Instructor bio

I love being a driving instructor, it gives me the flexibility of working different hours. I get to meet different people from all walks of life and to pass on my years of driving experience. It is really rewarding to see the end results from their nervous beginnings, which gives both me, the teacher, and the student a great sense of accomplishment. My career as a driving instructor began in 2011. I had been a truck driver for 18 years, I became interested in people's driving habits and the lack of skills some drivers displayed. I decided to get my accreditation and teach people how to drive and more importantly, stay safe on the roads. Prior to this, I was a successful business man, starting a photographic studio at age 19, which quickly moved into film processing and then 3 retail stores by age 24. After marriage, my wife and I started a school photography, quickly becoming a market leader in that space. When we had children, life changed a little, as did the photographic industry. We sold our business and started new careers to enable us better work life balance and provide great opportunities to our children. I am married, my wife is a pharmacy assistant and we have two wonderful adult children. Our son is now a manager with an IT company and our daughter is a very successful teacher.

Reviews

Thank you Rocco! Honest and well-deserved 5-stars. You made me feel comfortable so fast, your feedback is kind and valuable, you teach in a subtle and consistent way. Not to mention you are very professional, yet super friendly. You go above and beyond for your students. Big recommend to anyone.

Saskia

Knowledgeable and friendly. Takes time to explain the little things and gives handy tips to make things easier to understand and put processes in place so you get the same result in different situations. For example 3-point-turn and changing lanes. Great stuff, highly recommend. Thanks, Rocco!

Rocco is a great instructor. He has this chill and calm way of teaching that would help easily anxious people to be relaxed on the road, and understand and remember the things that needs to be learned as a novice driver. He would also give tips and techniques with regards to the exam but more importantly how to be a safe driver on the road. What's best about him is that you can really feel that he is passionate about teaching someone how to drive which for me is really important.
