Instructor bio

Hi, my name is Richard. After teaching work apprentices, sporting colleagues, friends and family to drive, it ignited a passion and I definitely have a talent for it. I am also a soccer coach as well as a cricket coach, I can't help but to help! I have had extensive driving experience through my work and sporting interests, travelling thousands of kilometres every year. As a driving instructor, my goal is to transfer my knowledge and experiences to new drivers to ensure they are safe drivers for a lifetime. Overall, I love being a driving instructor because the satisfaction of seeing the smile on my students face when they have just been told they have passed their test. Knowing that I have contributed to their new found freedom, a milestone in their life... it is something special. Previously, I was a boilermaker for over 30 years. My partner and I are foster carers and really love to give back to our community.


Although I have had my licence for many years, I had been missing out on job opportunities because I could not drive a manual. Every attempt I had made was dismal. When I contacted Richard he assured me that he would be able to help me. The tips he gave me and the simple calm approach meant that I was finally able to take off and change gears in a manual without bunny hops and stalling gears. After 3 lessons I felt consistently confident to go it alone. I highly recommend Richard.


Richard was calm and patient. He explained everything clearly. He made me feel at ease with driving. His knowledge gave me the confidence I needed to drive safely on the roads.


Richard is calm and easy going. Makes learning to drive fun and easy. I recommend him.
