Are you learning how to drive? And is mum teaching you driving you a little batty?
Then it’s time for driving lessons! Now I know you have a boring old person pictured in your mind – but that’s not always the case.
Two of our Galmatic trainers, Helen and Kirilee are driving instructors, with Helen a professional dancer and Kirilee a rally navigator, so nowhere near boring!
I asked the girls for their top tips on choosing the right driving instructor and put them together in a video for you.

It’s essential to teach our Year 10, Year 11 and Year 12 kids’ basic car maintenance and car knowledge.
Their driving lessons are solely geared towards obtaining their car licence, with little, if any instruction about how their car works, or what to do if they break down. Usually it’s license in the wallet, keys in the hand and off they go.
But are they safe? And how much does it cost to repair their neglected car?
At Galmatic we have been teaching School Group Car Maintenance Workshops For Girls (as well as mixed classes) nationwide, and over the last 6 years have found that the main fears for parents of young female P-Plate drivers, are around what their daughters would do if something was to go wrong.
- Will she be helpless? Will she know what to do?
- Waiting for help at night, will she be safe alone in her car?
- If she breaks down in the dark, will she be vulnerable to assault?
- If she can’t handle the car will she crash and die? Kill her friends?
The answer? Get her engaged, involved and informed. Teach her to be in control of her driving and her safety.
