Why Choose Dovetail Driving School

Driving School Northern Suburbs

At Dovetail Driving School, learning to drive means much more than acquiring skills to pass a driving test. Lisa prides herself when Dovetail Driving students pass; they won’t just know how to move a car in a competent manner but maintain safety for themselves and others on the road.

Lisa has the skills – she is an accredited Key2drive instructor and Cert IV in road transport (driving instructing).

As an ex-nurse, her compassion is evident by understanding learners make mistakes and she gives students the opportunity to practice in a caring environment. 

She enjoys driving and does so with her family on the weekends in their 4WDs.


Keys2drive is an Australian Government-funded program providing learner drivers and their parents/supervisors a free lesson with a Keys2drive accredited instructor.
