Instructor bio

Hi, my name is Gemma, I moved to Australia from the UK in September 2018 where I worked as a personal trainer for a little while in Adelaide. I have relocated to the Gold Coast permanently to continue doing what I love the most - teaching people to drive! As a professional driving instructor in the UK for over 5 years, I taught hundreds of people to drive ranging from ages 17 to 65 from many different walks of life. Everyone learns at their own pace, and in their own way. I have acquired many different teaching techniques and tools over the years to be able to tailor every lesson to the individual needs of each learner. Your lessons will be all about you and your preferred learning style! I like my lessons to be relaxed and fun at the same time, and ensure to have a laugh along the way. I don't just teach my student to pass a test, I aim to provide you with safe driving skills for life to be the best and most confident driver you can be. What I love the most about this job is when I see one of my students transition from a nervous and shy driver to a confident and safe one.

Reviews

I cannot thank Gemma enough for her patience, dedication and expert instructions. I must say that I am very pleased with my experience. She was very understanding of my work and childcare schedules and offered me the flexibility of Saturday lessons and even a marathon Sunday lesson to prepare me for my test! My lessons were always pleasant, with great conversation, fun music, plus Gemma was always enthusiastic about my learning. She helped me overcome my anxieties about driving, especially roundabouts ;p ! I truly feel that Gemma has done more than just prepare me for my driving test, she has also taught me how to be a safe and confident driver. Gemma I want to than you so much for your excellent service! Hands down, best driving instructor ever!!

Gemma is an amazing instructor who puts you at ease from your very first lesson. She is patient, funny and lets you learn at your own pace so you never feel rushed or pressured. She was so understanding about my schedule and ridiculously accommodating to make sure I had enough lessons to feel comfortable about my test. Thanks to her I passed first time! Gemma has helped me overcome my nerves about driving and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to learn. Thank you so much ! ;)

I passed my test first time with Gemma. She's a great instructor, easy going, highly knowledgeable and takes time to make sure you are confident with every aspect of driving before your test. Couldn't be happier, thank you Gemma!
