Instructor bio

Hi, my name is Shane. I am a driving instructor and have been doing so since 2011. I focus on delivering lessons in a manual vehicle, some people view learning to drive a manual car as being difficult, I believe it’s all in the way you are taught. My extensive driving experience has helped me to educate my learner students, by providing them different skills and ways of approaching difficult problems. Not only am I able to pass on the basics, but also explain how our driving needs to be adjusted in different road and weather conditions. I try to keep it as simple as I can. My previous roles were varied, from truck driver, to labourer, senior foreman and a national manager. The skills I gained through these experiences along with my ability to relate to people from all walks of life enables me to get the most out of each learner. I am super patient, taking the time required for my student to learn all the information needed for being a safe driver. Being a driving instructor gives me satisfaction, teaching someone a skill they will have for life. The best moment is when they use all their learning to pass their driving test. I love seeing their happy smiling faces.

Reviews

I would recommend Shane to anyone wanting to learn how to drive. He was the most fantastic instructor. He is patient, stress free, a highly skilled driver and hes great at building your confidence as you go through the process. I already knew how to drive but only auto, so had manual driving lessons with Shane. Can't thank you enough for being so lovely.

I had multiple lessons with Shane, I started of barely being able to drive manual to being able to drive, shift gears fluently, perform hill starts and drive under pressure, I passed my test with 95%. I highly recommend Shane for anyone who is wanting to learn manual, As a whole very easy to learn from and talk with.

My instructor Shane was so great. He helped me get over my nerves and taught me all I needed to pass my driving test. I would definitely recommend him to anyone that is going for their license or a driving lesson.

I want to thank Shane for brushing up my driving before the driving test, teaching me the easiest way to do reverse parking and not fail it and coming with me to my driving test today! I got my P1 thank you, Shane!
