Instructor bio

Hi, my name is James. To say that I have done a lot of driving would be an understatement. In my previous career, I was a courier driver for over 16 years. I worked in Sydney as well as country NSW, so have driven millions of kilometres! I am also a coach for the Safer Drivers Course. I am a very patient teacher as I believe that it is important. I find that not all people learn in the same way, sometimes I need to change the way in which I teach in order to get the best outcomes. It is super rewarding when my students (particularly those who start out not liking driving) make incredible progress, gain confidence and then start to actually enjoy driving. Originally from Ireland, my wife is originally from Sydney. We met overseas and I emigrated in 1996. We have two adult children. I look forward to helping you with all things driving related.


I had an amazing experience with James, he is a great instructor.. He taught me driving from scratch and yesterday I got my red Ps :).. I did all my driving with him since I had no access to car nor a full licensed person to drive with.. I can say that now I can drive confidently that I learned everything the right way.. Thanks James!


My sister and I have had incredible results and we have James to thank for teaching us both to drive safe and confidently. We would recommend James to all and are so happy with his service! :)


My daughter had a couple of introductory lessons with James that really helped to improve her confidence and gave us the head start that we needed.


James was a terrific instructor, always calm and professional. I passed the first time!
