Concerns the ACT has the most relaxed P-Plate rules in Australia, have prompted a review of driving laws.
Our head trainer was on the radio last night. If you didn't have a chance to listen, you missed some critical insights that could have helped you take your driving skills to the next level. But don't worry. You still have a chance to catch up by listening to the recording. You'll discover some valuable tips that can transform your driving today!
In August 2008 I decided to buy a Mini Cooper and start a part-time hobby on the weekends, Panache Driver Training was born. It did not take long after starting Panache that this was bigger than just a weekend hobby and I said goodbye to my day/night job an Interstate car transporter of 20 years and embarked on the amazing journey that has been Panache! There have been ups and downs of course having no idea of how to run a business when I started, but there's nothing like the feeling when you bump into a past student you taught years ago and the first thing they say is, “thank you for teaching me how to drive and giving me the confidence out on the roads, oh and by the way I have not crashed once!” Not in my wildest dreams could I have imagined what's been accomplished over the past 10 years: Thousands of lifelong memories created by amazing young people while they achieve their dream of independence. Meeting and talking with my all-time heroes and discovering they share my thoughts and passion about road safety. Being nominated for the Australian Road Safety Awards, let alone being a Finalist in the 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, and 7th. To Win the 7th Indigenous Australian Road Safety Award for The Panache Special Needs Learn to Drive Program was such an honour and so overwhelming. Thank you to my amazing wife and family and everyone who's helped make these 10 years possible. To those who've contributed in support, advice, ideas, spreading the word, nominating us for awards, recommending us to friends, or just stopping to chat. Thank you. You've got no idea how much it's appreciated.
