Galmatic was founded by 2020 Telstra Business Women’s Awards finalist Eleni Mitakos. After years of teaching and owning vintage cars, Eleni created Galmatic because she saw the need to provide women and young drivers with essential skills, to maintain their cars and make going to the mechanic less confusing and intimidating.
Since 2007 we have taught over 100,000 teenagers a year how to feel more confident behind the wheel. As parents to teens we know that learning to drive is both exciting and liberating for them. The freedom of grabbing the keys and going for a drive is a major milestone.
However unlike when they took their first steps walking, we will not be there holding their hands when they are driving on their own. Countless nights of staying awake until you hear the car in the driveway lie ahead!
At Galmatic we hope to help you alleviate a few of those fears by teaching teenagers how to care for their car and learn some basic car maintenance skills.
At least we can help you with one less worry – they won’t be stuck on the side of the road with a flat tyre and no idea what to do!
Thank you for allowing us to be a part of the journey.
