Instructor bio

Hi, my name is Alvin. I became a driving instructor in 2012, after a long career as a CNC programmer for nearly 10 years, writing the instructions for the computing module that is used to run CNC machines. I pride myself on offering high quality driving tuition. I am fully-qualified and a highly experienced instructor who will guide you through the learning stages, and when the day of your test arrives, you can be sure that you will have the necessary skill and knowledge to successfully pass your test. I have a real passion for teaching people to drive safely and find it a rewarding occupation. My aim is to teach you safe driving habits that will last a lifetime in a relaxed, friendly and educational environment. I also get to contribute to the community in such a positive way, by teaching people to be better and safer drivers. I am married with two young children.

I started my lessons as a beginner with the best instructor, Alvin. EXTREMELY patient, professional and great at his job. He knows when to give feedback and best of all, you'll always feel comfortable behind the wheel. I HIGHLY recommend him for anyone in search of a driving instructor, you will not be disappointed.

I believe that this is the best driving school in the city. Alvin is a very good driving instructor who is very patient and doesn't yell at you when you make mistakes. He gives great advices and his concept of teaching is very easy and understandable. He also gives great tips about driving in general and the test. Training was so in depth i found the test easy. Went through a few driving schools that did not tell me about my mistakes, but Alvin did and it made me confident, and a much better driver. Alvin cares a lot and shows it, he will get the best out of your ability and he is very knowledgeable. He helps you make great judgements and teaches you how to be 10 steps a head especially since i got my license in manual. He helps you read the road and drivers really good.

Alvin is very professional and patient. Being a first timer behind the wheels, my anxiety levels were on it’s peak during my first few lessons but he managed to increase my confidence and pass the driving test on my first try. Lessons were not boring and was fun. I was always exhausted after work and that’s the only time I have to do my lessons plus the roads were always busy so I have to be more focused but he was so understanding and patient. (Having a student that forgets his instructions and panics LOL!) Again, Thank you and best of luck!

After 4 hour pratice under Alvin's instruction I passed the driving test! Alvin is super patient and knowledgable. I thought I was skilled enough to drive in VIC after having been driven for 12 years in my country. But Alvin has correct tones of my bad habits and shared lots of tricks for passing the test. It is not only about how to pass the test but also abou how to drive safely on the road. BTW, I love his car which is easy to control and be parked into the bay. Thank you Alvin! :-D

Today I passed my drive test, but I couldn't have done it without Alvins guidance. I have been having lessons with him over the past few months, he was patient and explained everything clearly and made it easy to understand what it was I needed to work on and how to achieve it. I now feel I can drive confidently and safely and couldn't have done it without his help, thank you!
