About AlphaPro

We aim to be the best driving school in Canberra and we are building our reputation with every student we train. A reputation for fairness and honesty, for doing things the right way. Not just training you for a test or to pass the log book assessments but to train you to drive properly and safely in everyday driving conditions.

We are passionate about training learner drivers to have all the skills they need to drive efficiently and safely. We're talking about training you to avoid accidents, how to recognise and anticipate dangerous driving practices and situations as you drive and how to react and stay alive. These techniques should be part of your basic driver training. With us they are!

Now about fairness. Some of our students have told us of bad experiences with other instructors. Complaints like only doing 1 competancy per lesson or making you do more lessons than needed by being too nit picking. We don't think that's fair!

If you can demonstrate the competancy to the official requirements, we can mark off more each lesson. We realise that learning to drive is already expensive enough in time and money, so we do our best to make you safe and certified as soon as possible. We don't charge for the Certificate of Competancy that you need to get your 'P's either.

We teach anywhere in Canberra. We can pick you up from home, school or work and drop you off to your chosen destination after the lesson. Just discuss it with your instructor when booking.

Our instructors

Charles Powell  Driving Instructor ACT

Charles Powell (Honda Jazz - auto. ACT accreditation)

Charles has over 30 years of everyday driving experience in city, suburbs and country situations. He learnt to drive in Sydney, has been 4WD driving in South Western Australia, outback driving in a Mazda 929 in the Kimberleys (North West Australia) and driving around Bali. He now drives in what he considers to be one of the most dangerous of all situations - daily peak hours in Canberra on the Parkway!

He aims to teach all his students how to drive to survive by 'reading' the road and other drivers, expecting the unexpected, keeping your calm and respecting other drivers.

Charles loves working on his cars and loves to drive them. His favourite is a 1989 Nissan 300ZX coupe and as often as he can he goes with other friends on outings with their 'Z's. He has learnt to drive safely on wet roads at an Ian Luff Defensive Driving School.

Please give him a call on 0407 470 817.

Thanks received

Hey Charles. Got my Ps. Once again just wanted to say thank you so much for all your help. I really appreciate everything that you did and will definitely recommend you to everyone!

Thanks a lot Charles for all your help and patience during driving lessons. Now I'm able to drive legally in Australia.

I had lessons with AlphaPro and I could not have been happier. Prior to commencing lessons I had contacted AlphaPro via e-mail to check avaliability and was immediately contacted by John who provided me with options, dates and times to fit with my request. He also provided me with a link to videos to watch.

My instructor was Charles who was an absolute delight. Charles recognised early that I had experience but I lacked confidence. He did everything to make me feel comfortable and become confident behind the wheel. I would recommend Charles and AlphaPro to anyone who asks about driving lessons.
