About Shoalhaven Driver Training

One of our mates getting down and dirty at Cooma for the KOSCIUSZKO AUTOMOTIVE MONARO STAGES Rally. Proud to be able support our local sports people.

With over 45 years driving experience in both Car, Heavy Vehicle, and Motorcycle it seemed time to pass on that experience in training people in Driver Safety.

As a parent and Grandparent Ross James  understood the challenges and anxieties of letting your young family take control on the road. It is this understanding that lead him to start Shoalhaven Driver Training
