Hi, my name is Derek. My previous career was in the Banking Industry and in IT Project Management. My career spanned across both the UK and more predominantly, Australia. I have a keen eye for detail and following processes, which has served me well throughout my career. I recently became a driving instructor, this change brings great flexibility and work-life balance. Originally from Edinburgh in Scotland, I learnt to drive a manual car at the age of 17. I have nearly 40 years’ experience in driving in various countries throughout Europe and in some extremely adverse winter conditions. I consider myself to be a very safe and courteous driver. As a driving instructor, I really enjoy the interaction with each of my students and seeing them improve in ability and confidence week-on-week. I would like to think that I can bring a wealth of experience and knowledge to keep NSW drivers safe on our roads. I first moved to Australia in 1988 and after some back and forth between the two countries, I have settled in the Lower Blue Mountains with my wife and our three teenage children over 11 years ago now. I look forward to assisting you on your journey to gain confidence and your independence.
