“driving support and assistance to our client group”
Western Adelaide Domestic Violence Service (WADVS) is a non-government organisation funded to work with women and children who have or who are experiencing domestic violence in their relationships. WADVS support women by offering crisis accommodation and outreach support and this is inclusive of risk assessment and safety planning.
Recently, Tony Loughhead has introduced himself to WADVS offering driving support and assistance to our client group.
“patience and ability to work with people with a disability”
Tony, has a careful nature, patience and ability to work with people with a disability, who have often experienced issue with failure in the past.
His ongoing support and assistance to our clients has been greatly appreciated.
“service to disabled students”
I have referred many of my Learner Driver Theory students to Tony Loughhead for practical driving lessons. His years of experience in this field make him ideal for teaching the practical side of driving. Once they have passed the Theory Test I have had no hesitation in recommending Tony to help them through the next step in achieving their full licence.
His company Instinctive Driving has offered a service to disabled students in particular where no other was available. I would have no hesitation in recommending his service.
“Tony often goes above and beyond”
Workskil Australia Incorporated (Workskil Australia) is a community based not-for-profit organisation that aims to increase the sustainable social and economic self-reliance of individuals and communities experiencing disadvantage. We do this through the provision of a range of employment, community, youth, health and training programs in South Australia and Victoria.
I am the Regional Operations Manager for Workskil Australia in the Southern Adelaide region.
I would like to acknowledge the work Tony has undertaken for Workskil Australia in the provision of driving instruction services, particularly with our more complex clients who have had some significant behavioural and learning barriers.
Tony has built a great rapport with those clients who would otherwise have struggled to engage in any kind of learning. Tony often goes above and beyond for Workskil Australia’s clients, and not only assisted with gaining their licence but also offering support in other areas.
“The Course was excellent!”
I recently enrolled my daughter Kyri into the Driver Dynamics defensive driving course. She had finished a block of driver training with Tony from Instinctive Driving, had passed her VORT and felt ready for her “P’s”. I wanted to make sure she understood all the things that can go wrong on the roads before I was comfortable letting her drive alone.
The Course was excellent! Kyri had previously done driver awareness courses through school but she said that the practical component of the course really opened her eyes to what she needed to do to be safe when driving. It made her not only understand what her car was capable of, but also a great deal about stopping distances and object avoidance. I strongly feel this course saves lives and I recommend it to all drivers, especially those just starting out so that all those bad driving habits never have a chance to develop.
