Instructor bio

Prior to becoming a driving instructor, I was a Warehouse Supervisor. I have been self-employed since 2009 and proudly independent, operating both a taxi business and a driving school. I became a driving instructor in 2004 as it is something I’m passionate about. The extensive driving experience I gained in my taxi business has been invaluable when teaching my learners. Being on the roads all the time, taxi drivers are exposed to all kinds of traffic, road conditions and weather. I have seen the good, bad and the ugly side of our roads. I can't emphasise enough how important being a good driver is. I love helping people to drive safely, from beginners to those wanting refresher lessons. I enjoy being a mentor and teaching safe driving habits to last a lifetime. I have a partner and am very involved with my local community. My qualifications include: Certificate IV in Transport and Logistics, Working With Children Verified.

Reviews

As someone that's tried to learn how to drive on and off for a decade I was looking for a patient teacher and I found that in Nick. He's very calm and knowledgeable, and he’s curated and created awesome online resources to help you learn between lessons. I passed my test on my first go and am very grateful for all that he taught me.

Nick has a good calm spirit and a good instructor. He also has sent me some extra material I can rely on to practice by myself which was very helpful.

Passed in 1st attempt with Nick with full points. I had failed earlier 2 times. But Nick is one of the best instructors and he encourages you and checks you all the time. Love this method of teaching. He is an amazing teacher, i’m glad i selected him. Thanks a bunch Nick.

l have to mention that i was extremely lucky to meet such an excellent driving instructor.. Nick.. He was coaching me the driving skills in every single points/aspects with various sub-materials such as key pointing Learner drivers "must-know-driving skills" with videos, to pass the test..which he sent them to me over MMS after every driving lessons.. so i could have watched them after every lessons at home.. which helped me enormously.. specially when i watched them 2-3times.. i could have done "image training" by myself.. and he also instructed me on the spot while i was having lessons and made critical or frequent mistakes.. we have stopped the car and Nick visualised me the situations i have to acknowledge before the test with miniature toy cars in the car.. And there are much more to mention about his instructing skills and methods from his long time instructing experiences.. With his help, i have passed the driving test today, with the first attempt, with the mark 98/100.. I was proud of myself when the diving examiner said "you have passed the test well above the average.. great driving".. and i remember i said "thank you thats all from Nick (my driving instructor).. and the examiner said "no doubt.. well done" I would not hesitate to recomend Nick to any Learner drivers.. Thank you so much Nick..

Awesome teaching! Videos, acronyms, sayings helped me a lot in understanding the procedures during driving. Huge development from the first lesson to the very last lesson. Emphasis on safe driving definitely helped
