Instructor bio

Hi, I am Shirley. I have over 20 years of customer service experience incorporating my wealth of knowledge to provide a professional but caring approach to my students. I believe this is a key contributor to the remarkably high success rate of my students. I have been driving for over 30 years, this driving experience includes trucks, tractors and various high speed cars. My aim is to provide quality service while teaching all types of students to become safer and confident drivers for life. I love being a driving instructor and I believe it is because of this and my dedication to helping others that has led me to successfully help many students of all ages obtain their P’s. Learning to drive for the first time can be very stressful. However, my warm and calming personality creates a comfortable environment for my students. I am very patient and understanding which always puts my students’ nerves at ease, allowing them to concentrate on what matters. My goal is for you to have a positive driving experience and look forward to our next lesson together. I am originally from Johannesburg, South Africa and have been living in Australia for the last 12 years. I am married with two children and ofcourse my two fur babies complete our family. I have a great enthusiasm for cars, I love Grand Prix! If you’re interested in having a positive learning experience with an approachable teacher then please do not hesitate to book a lesson with me today.


Shirley is an amazing driving instructor. She took me for my first lesson and I was extremely nervous but she was so kind and patient with me. Now i’m over 60 hrs, feeling so confident with my driving and could not have done it without her. I’m still continuing driving lessons with her til I get my one hundred hours as it is worth my money. I absolutely recommend Shirley to anyone starting to learn how to drive as she makes what seems challenging a breeze!


Excellent instructor and a lovely person - I cannot recommend Shirley highly enough!!! She has been an incredible teacher and helped me immensely! As a mature learner (32 yo) I had a lot of self doubt and apprehension about starting to drive but Shirley was so kind and reassuring in helping me overcome my fear 😃 Very patient but also clear and direct with any instructions or corrections!


Huge thanks to Shirley, the best driving instructor out! She helped me so much with my nerves and was so kind and complementing every step of the way! She helped me as an older driver pass my P's test with flying colours! Would 11/10 recommend her to everyone xxx


I got my red P's though Shirley on my first go. Best driving instructor I've ever had! She is very professional, thorough and breaks down everything in a way that is very easy to learn and remember. Would highly recommend!! 10/10


My daughter spoke about nothing else from the moment I got home. She got tips, guidance, honestly and gained a lot of confidence and stability from Shirley. We love her and will actually book a further 3 lessons. Couldn’t recommend her any higher. She’s great.
