At Harbourside Driving School we’re focused on helping you succeed. We love nothing more than hearing the excitement from our students when they pass their driving test!

Here’s some feedback from just some of our wonderful students.


“Such a wonderful and patient driving instructor! I would fully recommend using these guys. Big thanks to Andrew for all his help and encouragement.” – Leisha


“Very thankful to have chosen Harbourside Driving School. Thank you so very much Andrew, couldn't have done it without your positive support and confidence. From not knowing how to change gears, to passing my P's first try in a manual, you’re a legend!
I highly recommend Andrew to everyone. He is very easy going. He believes in you and helps you build your self-confidence in your driving skills. Freedom!!!! Thank you again.” – Veronica


“Harbourside Driving School has very calm and kind driving instructors who keep their cool through anything and everything! Also great for teaching new things and explaining something in a different way.” - Jade


“Had such a good experience to learn how to enjoy driving, as well as driving safely. Moving over from another country I was scared that I wouldn’t be able to learn the new rules, but Andrew helped me so much and gave me so much confidence and that’s why I passed my driving test on my first time! Extremely grateful for Harbourside Driving School.” – Haylie


“When I first contacted Harbourside Driving School, I found Casey to be polite, accommodating and helpful in booking my lessons. As I live a fair distance from Coffs Harbour, Casey worked out times and longer lessons so that it suited my individual situation. Each week she would send a notification reminding me of my lessons, which I found to be quite helpful.

For a couple of months, I went for lessons with Andrew each week and I have to say, I learnt so much and very much looked forward to my lessons. Andrew is very knowledgeable, experienced, resourceful, accommodating and a good guy to have a good yarn to. I found that he has taught me all the skills I need to know to be a good, defensive driver. I found it helpful to have supportive, constructive criticism as I feel I am a safe licensed driver because of it. Finally having my license is life changing for myself and my family, it is amazing! Thank you so much Harbourside Driving School and I would highly recommend them to anyone that is wanting to learn how to drive. – Laura


“A big shout out to Andrew at Harbourside Driving School. Your patience and persistence these past 4 months have been awesome and today it’s all paid off, I’m officially a P plater! Wouldn't recommend any other driving school. You will not be disappointed, Andrew is an exceptional instructor. Thank you Harbourside Driving School.” – Amber


“I booked a lesson right before my test and the instructor calmed me down so much and talked me through a lot of situations which really helped me refresh everything. Thank you so much for allowing me to have this great opportunity with you. My instructor was probably half the reason I passed, he calmed me down so much and made me feel safe in the car with someone I hadn’t met before, the whole experience was just amazing.” – Shana-lee


“I just would like to say a huge thankyou to Harbourside Driving School and Andrew for being a great teacher and for the wonderful lessons. I went for my P’s yesterday and passed on my first time! Thank you.” – Mickayla


“Andrew is an awesome and patient teacher and Casey is very polite. From my first lesson Andrew put me at ease and made me feel comfortable. He is an informative teacher and I'll be recommending him to anyone wanting lessons.” – Kristin


“From the time I contacted Casey to the end of 4 lessons with Andrew, they gave my son the confidence to get his P plates first go. Thank you both.” – Sharon


“I had several driving lessons with Andrew. I found him to be an excellent instructor. Having previously tried two other driving Instructors, I found Andrew to be much better than the others. I have already recommended Harbourside Driving School to a number of people. I could not have passed my driving test with so much ease and confidence without the lessons I received from Harbourside Driving School.” – Hannah


“Thank you so much to Andrew and Casey. Couldn’t think of a better company to go driving with. Always so helpful and friendly.” – Madeline


“My daughter had three lessons with Harbourside and she said they were great and made parallel parking a lot easier. The instructor was very calm. My daughter was also able to use the car for her P plate test and got them first go. Worth the money.” – Mary


“Harbourside Driving School is great. Andrew is a very good driving instructor, I wouldn't have passed if it wasn't for him. I'd recommend Harbourside Driving School to anyone young or old.” – Shane


“Having lessons with Andrew was fantastic, always positive and encouraging me. I felt confident and comfortable driving. Very highly recommended.” – Devy


“Andrew and Casey are very helpful and nothing is a drama. My son did a pre-test session with Andrew then went for his P's and got them first time. Thank you for wonderful service.” – Karen


“My daughter has had several driving lessons with Andrew when they have come to Narrabri in school holidays. She said he was very patient and encouraging. Thank you.” – Kylie
