Smart Drivers

How long have Smart Drivers been in business

Smart Drivers Driving School was established in 1998 by Martyn Lison.

Why Smart Drivers Driving School?

Martyn's approach is built on a belief that each driver deserves the best advice and guidance to make them a safe driver. His philosophy is one of safety first. This conviction is reflected in his calm and patient manner. Martyn is unique in that he is able to work with special needs adults who want to learn to drive.

What does Smart Drivers School offer?

Smart Drivers Driving School's goal is to prepare learners for both their learners and drivers licenses.

Smart Drivers driving school instructors teach safe, responsible driving skills in a patient and professional manner. Driving lessons are designed to cater to the learner driver's unique needs. The instructors encourage the learner driver to ask questions and answer them respectfully and professionally.

Smart Drivers School instructors cater for a whole spectrum of potential drivers ranging from;

  • Young first time learner drivers

What licences do Smart Drivers cover

We cover the following licences:

  • Learners lessons for all codes
  • Driver licences (CodeB)

What areas do Smart Drivers operate in?

Lessons are given in areas from Roodepoort to Midrand. Learner driers are taken on specific routes familiarise themselves with the area that they will be doing the test in.

How many lessons will I need?

Learning to drive is an individual process and is dependent on the individual. Learning to drive should not be seen as a race. Safety is a priority when learning to driver and the learner driver must be comfortable and confident by the time they go for their drivers test. As parents know it is a whole new nightmare when your children start driving. By ensuring that your child gets sufficient driving lessons to make them comfortable and confident will buy you a little piece of mind when your child starts driving on their own.
