Instructor bio

I became a driving instructor over 9 years ago after many years working as a mobile technician a job that involved many hours driving on Sydney roads. So I have more than adequate road knowledge to be able to teach. The decision to pursue a career as a driving instructor was not a difficult choice as my father in-laws and most of the 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, safely controlling your vechile but most importantly, learning to make safe, correct decisions to be safe out there. I enjoy having my own business and the freedom to offer personalised, tailored lessons to my students, as every learner is different. 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 so that I can pass all my knowledge onto my students. It is for all these reasons that my student pass rate is very 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!
