Triple A Driving School has been a successful, family business for 42 years!
It all started in 1972 when the husband of a close friend passed away. All of a sudden the woman had found herself unlicensed with no husband to teach her how to drive. Sheila Burdett, as a good friend and a confident, licenced driver, offered to teach her. The lessons went well and Sheila soon discovered a new talent as a driving instructor.
After teaching a few more friends Sheila undertook training to become a qualified driving instructor; and so Eastern Suburbs Driving School was born. Not long after, Sheila's husband Paul joined her in the business as a fellow instructor and later their daughter Sarah too.
In search of expert advice Sheila & Paul headed over to the United States to research driver training. They bought back with them a wealth of knowledge, resources and new teaching methods. Eastern Suburbs Driving School eventually became The Amalgamted Auto Academy (AAA Driving School) because in those days, long before Google searches, AAA would be featured first in the Yellow pages!
We have trained several generations of our loyal customer's families and we take pride in the fact that we're one of Wellington's best known and longest standing driving schools. We look forward to having you & your family become a part of our story.
We believe that it takes more than just an I Endorsement on your licence to make a good driving instructor, which is why we hand-pick and personally train each of our driving instructors.
Our team is made up of patient, knowledgeable, understanding, open minded, fun, relaxed & professional instructors so that we can guarantee your lessons will always be of great value and enjoyment. You can rest assured that your Triple A instructor will NEVER yell or raise their voice and has been specially trained to handle even the most nervous of pupils!
