Instructor bio

Hi, my name is Rafi. Over the years, I have gained a lot of driving experience both here in Australia as well as internationally. Prior to being an instructor, I have worked as a taxi driver which has given me a vast understanding of the Melbourne road network and road rules. I am calm, professional and really enjoy meeting new people. I love teaching and try to make it as fun as possible. I relate well with others, particularly young people, which comes from my 20 years working in high schools as a Lab Technician. In terms of driving, I train drivers to be safe and confident in any situation. I believe in a proactive approach and also combine defensive driving techniques into my training. It's important to set goals and work towards them, this is what I do with each learner to help them to succeed. I enjoy knowing that I am changing people's lives. The excitement when my students pass their driving test is contagious and super rewarding.

Reviews

Rafi was an absolutely fantastic instructor. I was a confident driver when I began with him but his knowledge and fine tuning has taken me well beyond. I would 100% recommend Rafi to anyone I know who's is in need of lessons.
