Highly recommend Margaret Secomb as a driving instructor. I decided to book lessons with her after getting my third Learner’s license (having let my previous ones expire after a handful of lessons with family members). I was in my 30’s by this time and very nervous about driving, but Margaret proved a calm, supportive and effective teacher. She was thorough in her instruction and assessment, which is exactly what I wanted: my priority was to become a good, safe driver, rather than rush through the competencies. After all my false starts it was great to finally get my P’s in 2017. Nearly six months on, I feel confident on the road and am enjoying my newfound freedom!

Margaret helped me to get the full ACT Driver's licence. Having a full overseas licence and many years of driving experience, I narrowly failed my first Practical Driver's assessment. So I took a Learner's licence and booked 3 classes with her prior to the test. Because of her flawless instructions and patient / pleasant approach, I corrected my mistakes and refined my driving skills , thereby enabling me to successfully pass the test . I highly recommend her for Driving lessons -- for any skill level. Once again, a Big Thanks to you Margaret.

Margaret is hands down the best driving instructor I've come across in Canberra. She is extremely thorough yet patient when one is learning to drive, which makes for a cautious and capable learner or provisional driver. All of Canberra should know of ignite driving when looking for a driving instructor... she is THAT good at what she does!

Probably the best driving school I have heard of from anyone. Margaret is the most lovely and friendly person I know. She put up with my somewhat boisterous attitude throughout and made me into a wonderful driver. After completing the log book with Margaret, I feel confident in my ability to do everything that is required by the 23 competencies. Even afterwards, when the auditors hadn’t signed off properly, she was still really kind and helpful to me trying to work out what I needed to do. So thank you Ignite Driving and thank you Margaret for being so kind and supportive to me while I was learning to drive.

Margaret is a cheerful and unflappable instructor. She's a thorough, conscientious and meticulous teacher who instills confidence in the student and parents. From my experience, she doesn't rush a student through the process, not does she unnecessarily prolong it. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending her to any parent who isn't looking for shortcuts but wants confidence that a child has the adequate skills needed for a P-plate.

Margret is an amazing instructor and all around lovely person too! I really enjoyed her approach to both teaching and assessment. I've definitely gained so much more confidence in the car and feel really comfortable with all aspects of my driving. She explains things really well and gives great feedback!
