“You’ve got to be definite and confident in the car.”

These are the words of her father that most stuck with Julie Clasper while working for his driver instructing school. And it is her motto when teaching drivers at Wemco Driving School.

Not many people in any industry can boast the experience Julie has. She has lived and breathed driving, driver instructing and chauffer driving for her entire working life.

Her father, Ken Clasper, founded and operated the Wemco Driving School out of Geelong in the ’80s and founded the Wembley Driving School before that in 1963. Julie was working for him from the moment she was old enough to get behind the wheel.

It is this experience that helps make Wemco, now run by Julie, the perfect place for any potential drivers to learn the ropes.

Julie says her passion is to teach clients how to drive safely, whereas many other instructors will only teach the course of the driving test and are satisfied if you pass your test.

“I always want to see my pupils walk away knowing they’ll have solid skills out there on the road. Plus I like to feel that they will be safe as well,” Julie said.

Julie believes Southbank and the city are a fantastic place to learn to drive, because you have everything you could encounter here.

“City tuition and freeway work is so important. Then we’ve also got the trams and plenty of traffic. It means drivers need to be alert at all times, which is the best way to learn.”

Julie is an accredited Keys2Drive instructor and said she offered tuition to any level of driver.

“Obviously we look after beginners, but we also provide a service for refresher drivers, overseas licence holders and students wanting to gain more confidence on the road.”

One thing can be assured, if you have driving lessons with Julie you’ll come away feeling definite and confident in the car.

To book a lesson you can call Julie on 0450 563 180 or head to Wemco’s website www.wemcodrivingschool.com.au
