​With over 30 years in the business, Dalton is the driving school that has educated more drivers (of all ages and skill levels) in south Sydney. Our difference lies in customised driving lessons, support for supervising parents, an advanced driving program, practice tests and qualified instructors with decades of valuable experience.

 

Dalton instructors care about getting your loved ones through their driving test, but also making sure they are equipped with the skills and knowledge they need to stay safe on the roads.

 

We currently provide driving lessons in the Sutherland Shire, St. George, Inner West, North Illawarra & Bankstown areas. Lessons for learners are undertaken in our fleet of late model cars, fitted with dual controls for extra safety, whilst lessons for older and advanced drivers may be taken in the driver’s own car. Value for money packages are available, as well as free lessons under the Keys 2 Drive program for eligible participants.

Everyone’s needs are different, and our expertise allows us to pinpoint your learning needs, whether it is negotiating a right hand turn safely or successfully completing a reverse park. To make learning easier, tuition must follow a specific order so that the necessary skills can be developed quickly. We utilise this order to provide the most efficient training with the best results. It’s all about quality, rather than quantity.

 

Once the learner has had a driving lesson, Dalton driving school’s instructors provide free ongoing support over the phone to answer questions, alleviate problems and help the home tutor provide the most effective practice at home.

 

We are here to help you!
