We provide a quality educational process:

sliderBrian and Susan opened B.J’s Driving School in June 1990. They both agreed Brian would teach and Susan would run the office. Before the end of that year, business was so busy Susan often had to leave her post to assist with picking up and dropping off clients for Brian.

They soon had to hire another instructor. By 1997, B.J’s had 20 cars on the road doing contract work as well as private training. After the contracts expired Susan and Brian decided to downsize the business again. They both agreed quality was better than quantity. Now the business operates with a small team of reliable and dedicated instructors

Jabu came to B.J’s in 1997 as a sub contract from another driving school to assist with contract work at which time he was teaching in both codes 08 and 10 vehicles. As the contracts came to an end it was time for Jabu to leave B.J’s and return to his employer. Susan and Brian saw potential if Jabu was to stay at B.J’s and with Jabus’ reluctance to leave an agreement was made with his employer. Jabu is now happily a part the B.J’s team.

Lara (Susan & Brian’s daughter) started working for B.J’s in April 2012. Business was busy and we needed a part time instructor to give our other instructors a day off. Lara was studying part time, so the hours were perfect for her. She became very popular and was soon working full time. Lara continues to teach to her dads’ standards and on occasion helps her mum in the office.
