Sunshine Coast Driving School

Servicing the Central Sunshine Coast


I have been driving auto with Sam for about a year now and he has been absolutely amazing! I am quite an anxious person and he has made me gain so much confidence in my driving abilities. He has been the most calm and friendly driver instructor that I’ve ever had. Not to mention, I passed my test first go!! I can not recommend Ldrive enough!

I had 5 hours of lessons with Rick, and he took me to all the routes that examiners will take you to. Before I took lessons from Rick, I had failed the test 4 times already. Rick was very great to build my confidence and I passed my test. 11/10.

Rick is one of best driving instructors on the coast. I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking a professional, friendly instructor for any experience level. It was sad to see him go when I finally passed my test and I couldn’t thank him enough for getting me to this point.

I recently converted my Overseas license to Qld license. I took 5 hours package just to be confident and sure with every road in Maroochydore. I never thought I would ace reverse parallel park and hill start. Thanks to Sam my instructor who taught me every minute thing and builded my confidence. He is very knowledgable and I totally recommend. The whole process was easy and communication was great.

As a mature age learner, I was a little anxious to find an instructor who would make me feel comfortable and give me all the feedback I needed. With LDrive, I got all that, and much more! Rick is a great instructor, very calm and to the point. With his help and support, I quickly built my confidence behind the wheel and got many useful tips which I will use for the rest of my driving years. I got my licence first go and can’t thank Rick and the team enough for it!

Rick was an outstanding instructor who not only has precise attention to detail, years of experience, comprehensive lessons and teaching methods, but who also genuinely cares about his students in their journey towards P-plater-hood! I passed my manual driving test first go, a goal I never thought possible before Rick – I could not recommend him more

My daughter completed driving hours using Ldrive as a professional instructors. Rick helped her to gain the confidence and skills to attain her manual licence even though she initially was only going to go for an automatic licence. Our daughter was very happy being guided by Rick and she enjoyed all her lessons which were delivered in a calm and measured way. I sat in on the Governments sponsored lesson and Rick explained everything in a thorough manner. I would highly recommend Rick for any age learner driver. Lorraine” “Learning to drive is such a nerve-racking experience for anyone, however Rick helped me gain confidence in all aspects of driving and made having lessons something to look forward to. At first, getting a manual license was something I was adamant I was not going to get, however under Rick’s guidance, encouragement and his professional yet humorous attitude, I passed my manual driving test first go all thanks to Rick. I would highly recommend him to anyone learning to drive. Sally
