Instructor bio

I became a driving instructor in 2013, and I love it! My previous career was in banking & finance then small business management. Training, coaching and development has been an important part of what I do, whether it be work or sport related. I am very proud that I have been able to help and guide many learners through the learning process to pass the driving test. My students have collectively achieved a high test pass rate. To me, driving is a life skill. If it is taught and learnt properly the safe driving skills and processes we go through are there for life. I’m told I have a relaxed, calm and patient approach to driver training. I work with each learner to ensure they develop the skills, understanding and hazard perception to equip them to be safe on the roads. My focus is on quality of lessons, not quantity. I work with learners and parents to develop an individual plan to achieve the goal of getting ‘that’ drivers licence. My goal for each learner is to become a safe, competent and confident driver. Safety behind the wheel is my number 1 priority. My qualifications include: Certificate IV’s in Transport and Logistics and Training and Assessment, Safer Driver Course facilitator and coach, and I hold all required insurances.


Thank you so much Simon for not only helping me pass my test smoothly but also changing my whole driving experience into a comfortable and confident one as a driver. When my partner booked me in with Simon for the first time, I wasn't quite sure only because I was thinking I would be more comfortable with a female instructor. Also I had lost almost my all interest and hope that I could pass and couldn't drive again with pleasure. After years of driving overseas with completely different rules and -driving at the opposite side- it had become my challenge that I couldn't overcome with two previous tutors (yes, one of them female and supposed to be very comforting and calming). From the first lesson, Simon helped me to relax and feel very comfortable easily to my surprise! I must say he is the most friendly and professional tutor I've known with his unique skills and intuitive which will almost make you think that "he can read your mind". He knows straight away what areas you are struggling just in one lesson. From the first day to last I passed and got my P plates, he was there with me with his all assuring support and positivity. He will tell you when you are ready and on the test day you really are ready. If you also think the most important thing is to trust your instructor in both personality and professionalism, Simon is the one. I already recommended him to my all friends struggling and feeling nervous about passing the test, which is a bonus along with gaining amazing skills you need as a confident driver in Sydney. Again, many thanks for giving my confidence back in traffic and help me have joyful ride again after years! It was a great pleasure to know you, All the best, Ozgur Kucuk


Thanks to Simon’s help, I passed my driving test on my first attempt. When I approached Simon, I was confident with driving but I had difficulties with manoueveres like reverse parking and wanted to learn exam technique. Simon’s explanations were very clear and easy to understand and he told me exactly what to expect from the test. On our last session together, Simon took me for a practice test which helped a lot in calming my nerves in the real thing! Thanks Simon!


My daughter told me it was good experience driving with Simon . I am just waiting for the time to book again Sharon for her driving since she is busy and mo eh concern as well thank you very much hoping to book again


My first 2 hrs driving experience with Simon was amazing .Simon is patient and very easy to talk to and has excellent knowledge and gave me the confidence that I needed to start driving.I am looking forward for my next lessons.I highly recommend him to anyone .Big thumbs up from me.


Simon is a great instructor! I took a 2-hour lesson on a day prior to my driving test. Got a few valuable tips and much-needed practice, which helped me to pass the test on the first go and confirm my overseas licence.
