I'm Margaret O'Connor - the instructor of Rockhampton Driving School. I provide value for your money and customise each lesson to your level of experience.

You have the option of manual or automatic cars  which are also available for hire on test day.

My cars are dual controlled and this gives you the confidence to learn in a safe and controlled environment.

It's not about just 'passing' the test. It's about developing skills and safe driving practices for life. 

So, invest in your road safety with RDS!



A few words from past students about their experience at Rockhampton Driving School ...

I was keen and ready to drive from the moment I got those Ls! After my sister had gotten her Ps on the first go with Margaret I knew Rockhampton Driving School was the place to go! Starting out with Margaret not only gave me the confidence to carry on with manual but the awareness to be comfortable enough to do so. Her teaching style couldn't be more suited to her profession! I always felt safe with her in the passenger seat. Couldn't recommend her enough!

Eleanor Smith

I have had many lessons with other instructors, being an anxious driver, but I have never felt confident enough to take my test. I felt Margaret's patience and awareness of road safety (from many years of teaching experience) allowed me to increase my practice level to competently pass my test, which I am proud to say I have done!!!!  This has been a lifelong goal, and I will always be grateful.

Melissa Anderson

I was a mature age learner driver that struggled with the idea of driving but Margaret's calmness and confidence put me at ease. Margaret's tuition and insightful driving anecdotes made it easy and enjoyable to learn. After 5 years of driving, Margaret's driving hints are still a big help to me in being safe on the road. I never thought I would be able to drive but Margaret made it possible and I will be forever grateful to her.

Darryl Martin

Rockhampton Driving School took the stress out of driving for me! Margaret, through her patience, gave me the confidence to be out and driving on the roads. I started as a complete beginner and was given the skills to be a safe driver - in a manual car - by the time I took my test. I couldn't have asked for a better experience learning to drive - thank you Margaret!
