Driver Education.

Confidence on the Road.

Melbourne’s Most Trusted Drive School

Manual Driving Made Easy Drive School is Melbourne’s most trusted drive school for good reason; we have over 1000 students who have successfully passed their licence test using our comprehensive and thorough teachings.The students do not stall or kangaroo hop as they are taught how to use the clutch friction point from the very first lesson. This takes away a lot of frustration for the student. We also teach our students defensive driving – this allows them to also be a safe driver, and finish our program confidently driving a manual vehicle.

The founder and principal instructor Gavin McGraw has over 40 years experience teaching Manual Driving and risk aversion driving. He has a background with Victoria Police and RACV Drive School. This puts him in a unique position of being a highly skilled principle instructor who is also increasingly passionate about making our roads safer for kids and everyone else. 

Our experienced instructors have the latest training in manual driving and risk aversion driving. They also have full and comprehensive insurance including but not limited to Professional Indemnity Insurance and Public Liability Insurance. Our cars are fitted with the latest technology to assist with your education, and they are regularly maintained to achieve the highest safety measure. Finally, we vet all our instructors to meet the most stringent requirements, including Working With Children checks, Police checks, Driving Instructor Authority checks, and also Background checks.
