Graham Widdon

Graham is the owner of Drive 2 the Max Driving School based on the northern suburbs of Brisbane. Graham is qualified to teach manual and automatic vehicles, but specialises in manual for Drive 2 the Max.

Graham is also a defensive driving instructor and corporate driving assessor.

As a former Paramedic Graham saw all too often young lives wasted on the road. During his many years as a Driver Trainer for the Ambulance service he developed a passion for teaching driving with excellent attitude, focussed awareness and precision ability. Those two sets of experiences from his Paramedic service motivated Graham to create a driving school with a focus on driving for life, not just to get a licence. Drive2TheMax is dedicated to protecting life, “crash proofing” learner drivers so that they see all their tomorrows. Graham doesn’t just teach driving skills to help young learners get their licence, he aims to develop in every learner driver who comes through his hands maximum attitude, maximum ability and maximum attention. http://www.drive2themax.com.au/
