Driving lessons in Cairns

By choosing the Cairns Driver Training School to provide the manual driving lessons you are choosing the best. Rick Paukovits is a seasoned driving instructor and the only driving instructor in Cairns to be an Accredited Master driver trainer. You really will excel under his supervision.

During your first driving lesson, you will be taken through the controls in Rick’s Toyota Corolla Sedan and then, depending on your experience, you will be taken out to experience life on the road of Cairns. There’s no need to feel nervous, Rick will make you feel confident and at ease from the moment you take your place behind the wheel and you will find his teaching style encouraging and supportive.

As your experience develops you will drive on busier roads and take on more challenging tasks such as parallel parking and reversing around corners. Rick will guide you through each manoeuvre and will be with you every step of the way, all the while getting you closer to being ready for your probationary driving licence test. We’ll help you get from your learner’s permit to your P’s in no time!
