Instructor bio

Hi, my name is Michael and I have been a driving instructor since 2004. In addition to this, I was previously an Independent Assessor for the Victoria Taxi Department, this means that I used to test students when they apply for their taxi license using the same test criteria used by VicRoads. With my experience comes extensive knowledge of the requirements to pass your driving test and also the skills required to remain safe on our roads. I have a strong focus on creating a positive learning environment, keeping calm, encouraging my learners and developing confidence. I draw on many of these skills often . I provide guidance, tips and tricks for being a safe and capable driver that will last a lifetime. I believe that being a driving instructor is the most satisfying job. I love getting new students, helping them to gain confidence and to drive without making mistakes. It is also very rewarding when they successfully passes their driving test. My qualifications include: Certificate IV in Transport and Logistics, Certificate IV in Training and Assessment and I have been Working With Children Checked.

Reviews

A good friend of mine recommended Michael to me, and I started my very first driving lesson with him. Michael has been an amazing driving instructor. He’s great at explaining driving techniques and traffic rules with his sense of humour. I dare to say that I will remember his teachings for a lifetime because of his vivid explanations. I would like to say thank you to Michael, as I passed my driving test on 20/12/2019 in one go, with his car. I could not do it without his guidance. For those who are looking for a driving instructor, 10/10 would recommend Michael!

I am entirely grateful and thankful for Michael. He has completely molded me into a more confident driver. I was a nervous reck and was too scared to touch a car, however I now enjoying driving around and I thank Michael for his patience and genuine willingness to take me under his arms and ensure that I reach my goal with excellent results. I highly recommend him and I guarantee that you will not be disappointed.

Michael is such a great and knowledgable teacher. He’s very patient and always presents information in a descriptive but concise manner. I had the pleasure of learning to drive both automatic and manual transmission from him and I would definitely recommend him to all. Best driving instructor around!

Joel Santos

Michael was an amazing instructor, so patient and considerate and never yelled at me. He helped me get my Ps and I learnt a lot about driving on the roads that my parents didn’t mention. Would definitely recommend him and his driving school to anyone who’s looking to pass their driving test!
