About Us

Barkly Driving School are innovators and leaders in driver education, we have grown from a single car organisation in 1951 to one of the largest and most respected Heavy Vehicle Driving Schools in Victoria. With well over 200,000 people taught to drive, it is little wonder that Barkly Driving School is now considered by many as the professionals in the business.

In today’s changing business environment Barkly Driving School has always been able to stay ahead of its competitors through its commitment to quality driver education.

There is never more than one student in a truck. You won’t find groups of students crowded into a truck for observation time, as with many truck driving schools.

We believe you learn to drive by driving, not watching. At Barkly the focus is on you. We value our students, their safety and their training. Barkly does not compromise this to save money by training several students in a truck. Your training is too important to us. Contact us to talk about the Barkly difference.

Barkly Driving School policy guarantees the performance of its instructors. As true professionals we offer you driver training at its best.
