Say Hello to Marylou and Yes to driving success

Marylou Bruys was born and raised in Whakatane. She has been a driving instructor and educator in the Eastern Bay of Plenty for 15 years, covering Whakatane, Opotiki and Kawerau.

I get great satisfaction from the many different aspects of my job, particularly enjoying the wide variety of people I teach.


I feel the need for driver education has never been greater and I can teach you concepts that will assist you to drive safely and confidently.

I pride myself on my approachability and always enjoy feedback from my students.

Member of New Zealand Driving Instructors Incorporated

Marylou’s Driving School offers a comprehensive range of driving services from learner licence training, lessons for your restricted training, defensive courses and full licence training, and with my caring attitude I can put you in the drivers seat faster than you think. I run a monthly DEFENSIVE DRIVING COURSE which is a prerequisite for many jobs now. This course takes just 9 hours but can instil a lifetime of safer driving strategies for any driver young or old. A great way to up-skill your driving.

If you are stuck for a gift how about a voucher for a driving lesson especially to introduce safe driving practice for the new driver. I am a community representative on the Eastern Bay road safety committee and a Member of THE NEW ZEALAND DRIVING INSTRUCTORS INSTITUTE and I am Registered assessor and am always up-skilling myself to keep up with any new Road Rule changes.

If you want a driving instructor who has endless patience and a calm temperament, and who will inspire confidence; give me a call on:
