Instructor bio

Hi my name is Mick, born and bred on the Gold Coast, I have had the pleasure of teaching countless people of all ages to drive safely and achieve their goal of passing their driving test. As well as being a driving instructor, my background as a surf coach and youth worker has given me the tools required to help others deal with their nerves and anxiety and to have you feeling relaxed, comfortable and competent in no time. I understand that we all have our own unique learning style and pace therefore I will adjust lesson plans to suit you personally. The end goal is to see you walk away with your license in your hand and a smile on your face with as little stress as possible.

Absolute Legend! One of the most chill guys you'll ever meet. Although I had most of my experience in an automatic, Mick was cool and explained everything in a really easy way to understand and learn. I would highly recommend to anyone wanting to learn to drive a manual. I'm glad I booked with him as he was great to chat with and made my test a breeze. Cheers for everything Mick, gonna miss you mate.

Mick is the absolute man! Most friendly guy in the world, incredibly patient and most helpful driving instructor on the Gold Coast. Not only made me feel comfortable learning but put my confidence driving through the roof, passed my P’s first attempt and I couldn’t have done it without him! Highly recommended to anyone who is learning manual! Thanks a lot Mick

An absolute legend! Mick is super patient and a great teacher, and if you're concern about reverse parking, he know exactly what to do to get you there. I can't stress enough how much of a great instructor he is. Thanks for getting me there Mick, we did it, mate! YEY

Mick is an amazing manual driving instructor - funny, relaxed, informative and great at teaching. I have been driving automatic for many years but wanted to upgrade to a full license. He was able to identify the problems I had with clutch control, and then did practice drills with me until I got it! Excellently organised lesson and tailored to suit my needs. Highly recommended.

I can't recommend Mick highly enough, he taught my son to drive. He actually let me sit in on one of the lessons and I couldn't believe how calm he was when I was jumping in the back seat lol. His professionalism and knowledge were impressive and it gave me great peace of mind to know that my son was in Micks capable hands.
