Prior to becoming an accredited driving instructor, I had been a university teacher for 10 years and then a Real Estate Agent since 2001. The skills I have gained in both of these roles have really set the foundation for my independent driving school. The teaching aspect, which comes naturally to me, allows me to help others & encourage them through the learning process.Then there is the strong customer service and communication element which is pivotal for being a good Real Estate Agent as you need to assist people through some of the biggest decisions in their lives which has now become a strength of mine. I take teaching very seriously, emphasising the importance of one's own safety as well as of others on roads.Teaching road rules & safe driving skills and consequently send safer & sensible drivers on the roads is my passion. I ensure to make the whole process of teaching a hassle free and friendly experience. As a result, all this helps my business grow through referrals from my past students. Also it is important to look past just getting driver's licence and more towards a lifetime of safety & awareness on our roads. Personally, I am happily married since 1985 and we have two sons who are university graduates working in the corporate sector along with their partners. My wife works in Sydney City Trains who has been my support and sounding board throughout my career. Apart from that, I love socializing, community work, exercising & running.
