About Us

Ian “Watto” Watson started his Truck Driving School in 1989 in response to the high numbers of people in the North Brisbane area wanting to get a truck license with the help of a local truck driving school.

Since then, Ian and his team (including his three sons Haydn, Brendan and Luke and grandson Declan) have trained thousands of students to not only get their truck licenses but more importantly equipped them with valuable defensive driving skills, knowledge and confidence.

After 30 years in the business, on the 5th of December 2019, Ian Watson sadly passed away after a long battle with cancer. His sad passing coincided with the purchase of his family business by long term employee Simon Gugenberger and the new owner took the control on 22nd December 2019.

Today Ian Watson’s Driver Training Centre focuses on helping people get there heavy vehicle licences. The class of vehicles IAN WATSON’S can help you with include:

We aim to provide a goal-oriented, student-centred, beneficial, efficient, enjoyable and an encouraging learning experience for every customer. The underpinning principles are safety, defensive driving and cooperation with other road users.
