I switched to hobsons bay driving school after 12 months without driving at all and after 7 years on my L plates. I was a nervous learner, especially at the beginning, and had a negative experience with an RACV instructor that made me hesitant about trying to learn again. My instructor helped build my confidence, and I always felt safe and in control. I got my license today at 25 🥳

I had a few refresher (manual) lessons with Mickey and he was great instructor! He made me feel comfortable and relaxed behind the wheel, which is exactly what I needed to get my confidence back. Thank you!

Mickey is probably the best teacher i could've asked for. He's fun to be around which makes it easy to learn but also knows exactly what he's talking about. No matter how bad you do for first few lessons he'll make sure to turn you into someone who can drive properly and safely. Would highly recommend.

I'm a 32 year old woman who for some reason or another never got around to getting my licence. I was determined to learn to drive a manual car. I am so glad to have found Mickey who was an amazing instructor.The first thing that stands out with Mickey is that he's incredibly patient, calm and never gets stressed out. He's always paying attention but also relaxed and approachable.We did practice tests on the actual roads where the real test was going to be. So upon the day of the test I knew exactly what was required and passed with flying colours. Just like many others before me, I couldn't be any more grateful and appreciative of Mickey getting me to where I am.

Mickey helped me learn manual and pass my drive test in only a few lessons. Really knowledgable and fun guy to have as a teacher. Very happy I went with Hobsons Bay, it’s 100% worth investing your time and money into becoming a good driver for you and everyone else around you. Thank you Mickey, enjoy your break!

Cannot express my gratitude towards this driving school, especially Mickey. I had a couple lessons and mock tests before my actual test which really taught me the confident I needed in the types of roads I would be tested on and will experience as a solo driver. Not only is Mickey an incredible instructor with loving support and kindness, he’s also a bloody good driver. Thanks heaps Mickey ✌️

I have so many wonderful things to say about Hobsons Bay Driving School having had lessons in automatic years ago and most recently learning how to drive manual with Mickey. Such great experience and have most certainly built up my confidence to drive auto and manual vehicles. I felt very prepared and comfortable during my test. I highly recommend them!

Mickey is the best driving instructor in Melbourne, there I said it. His approach is fun, friendly and full of knowledge and tips. He does what other instructors don't. Take you to the hard places. Super heavy traffic, city driving etc. Such a pleasure to learn from him

I love this driving school!! In my own reality I thought I was never going to get my license or even pass my driving exam. But, I had lessons to use as a voucher so I used 4 of these lessons from my voucher. Then my amazing instructor Mickey said that I would be ready in July (a massive surprise to me). Then I did a few more lessons with Mickey including 2 practices at Deer Park and miraculously I passed !!! FIRST TIME PASS MANUAL!!! For someone who could barely drive! Mickey is an amazing instructor! He has the perfect balance of giving feedback and being a wonderful friend to the driver. If anyone is intimidated by gaining trait manual license I would go with Mickey! He is amazing there is no better! ❤️❤️❤️
