At Professional Driving Academy you are treated well. Relax and have fun while being trained to the highest standards. Enjoy your lessons and enjoy a lifetime of safe, legal driving.



Reflective branding behind the vehicle warns other drivers that someone is possibly undergoing training. This protects us from a rear-end collision should you stall!



Electronic handbrake, hill-assist, park-assist, ABS, 6 air-bags, and best of all electronic power steering never goes tight and stiff during “yard work” training.

Dear Learner Driver,

Passing your driving licence is going to make a BIG difference in your life!

Do you want to be a new safe, advanced / defensive driver all your life, with a crash-free record? 

At Professional Driving Academy you will be taught advanced driving principles by a TETA Accredited Assessor and Moderator.

Why should you be trained in an unroadworthy, uninsured vehicle, which is not fitted with dual control pedals, by an illegal unregistered driving instructor who might run away with your money? 

At Professional Driving Academy of South Africa (Pty.) Ltd. you get to drive a brand new Audi Q3, which is an absolute dream to drive! It is fitted with 3 dual-control pedals which have passed German ISO standards. It has 6 airbags to keep you very safe too.
