Learn To Drive the Modern Way

Having a driver’s license is a necessary requirement and it is important that you find a reliable and professional driving school/instructor to help you polish your driving skills in order to obtain it. 

Established in 2017, Modern driving school offers various learners’ driver’s packages to help you get a driver’s license. Modern Driving School’s founder and owner David Hashili, came up with the initiative of a driving school because he saw a gap in the market. David felt that he needed to start a driving school because his friends would always come to him asking him to teach them how to drive. Since he is a good driver and he enjoys teaching, he decided to open up his driving school and today Modern Driving School is one of the best-recommended driving schools in Namibia.

Most people start driving at a very young age, but does this really make one a good driver? With good driving comes experience and knowledge, which are gained from being on the road and studying from the learner’s guide. Oftentimes, people do not feel the need to sign up for driving lessons because they have been driving for a long while. Therefore, they assume they are good enough and they do not have to attend a driving school. 

However, driving schools do not only help to advance driving skills but also teach how to use the road. At Modern driving school, one is required to present a learner’s license to attend the driving school. According to Hashili their packages range from beginner, intermediate and advanced. 

“Some people who come to us are experienced drivers who know how to drive but do not have driver’s licenses and believe that there is more that they need to gain and that is what Modern driving school is all about,” Hashili revealed.  

At the moment, Modern driving school only offers lessons to people who wish to obtain a code B license, but they hope to advance to a code C very soon, helping students obtain their learner’s license is also a goal to be put in place for the academy very soon. With the pandemic in place, the business has not been going so well for the academy due to a decrease in sales as a lot of companies have not been looking to hire and most of the people have lost their jobs and could not afford to pay for driving lessons. 

“When NATIS closed down the business had to come to a standstill because there was no revenue.” Said Hashili.

Modern driving school does not only help clients acquire licenses but they accompany their clients to take tests. As we speak Hashili has accompanied some of his clients to Karibib where they are taking their drivers’ tests. If you are in Windhoek do not hesitate to sign up for driving lessons with Modern driving school at reasonable prices available for both manual and automatic.

The future looks bright for Modern driving school and very soon they will have offices in Oshakati, Gobabis and Rundu as that is where the main focus is at the moment. You can find their office at Continental Building, office NO. 206, 2nd floor. Or you can contact them on 0817000009.
