About Ringwood Driving School

Gene Hilton, the man behind Ringwood Driving School, wanted a challenging and rewarding career and has now been a driving instructor for over 20 years.

He finds it deeply rewarding to see his students pass their driver’s licence test as he understands what a big deal it is and the amount of hard work that goes into mastering proficient driving skills.

He is committed to teaching with integrity and wants to see his students drive properly and safely, so he delivers more than just basic driving instruction.

Our Beliefs About Driving
Ringwood Driving School believes in teaching you to drive on three levels:

  1. Providing Instruction
  2. Teaching the mechanics and theory of driving
  3. Explaining and covering Victorian Road Law

By providing our driving program in this way you not only learn how to pass your driving test, you also learn the skills to become a safer and more confident solo driver.

Mature Learner Drivers
It can feel daunting to get your driver’s licence as you get older, however Ringwood Driving School supports and encourages older learner drivers, as well as nervous drivers, to learn how to drive and to obtain the skills necessary to be a confident and competent driver.

Teenage Driving
One of the most exciting and liberating moments as a teenager is getting your driver’s licence and not having to rely on your parents to drive you around anymore. However, from a parent’s point of view they need to know that you haven’t just been taught to pass a driving test, but that you will be a confident and safe solo driver.

Ringwood Driving School believes in teaching with integrity, ensuring teenager drivers are proficient, sensible drivers with a wealth of practical skills.

“I was once sitting in the car with two children, teaching them how to drive….and then it hit me. I’m looking after this parent’s child, their pride and joy. I then realised the responsibility I had to keep these children safe on the roads and deliver them back to their parents.”
– Gene Hilton, Driving Instructor
