NDIS Provider

As of April 24 2019, Bartz Driving School was renewed (as per the lengthy auditing requirements) as an NDIS Provider for “Specialised Driver Training” until 2025. More information to come about the specialised controls/education our instructor John has to assist people with an NDIS plan achieve their goals of obtaining their licence.

What makes Bartz Driving School a great driving school and different from other driving schools?

Bartz Driving School is a great driving school as we not only teach our students that basic to pass their P1 Driving Test, but we also incorporate defensive driving techniques as part of their tuition.

Our vehicles are less than 5 years old and are maintained to the highest standard. We have automatic vehicles that are fitted with FULL dual controls for the safety of our students, to make the learning process of driving a car less stressful. Sorry, we do not offer manual lessons, our apologies.

Bartz Driving School philosophy is simple… “treat each student like he/she is your own son/daughter” and “you only fail if you give up”. Learning with Bartz Driving School will set the learner driver up with the skills and knowledge to be a responsible and safe driver on our roads. Bartz Driving School teaches the skills for life, not just a test! Our standards are higher than the RMS test requirements.

The driving lesson is fully structured to help the students gain as much knowledge throughout the hour at a relaxed pace. All students are given an individual record card and information sheet, so their progress can be recorded. John & David are always willing to talk to parents/caregivers about the progress which has been made and tips on helping the learner driver be safe and comfortable behind the wheel.

I have autism and struggled to find a driving instructor that really understood me. John from Bartz driving school was brilliant with me from the beginning, and I just passed my ps test with a perfect score. Highly recommend John for anyone else on the spectrum.

John is an excellent driving instructor, couldn’t recommend him more. Easy to follow mapped out lessons to build up your confidence. Wouldn’t have been able to pass my driving test first go without John! Thank you BARTZ Driving School

I went with David for driving lessons a couple of months back now & can not recommend him enough! He was so incredibly patient with me & was very honest in when he suggested I was ready for my tests. Very professional & he made it a priority that he was giving me the absolute most of my lessons every time!
I can’t thank BARTZ & David enough for such an easy experience, thank you!

John is an EXCELLENT driving teacher. I WAS an extremely anxious driver when I started. Not for long, though. Today, I passed my first ever driving test. I owe it all to John and Bartz Driving School. Extremely highly recommended!! Thank you soooo much, John! You’re tops!

We've put 3 children through Bartz driving school & can't reccomend them high enough. All 3 kids were very comfortable with John instructing them & looked forward to their lessons. most importantly, all 3 passed their tests and are confident competent drivers.

I'm 34. I put off getting my licence for quite a while and didn't think I would be able to get on the road. John made it possible. John is very patient with people who overthink the process like me! I have my red Ps and now on the road thanks to him. Would recommend 100%

What a fabulous driving school. I was worried my anxiety would stop me from driving before I died! But Dave being so patient, calm, laid back, knowledgeable and understanding has really made such a difference. I don’t feel incredible anxiety every time I take the drivers seat anymore and I feel so at ease. I now have no doubt that after a lot of time and practice with a great instructor I will be a confident, safe driver. Highly recommend Bartz!!

Dave makes my son feel comfortable and enjoys his lesson. Thank u

This is the best driving school around. Thank you very much John for everything you did for my son. You were fantastic. Your patience and commitment were outstanding. My son was so nervous that he didn’t ever think he will drive. You bring out the best in him and gave him so much confidence. I know now he will be a safe driver because of what you have taught him. I have 4 other children and you will teach them all. Highly recommended driving school. Believe me, you won’t be disappointed

Bartz driving school, John you are awesome! I thank you so much. I never thought I could ever drive just keep taking transport & walking was my life purpose due to my personal anxiety after a accident at the age 15 stopping me from moving forward Look at me NOW 36 & I have my license. I'm glad the other driving school didn't think I was good enough to reply back to, as your driving school was the right choice for myself. 100% recommend.

Tammy (student), January 2016
