Instructor bio

Hi, I am Phillip. I have had over 20 years of experience in the transport industry working as a small business owner and contract logistics in Melbourne. In that time, I developed skills in training and induction across all aspects of transport and logistics. I decided that by becoming a driving instructor I could make a "real" difference. My focus is to teach the correct skills and encourage positive driving attitudes that may, one day, save a life. I find this role very satisfying and rewarding. I am friendly, calm and patient to ensure that I get the most out of each and every one of my learners. I enjoy assisting people from varied backgrounds to obtain their driver's licence and improve their road skills. I especially enjoy coaching young people to become responsible and safe on our roads. I am married with 3 teenage daughters and a dog. I have worked in the local community for many years, contributing across both basketball, as a coach and football as a volunteer. I also enjoy a jam session and am a professional musician. Whether you have never driven before, experienced but want to update your skills or looking to convert an international licence, I can help you to achieve your goals and targets.

Phillip helped calm my nerves and concerns about learning to drive. I was quite nervous at the start, but at our first lesson he stepped me through the process and explained all my questions. I found him very patient and approachable. He was full of encouragement which was very important to me. Thankyou and I love your car. It’s so easy to drive and feel comfortable in.
