Instructor bio

I became a driving instructor over 6 years ago after many years working as a mobile technician a job that involved many hours driving on Sydney roads. As I have a young family, being an independent driving instructor allows me the flexibility to ensure I have the right balance between my work and my family. The decision to pursue a career as a driving instructor was not a difficult choice as my wife’s father and my uncles are all driving instructors, they of course also encouraged me to become an instructor. In addition, I have always been passionate about helping and training people. I strongly believe driver training is a mixture of understanding the road rules, learning to make excellent decisions and safe vehicle control. I enjoy having my own business and the freedom to offer personalised, tailored lessons to my students. You get a real sense of satisfaction and reward as you teach and watch your student progress from a position where they have no or limited driving skills to gaining their licence. My focus is to build confidence through patient and clear driving instruction. It is for all these reasons that my student pass rate is high.


I would like to extend my sincerest gratitude to Van for his expertise, patience and kindness in teaching me the proper way of driving. You have been a very awesome and reliable instructor. I have definitely learned a lot! I cannot thank you enough for the support you have shown me before the test. It really boosted my confidence. I will never hesitate to recommend you to anyone who is looking for a best driving school. More power to you and thank you very much!
