Instructor bio

Instructing in both auto and manual vehicles since 2004 has provided me with a lot of knowledge and experience on our roads. My main aim is to transfer my wealth of knowledge to you as my learner and do my very best to ensure that you have safe driving habits to last you a lifetime. I have had the opportunity to teach people of all different backgrounds and walks of life, it is part of my work that I enjoy immensely and find extremely rewarding. I try to create a comfortable and positive place for you to learn and I am quick to establish rapport and make you feel at ease. Together we will go through the requirements to pass the VicRoads driving test as well as techniques and strategies to keep you safe on the roads well into the future.


Iva is an excellent instructor who was attentive, patient and committed to getting me a successful driving test result. Her driving lessons were extremely helpful not only to brush up my driving skills but also to learn more about safe driving. Iva explained everything well and was open to answering questions beyond the course itself. She prepared me in such a short time (3 lessons) for the test and I passed my VicRoads driving test at Heatherton first time. She also helped me to be a better driver by teaching me how to drive confidently. I'll recommend Iva to anyone! I couldn’t have done it without her support!

Shanaka Ransiri

A very experienced instructor. No long-winded theories and got to drive in the first lesson immediately after simple explanation on clutch, mirrors etc. Illustrious diagrams are easy to understand and very helpful especially for parking. I passed the driving test in one-take


My driving lessons with Iva were very helpful and led me to becoming a better driver in the lead up to my test. I was taught many tips and tricks that helped me immensely with my driving and specifically parking, to which I still use today! Without these lessons I wouldn’t be the driver I am today, as her advice and tips helped me so much!


Iva is highly skilled and able to impart her knowledge to the learner. She is friendly, approachable and understands learners and parents anxiety. I highly recommend Iva and thank her for teaching us.


Iva is an amazing instructor. Very experienced and with only 3 hours with her I passed my test. I felt very supported and encouraged and did not encounter anything I was unsure of or Iva hadn’t covered with me prior to the test.
