Testimonials

"Thank you so much for all the help and hints you gave my son. He was really happy with Donovan's teaching style and gave him that confidence boost he needed to be able to sit and pass his Restricted test. We would both highly recommend." - (Lynda, mum of Alex) - posted 22 July 2018

"Our son really enjoyed learning from you, Donovan! Thank you very much for supporting him to get his Restricted license. You made the whole process stress-free and easy to handle with your cool, calm and relaxed approach. Looking forward to your help with his defensive driving course next. Anyone who needs a great learner experience needs to look no further!" - (Thilo, mum of Diakan) - posted 20 July 2018

"As a student, I don't have a lot of money. I'd been driving on my Learners for a lot of years, and two friends of mine (who are also students with no time or money) had strongly recommended that I contact Donovan about driving lessons. In the first three driving lessons, Donovan gave me helpful and ecouraging feedback to refine my driving skills and confidence, and also clarified road rules that I wasn't sure about. Donovan also took me on a mock restricted driving test around the course from the test location two days before my test, taking me through the exact process and smoothing out the last of my bad habits (I passed the real test first time).Training through Evolve is an excellent investment of my time and money, which I'll continue to do through to my full license test." - (Rebekah, Student) - posted 29 Jun 2018

Donovan is an awesome instructor! My previous driving experiences were pretty stressful, but his laid-back teaching style really helped me to relax and start to enjoy driving. He taught me a lot of useful tips and tricks, and he always made sure I was comfortable before we progressed to more advanced manoeuvres. Thanks to his guidance, I passed the restricted licence test on my first attempt. I highly recommend Donovan to anyone who wants to improve their driving skills and gain confidence behind the wheel."  - (Jennifer, Author) - posted 22 Jun 2018
