Did you know?

A child can be 30 TIMES more likely to be involved in a serious or fatal accident within the first 6 months of obtaining their probationary licence.

This is why finding the right driving instructor is important.

Meet Darren

Darren Smillie – Founder, X Factor Driving School in Melbourne’s Eastern Suburbs

You know how when teenagers and young people first get their licence, the chances of them being involved in an accident is 30 times more likely than an experienced driver, well I am the best chance your child has of staying alive with my driver education and skills program.

On March 29, 2010 (Through a Life altering event) I came to the realisation that the current learn to drive system is failing our children and is set up in a way that sees them go down the wrong path. Corporate greed has taken over, and diminished accountability is driving the power mongers to make reactionary decisions rather than proactive ones.

I work with teenagers and young people whose parents care enough to provide the best opportunity for their children to stay safe on the roads and not become another tragic statistic and have their lives torn apart.


Learning to drive involves:

  • Discipline
  • Patience
  • Understanding

Darren’s unique learning approach:

I connect with students at my East Melbourne driving school individually on a personal level taking the time to look at their motivations, gaps in road safety knowledge and the muscle memory needed to be a safe and great driver. Educating each person on the consequences of their choices whilst providing an accredited driving education that will see them not only pass their drivers test but pass the test of life.

My students are given attention and education that is sorely missing in most driving schools today.

Unlike many other driving instructors, I take the time to connect with each and every client to achieve an outcome that will see them not only pass their driving test but have a long and safe driving life.

Having seen first hand the tragic results that an inexperienced, bulletproof teenager can cause themselves, their family and the families of other innocent victims, I am committed to bringing driver education and my signature program to a wider audience with X Factor – Melbourne’s eastern suburbs Driving School.

So if you want to save a most precious life, your child needs to connect with X Factor.

Don’t wait, book your lesson today.
