5 stars driving lessons!! I met Viktor through the defensive driving course. At that moment I was in my learner’s license, and I had failed the practical test once. I was struggling to improve my driving skills and feeling confident when driving. I took classes w Viktor and he helped me to gain confidence. He has amazing skills for teaching and very knowledgeable. I passed my practical test with no critical error and then I took 3 more classes to prepare for the full test, which I also passed :)

Absolutely fantastic driving instructor, very knowledgeable and very practical. I am 24 and hadn't done much driving before starting lessons with Victor. The only thing better than the high quality, enjoyable conversations is the quality of the lessons. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Victor to anyone, at any skill level.

Victor explains very well and clearly, his driving lessons helped me a lot - I mastered driving skills and passed the practical test at the very first attempt! Higly recommend!

Victor is a wonderful driving instructor. He is incredibly patient and kind, making you feel totally comfortable even in difficult new driving situations. He explains things very clearly, which makes picking up new driving components manageable. Because of him, I passed my restricted test on my first try, which my testing officer told me only 20% of people do. I would definitely recommend driving lessons with him!

Victor is an amazing driving instructor! He is patient, friendly, and I enjoyed his jokes and stories. I started my lessons nervous, but he is extremely knowledgeable, flexible with scheduling lessons around my work, and found effective ways to teach me. I only took lessons from Victor as I didn’t have anyone else to teach me, but even with just Victor’s lessons I was able to pass my Restricted on my first try! The time and money I spent was 100% worth it, thank you again Victor! ??
a**********a (0Thursday, 6 October 2022 )
I would highly recommend driving lessons with Victor. He is very patient, polite and friendly and gives a lot of valuable hints and tips on the road as well as points out the areas to improve. He is also flexible and tries to accommodate student’s preferred times, especially when an exam is approaching. Thanks to his lessons I not only was able to pass my Restricted test but also feel pretty confident driving on my own now. Absolutely worth time and money! Thanks again! :)

I put off moving from learners to restricted for 7 years. After taking lessons from other driving instructors I came to Auckland Driving School, within 2 months I passed my restricted first attempt with no errors thanks to Victor who went above and beyond to make it happen. He was very friendly, supportive and informative. He really knows his stuff and his lessons and jokes were the highlight of my week, a real professional. I cannot recommend Auckland driving school enough.
e***********e (20Tuesday, 19 April 2022 )
I would highly recommend Victor for driving lessons. He is patient, knowledgeable, friendly and made me feel at ease despite me being quite nervous at the start. I did a block of 10 lessons with Victor as well as a lot of practice outside of those lessons and passed my restricted test on the first try. Thanks Victor for your efforts!

Someone recommended Victor to me and I think it was one of the best decisions to take driving classes with him. Victor is an awesome driving instructor! Patient, knowledgeable, reliable and great fun! Adaptable to accomodate your driving needs and schedule! He helped me overcome one of my biggest fears. Started driving from scratch and helped me pass my full licence from first try. He helps with mentality, build confidence and acquire practical knowledge. Thanks Victor for all your help!

Highly recommend this service! Professional, skilful and friendly instructors who will make you a confident driver and give you a proper stressless practical test preparation. They'll take care of your learning path based on your current skills level, so you'll just relax, enjoy your lessons and have fun throughout the course. Passed my restricted easily.

Viktor is a fantastic driving instructor! He is very patient and great at encouraging you to be comfortable and confident driving. I went from zero driving experience to passing my restricted test on the first time! I would definitely recommend taking lessons with him.

Victor is an amazing driving instructor! Very thoughtful and patient, he knows how to encourage and motivate you and gives the useful tips and confidence on the road. I started to learn driving from scratch with him and passed my Restricted driving test at the very first attempt! I couldn’t believe it! Thank you, Victor!
m***9 (0Thursday, 5 December 2019 )
Victor is a very friendly and knowledgeable instructor. I practised driving with him for my practical test and it was great. Started my lessons being less confident in driving on NZ roads and became very confident and knowledgable as the classes went on. He really improved my level of driving. Victor really taught relevant skills to help me pass my restricted driving test. Victor is also a knowledgable car dealer and can advise on your car choice.
j*****3 (6Sunday, 27 October 2019 )
I had put off learning to drive for a long time but Victor made everything seem easy - incredibly calm and patient, he explained things in a way that was clear and made me a better driver, not just able to pass the test. He was very easy to communicate with and organising lessons around my work schedule was never a hassle. I would highly recommend him!
j*********n (27Saturday, 21 September 2019 )
Victor helped my son gain confidence after he’d failed his restricted test a couple of times. He had some excellent refining tips and was very reassuring and encouraging. After just 2 lessons, he did pass and with an almost perfect drive. He communicated very well and had a sense of humour that Oscar enjoyed. I will definitely be asking Victor to help us teach our other children!
o**********a (0Friday, 29 March 2019 )
I am very satisfied by the way how Victor approaches his students. He is very patient and supportive. All these helpful tips and advice helped me to get my restricted license. Very grateful to have had Victor as my driving instructor. Aside from being great driving instructor, he is a great person too. Would definitely recommend!!! Thank you, Victor

a*******y (162Thursday, 15 November 2018 )
Victor was very patient, helpful and professional. To help me pass my restricted, he gave me pointers and "homework", these included specific road rules and things I needed to pay attention to. It would've taken me a lot longer to learn the skills to pass my test, without his lessons. Thank you, Victor! -Marcus (17)
v******a (17Monday, 3 September 2018 )
Professional, calm beyond belief and very clear with all instructions! Passed my test with the first attempt and remember Viktor often driving from home to office. Thank you!
i********v (7Tuesday, 5 June 2018 )
Absolutely remarkable instructor! From absolute zero to full license in 9 months. In fact I took just about 20 lessons and a defensive driving course which Victor also provides. Passed on my restricted and full exams from the first attempt. Not only is Victor a very effective instructor, he’s also just a nice friendly person. We had interesting chats during and after our classes. Highly recommend!
o******3 (62Friday, 18 May 2018 )
Victor is an awesome instructor. I highly recommend him! I've been taking lessons from Learner's to Restricted licence and passed. He explains clearly and is very patient. So if you're inexperienced and unsure learning driver who thinks that driving might not be for you then I definitely recommend Victor, he'll change that attitude! Thank you, Victor.

Victor is a great instructor! Very patient and professional with outstanding tutoring skills. Many thanks for guiding me through conversion of my foreign driver license and awesome lessons and tips.
a*****a (6Saturday, 17 March 2018 )
Just passed my Full Licence Test!! Being a first-time adult driver, I couldn't believe it. All thanks to Victor! He is an amazing instructor who had the patience & understanding that was required. The previous instructor, I trained with, had given up on me saying.. "it's ok there are some people that are not meant to drive"! Victor completely changed that around and repaired my shattered confidence. He never gives up on you. Victor is highly recommended! Lesson are fun & informative.. - Amrita
m**k (264Thursday, 1 March 2018 )
PASSED on the first attempt and it is all thanks to Viktor. I would definitely recommend taking lessons with Viktor. He is very calm, informative, super friendly and explains the road rules in a way that are easy to grasp. Viktor is also very reliable. He was never late and didn't cancel any of my lessons (I had 48) but was super flexible when I needed to amend them. I was VERY nervous before the test but Viktor helped me change my mentality around which resulted in a PASS! Thankyou so much :)

All i can say is, Viktor is a brilliant driver Instructor!!I had 4 driver instructor before him and he is amazing! Professional, easy to deal with and i passed my practical for the first time! I recommend him to my friend maridel and she is driving confidently now. Cheers! Lovelyn (Elle) Vernall Remuera Rd.
c***n (62Monday, 18 December 2017 )
I would recommend Victor as a driving instructor. He has many years of experience not only teaching but with the protocol that is used during driving tests in the area and therefore knows what examiners are expected of you in the test and also as you further your driving outside of testing conditions. He is calm and easygoing and teaches to suit your learning style.
m*******7 (10Sunday, 18 June 2017 )
Highly recommend Victor, he is very calm, kind knowledgeable and professional, reasonable price. Not only he helped me with getting my driving confidence back, but also my car check up and repair advice. Very happy, thank you Victor.

Hi I would highly recommend victor as my wife who had never drove before has got the restricted license in her first attempt and this was possible only because of efficient and professional training and guidance by victor
z******y (154Monday, 19 December 2016 )
What differs him from the other instructor is his dedication and patience to ensure you are proficient in an area before moving on to the next. The other excellent point of having Victor as your instructor is he ensures that he's with you at least once a week consecutively until you are ready to sit for your test. Thank you Victor, I've passed my restricted test and all the best with your school.
t**********d (5Thursday, 1 December 2016 )
Victor is an excellent instructor. He was instrumental in helping me to achieve my goal of getting my Restricted licence before the end of the year. I would recommend him to any learner driver.
r****t (90Thursday, 17 November 2016 )
I would highly recommend Victor to anyone wanting to learn to drive. Victor, helped me gain so much more confidence, his patience & advice helped me pass my restricted with success. His teaching skills make everything so much easier, & enjoyable! Lessons with Victor are always fun, thanks to his great sense of humour.
v********z (336Friday, 21 October 2016 )
I highly recommend Victor as a professional driving teacher. He has tons of experience. And what was more important for me that he knows the right words to easily explain existing mistakes and reveal the logic of what you should do. It's always interesting and helpful. It was a lot of stuff I was afraid of in driving. And thanks to Victor I'm confident on the road now and all my fears have gone away. I took 15 lessons and successfully passed the full practical driving test.
b***6 (405Saturday, 24 September 2016 )
The advice Victor gave me in his lessons helped me pass my restricted license. He is a strict, but fair instructor that really knows how to help his students drive with ease. Highly recommended!

Would definitely recommend Victor. I had a few lessons to gain more confidence on the road and found him highly knowledgeable, helpful and patient.
m****v (7Thursday, 18 February 2016 )
Victor was amazing instructor. I haven't driven in 8 years and had a big fear of getting back behind the wheel, especially on the left side of the road where I have never driven before. It took me 5 lessons to regain my confidence and now I have already driven from Auckland to Rotorua and back :) Victor is patient, kind, informative and fun to be around with. He has my highest recommendations :)
h*******5 (125Friday, 5 February 2016 )
Thanks to Victor, I passed my driving test with no errors. He is a very professional & knowledgable, yet patient & calm driving instructor.

He helped me to become a safe and competent driver. Thanks Victor :)

x*****e (1Sunday, 1 November 2015 )
I had 3 lessons with Victor. He could explain and point out my main mistakes which were linked with my previous driving experience, and re-established them. He did it always with patience and delicate manner. In addition, he explained very clearly the structure of the full licence exam, main mistakes of people passing exam. Victor is the professional, experienced instructor. Strongly recommended.
