About Our School
Since 1989, Peters Driving & Training has been providing driving lessons under North Shore Driving School and Peters Driving School in the North Shore and Northern Beaches. In 2001, our organisation became a Nationally Accredited course provider of TLI41216 Certificate IV in Transport and Logistics – Road Transport Car Driving Instruction, training hundreds of new driving instructors in NSW.
Currently learner drivers have to do 120 supervised hours. Under this NSW Government supported initiative, young drivers have the option of reducing their supervised driving hours from 120 to 100. Combined with just 10 hours tuition with a learner driver instructor this reduces your minimum hours down to just 80!
Meet some of our highly qualified, experienced and calm instructors. With over 20 instructors, we cover most of North Shore and they are here to help learner drivers become safer drivers.
