Instructor bio

I have been a driving instructor for the past 7 years and have obtained a great deal of job satisfaction tailoring lessons to my students’ individual needs, teaching them to be good, safe drivers and teaching them what they need to know to be able to pass their driving test first time. My life before driving instructing was, and still is, as a Graphic Artist for over 30 years, 20 of which was in my office in Manly with up to 9 staff, and the remaining 10 years working from home. I have a wife and 2 daughters that all have busy careers of their own. Working from home I found the need for a new challenge in my life and the need for more interaction with people. So I become a qualified Driving Instructor, working for a well-known company for 3 years before deciding to start my own Driving School. Just to add a bit more fun and competition to my life, I have been a member of Seaforth Lawn Bowling Club for the last 17 years. My additional qualifications include: • Module 2 safer driving course instructor

Reviews

Steve is a delight to train with. To the point with great tips to help me make good driving habits second nature. Absolutely recommend Steve as a top instructor.

Mazza

Steve was the best! He provided me with great knowledge and skills to be confident with my driving. And made me feel calm and relaxed to be able to pass my test. Highly recommend!!

Stella

I highly recommend Steve as a driving instructor - he is an extremely motivating, reassuring and positive instructor and ensured that I was confident when I was sitting my test. I had a number of lessons and also booked a test package with him, and each lesson was very informative and helpful. I have had lessons with other driving schools/instructors and Steve was by far the most professional, genuine and knowledgeable.

Steve is a very good instructor and has a methodical approach to his driving lessons. Albeit, the challenge is that the location of lessons for me. Steve is from Northern beaches area. Travelling from Lower North shore to Northern beaches is a challenge and spending probably 10-20 minutes up and down, depending on the traffic conditions, is not a good idea. When the lessons are for 2 hours and Steve adding 15-20 more minutes to the session helps but if i want to book a 1 hour session, it is certainly not a win-win option for either of us. I cannot travel to Northern beaches by bus or train for each driving session. I wish there was a better option, but have to look for someone closer so i can get maximum time on the wheel. EzLicence should not be stretching the instructors area of coverage too wide. It is a bad strategy and leaves many dejected customers i think.

Steve is great! He was so calm and knowledgeable. He gave excellent direction and all the information I needed to feel comfortable and confident while behind the wheel. We was quick on the defensive driving and remained calm when a few busses came dangerously close to collision when cutting me off. It was great to have him reassure me of my driving skills. Really easy to get along with and have a good laugh while in the crazy Sydney city traffic. Thanks Steve!
