Instructor bio

I have been a driving instructor for over 12 years. I am one of only a few driving instructors in Sydney’s South West who instructs full-time in a manual vehicle. I am a strong believer in learning to drive in a manual vehicle as this skill allows you to drive any vehicle with confidence. I have a career background as a diesel motor mechanic and then worked in the print industry for 15 years as a independent print broker. I am truly passionate about road safety and my job makes me feel I am making a tangible difference in people's lives. I feel as if I am contributing to the objective of a zero road toll and that makes me proud to be a driving instructor. I enjoy connecting with young people and also people from all walks of life. It’s interesting and enjoyable and keeps me on my toes! I come from a large family and have a son who is only 2 years away from the learning to drive journey. Cars and motor sport are my hobbies, so driving instructing was a natural fit for me. Doing what you enjoy never feels like work.

Michael was incredible. He is such a friendly easy going bloke. Felt really relaxed and comfortable with him. Michaels way of teaching is so clear and easy to understand and follow. Michael showed that teaching others is more then a job and more of a passion. I highly recommend him to all.

Michael is a very good instructor, he was very patient with me, and knew how to control my nerves. I was very nervous with learning how to drive manual but Michael ensured me that everything was good and I was very comfortable will definitely be boking my future lessons with Michael
