Instructor bio

In 2016, I started my own driving school with my son Paul who was a VicRoads Licence Testing Officer at the time. Prior to this I had been in retirement for 3 years after holding a diverse range of roles such as Financial Controller, CPA qualified Accountant, Company Auditor, Shares and Real Estate. I enjoy being a driving instructor as I am able to help people, young and old, to obtain their driving licence. An important aspect of my role as a driving instructor is to raise awareness and positively contribute towards road safety, always teaching safe driving skills and habits. I get to meet people from all walks of life and share my hobbies and interests (basketball coach, tennis, chess, gardening, investing, etc.) My wife and I migrated to Melbourne, 35 years ago after being married for only 3 days. We have 3 children, and 3 grandchildren. My qualifications include: Certificate IV in Transport & Logistics and I am Working With Children Checked.


Sonny is very knowledgeable when it comes to road rules and he'll help you prepare for the exam to the best possible way he can during the driving lesson which is really worth every penny. Thank you for being patient with me and for helping me to achieve a perfect score on my drive test. God Bless ☺️

Best instructor out of my three. Definitely recommend! He’s a very nice and chill person, and when it comes to the road, he’s got you. Can’t go wrong with Sonny.


Sonny was very good! Even thou it was a short lesson because I was late for my lesson before the test due to public transports delays, he was very helpful! Thank you Sonny!! GBU

Sonny was very patient and I learned so much from my driving lesson with him. I will definitely recommend and book another lesson with him.
