors were amazing, both energetic and passionate in what they do. I would recommend this school to anyone.
Very professional, educational and fun
Advanced road craft is the place to go if you want to learn how to drive and be safe on the road. I 100% recommend this school to anyone who wants to learn how to drive and be safe on the roads.
Want to thank Mick very much for helping our daughter with her driving skills. We had signed her up with a different driving school, she went through the whole course and we even paid for more road lessons. She then failed her first G2 attempt and we as parents knew she wasn't ready to be driving by herself. I had heard through a friend about Advanced Road Craft and was happy the we could get our daughter in for some extra lessons. She was very happy and said how much better her experience was and also how much more she had learned. We as parents also witnessed how much her driving skills improved after only two 2 hr. lessons. Our daughter had a total of 4 lessons, did her drive test again (in the pouring rain) and passed with a great mark. I would recommend everyone I know to use Advanced Road Craft for their children. It's sad to say there are a lot of Driving schools out there that are doing a very poor job at teaching young kids how to drive and be well enough prepared for the seriousness of being on the road as a new driver. I'm glad now that I was made aware of Advanced Road Craft and that in 2 more years when our next daughter turns 16 there will be NO question what school she'll be attending. Thanks again Mick for your passion to give the highest quality training possible. Your enthusiasm and truly caring personality makes choosing Advanced Road Craft the best choice!
High Quality One on One Approach Education
When I needed to find a driving school to get my g2 early two things were on my mind, high quality education and affordability. Advanced road craft was the best of both. Mitch (The Main Instructor) gave us so much information during the in class sessions. And made the in car sessions fun and a learning experience. This school more than prepared me for the G2 test which I passed with flying colours. Thanks to Advanced Road Craft for the great things I learned. If your looking for the best driving school, don't hesitate in signing up for advanced road craft you won't be sorry.
