I mean 98% pass rate speaks for itself. I passed first try and it was a breeze, definitely recommend him to anyone. Plus, he helped me quit smoking. Guess he's a life coach as well.

Emanuel is an excellent instructor. He is extremely calm, composed and not phased if you make an error- I found this very useful because it kept me calm as well and I knew how to react if an unexpected error/ hazard occurred. This is especially helpful if you are giving your test at Carlton because there is a lot going on e.g. cars, trams, cyclists, pedestrians etc so it be overwhelming and staying calm helps you think through it and work out the safest route. I’ve been driving with Emanuel on and off for about a year and it’s been great. When I first started, we would chat about general life and that helped with the nervousness. Overtime, I got more and more comfortable and confident. He’s very good at giving instructions, he explains the road rules well and ensures you are being safe. Would definitely recommend. Thanks for helping me get my license.

I have been working with Emanuel over the past few years. He has not only taught me how to drive but has helped me become a more attentive and reliable person. His calm and relaxed demeanour has helped me overcome my fear and anxiety of driving. I never thought it would be possible to learn manual but Emanuel gave me the support I needed to succeed. Thank you so much!!
29 Apr 2022
If you want a calm, experienced and nerve easing instructor, I 100% recommend Emanuel. I did my lessons and test with Emanuel. He takes the time to understand his student and gets the best out of us without a doubt. I had some bad habits with a manual car but Emanuel was quick to help me override them thankfully. I honestly couldn't recommend Emanuel highly enough.. Thanks again good sir.

I completed my driving lessons and my test with Emanuel and couldn't have asked for a more supportive instructor. He was constantly calm and gave me great options and extra learning methods when I struggled. He is very easy to communicate with and worked around my difficult schedule. I have just passed my test and couldn't be happier with the service I received here and will miss our chats driving round and round Carlton :)

Emmanuel is simply THE BEST driving instructor! Fantastic communicator, gives clear instructions and ensures I understand and feel comfortable. He has helped me find confidence behind the wheel. I have and will continue to recommend him to friends and family as he is absolutely stellar! I genuinely could not be happier to have him as a teacher and will miss him once I’ve passed my test!
23 May 2020
Emanuel is an excellent teacher, very patient, gave me a lot of confidence on the road and we had good chats while driving! I was able to take the test with the same car and he was next to me as in the lessons so it lifted the pressure off it a lot, would totally recommend!
22 May 2020
I really recommend Emmanuel as an instructor, he is really patient and a good teacher.I was really scared to drive as I never drive before. Because of him, I made unbelievable progress in a short amount of time.
03 Oct 2019
A huge thank you to Jose of Motor Oz Driving School! He was incredibly kind, knowledgeable, and supportive. He made the lessons stress-free, relevant, and patiently went over parts of the lessons that I needed more guidance and practice on. This driving school is accessible, experienced, has very reasonable rates, and more than that- they genuinely have your best interests at heart. I passed the exams and I can't recommend them highly enough!
23 Jan 2019
It has been really fun learning with Emanuel. He has made our lessons light hearted and relaxed. He is always exactly on time, flexible with scheduling classes and I felt like he was very invested in my development as a driver: for example asking lots of questions about my out-of-class practice. Emanuel helped me track the growth of my skills with a little round up and reflection at the end of each class. He was honest but encouraging and realistic about when I was ready for the test. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him, if you're lucky he might reach you Spanish simultaneously!

I was learning driving for almost more than a year with a failure count of 2. My reflex was very poor and not able to hold my nerves. Then, I found Jose (or Joe) a friendly companion to have as a guide and instructor. He coached me to learn my mistakes and educated on the current trends on driving and road incidents. He educated me on how a society would benefit by safe drivers. I learned a lot more life skills along with driving. He is a cool, well experienced, respectful and considerate for people. After passing the test with him, I miss his companionship. I recommend anyone to take lessons from him. True value for your money, family & life.
01 Jan 2018
Emmanuel is an excellent and calm teacher with a great attention to detail. Before I started my lessons I was incredibly nervous about driving and had been too scared to drive on busy roads. He helped to build my confidence as well as my driving skills, and I am now able to drive in a range of conditions. I have seen dramatic improvement in my driving over the past few weeks.
09 Dec 2017
I had never driven before I booked my first lesson with Emanuel and was very nervous about learning to drive - both in the city and in a manual car. Emanuel is not only a fantastic instructor who always takes the time to explain things in detail until I understand, but I think just as importantly makes me feel comfortable and safe driving. He's very friendly, funny and calm - always calmly explains my mistakes, not like horror stories of angry instructors I've heard from friends. I have my test booked for next week and am confident about my driving now thanks to Emanuel. Couldn't recommend him more!
08 Nov 2017
I took a few lessons with Emmanuel for refresher and also to familiarise with Melbourne traffic rules and road condition. Emmanuel is very alert on the road and he explains everything patiently. I would recommend Emmanuel for Manual cars.
03 Jul 2017
Very thorough teaching. Extremely knowledgeable and experienced. Friendly and nice staff. Accommodating with times.
23 May 2017
I feel so much more confident after my time with Emanuel. I was originally very nervous about learning to drive manual around the CBD, but that has completely changed! Emanuel is clear, calm, and very easy to learn with. We go over everything, particularly parking which I used to be very hesitant about. Best teacher I could ask for!
26 Apr 2017
Previous, I preferred the famous RACV until my friend told that Motor oz is cheaper and better. Oh my gold, my friend is right. My instructor Joe is caring, patient and professional. I improved fast in his lessons.
08 Mar 2017
I’ve succeeded in my first attempt to pass in the driving test and thanks for Emanuel. He is a great instructor and knows how identify and work your needs on. Emanuel’s general-culture knowledge, ability, calmness and experience make the difference in his lessons. Knowing about your previous driving experience helps him to guide his learners to the best way. Giving myself as an example, Emanuel has planned for me more lessons that I expected, but at the end I realised he was right and am pretty sure that if I had taken the number of lessons that I expected, I wouldn’t have succeeded in passing the test. Thanks Emanuel and Motor OZ for this memorable experience!

I failed my test in Ireland. I passed it first time in Australia with Motor Oz Driving School! I had tried a few different instructors previously but was delighted I found Emanuel. What I liked about him was that he was very calm, very clear in his instructions, didn't over-complicate things and didn't fluff anything up. The lessons were also great value, something I found hard to get if you wanted a decent instructor. I will definitely be recommending Motor Oz Driving School to everyone!
03 Dec 2016
I have never driven a car before, now I can drive thanks to the best driving instructor ever: Emanuel! I feel confident to be on the road and I am learning very fast. Emanuel is a very experienced instructor. He is patient and very good at giving clear explanations and commands. I am going for my driving test soon and I feel confident I will pass thanks to my lessons with Motor OZ driving school! Additionally, Emanuel speaks more languages: English, Spanish, Italian.. If you are from a Spanish or Italian background do not hesitate (I am Australian/Italian), Emanuel is the instructor for you! I strongly recommend Motor OZ driving school excellent value ($170 for five 45 min classes) to become a good and safe driver. Beatrice, Kensington.

I would definitely recommend the Motor Oz Driving School. (Also a shout-out for Joe: the BEST instructor!) My instructor Joe is very patient, kind, and professional. A lot of fun to have the driving lessons with. The advice he gives is really beneficial and practical. I really am glad I chose the Motor Oz Driving School and I'm grateful that Joe is my instructor. When you learn from the master you know you are golden:) And the price is very reasonable!

Going for my P's very soon and Emanuel has been great. He has made the process incredibly easy and eased into harder driving well - initially didn't think it'd be so easy to jump into a manual!
28 May 2016
Just had my first lesson today and it was great. Jose was very patient and he explained everything well. He kept going over the areas where I was nervous or too hesitant and even where I was too overconfident until I had a good feel on my abilities. Feeling good about the drive test now.

Motor Oz Driving School is highly recommended to anyone who needs to learn driving. The lesson fee is exceptionally reasonable. Driving instructor Jose is a great and very experienced teacher who has helped me, a nervous student improve my driving skills in a short period of time and see improvement every time I have a new lesson. He is calm, clear on his instructions and teachings and most importantly he is extremely patient and funny, making me feel very safe and happy in his lessons. He is also great in trying to accomodate my requests on lesson dates and times. Thank you Jose for being such a great teacher and I am glad I have found this driving school.
10 Feb 2016
i passed my Driving test today , i owe this to the Jose who was my instructor. he is really funny ,pleasant, nice most importantly he teaches the right way of driving. I had lost touch of driving after i moved to Melbourne.i took 5 classes before i went into test . he thought everything one has to know to drive safely and efficiently. Jose keeps you calm and less nervous when ever we are driving and would always oblige if we need to work on something. most importantly i was not confident of passing the test on the test day. Jose made sure he removes nervousness and there you go i cleared in my first attempt. I am glad i went through motor oz driving school,its worth every penny. Thanks a lot Jose Regards Raj
03 Jun 2015
Really pleased that I passed today, no worries at all! "Jose was a really personable character that made me feel at ease from the outset, his style kept me relaxed in the sometimes stressful driving environment. When it came to the day of my test he made sure I was ready and confident in my own abilities. I would recommend Jose to anybody looking to pass their test, in particular older drivers like me that like to get to know their instructor." Thanks again Crag Crag Carrick Fitzroy

18 Mar 2015
My instructor, Jose, is totally calm, patient and encouraging person. I was always a nervous driver but he managed to get me out of that. I actually feel comfortable on the road now, which is something I never thought I would say. It took me just 3 or 4 classes to pass the driving test (P) from the first time. I would recommend Motor Oz Driving school for everyone and especially for those who thought that being a driver is not their cup of tea :)
16 Mar 2015
I am very happy that I have chosen Motor Oz Driving School. I thought that learning with a manual car would be harder, —I needed a manual licence for work— but when I started to learn with Motor Oz Driving School, I was pleasantly surprised. The instructors were very patient and experienced, not only was much easier than what I thought, it was heaps of fun and, very rewarding to feel how much I was learning every lesson. I would recommend Motor Oz Driving School to anyone and everyone.

I used Motor Oz Driving School for driving lessons for my learners. He is very helpful and clear in his instructions. I love how he lets me think for my self instead of doing it all. His very patient when I started off which made me feel comfortable with him. I would recommend him to anyone who just got their learners permit and is looking for a great instructor.
