Hi there, I’m Wayne, owner operator of Epic Driving School Cairns. I am known for my calm, fun and relaxing teaching style. I believe that knowledge is the key to successful driving. I understand the feelings that some students may experience when learning to drive for the first time. The nerves, anxiety and the driving test. With a proven track record and unsurpassed customer service, I will tailor each lesson to suit your individual requirements and needs, giving each student the attention they require, to give them the confidence to start their driving journey to getting their licence.

Wayne is the perfect driving instructor, he is very calm, has patience, knowledgeable and friendly. I highly recommend learning to drive with him.

When I was a learner driver, I was incredibly anxious, and Wayne was so calm, supportive and really put me at ease. He made learning to drive a really fun experience and was always friendly and had a positive attitude. He is a knowledgeable instructor and was always very clear with his instructions. I became such a confident driver throughout my lessons with Wayne and he really helped me believe in myself.

Wayne is a great driving instructor. From my very first lesson, he created a relaxed yet professional environment. Not only is he very friendly and personable, he has the knowledge and experience necessary to enable drivers to be confident and safe on the roads. I would absolutely recommend Wayne whether you’re a younger or older learner.

Wayne is the best!!! He knows how sad I was when I failed in my first test (because I was so nervous and did stupid things that made me fail). He cheered me up and explained to me what I should do next time, in the situation I failed. The second test, before test, he help me again with all this rules. And now I made it, I passed my test!! Thank you so much Wayne.
