Instructor bio

I am both a former Victoria Police officer and former authorised VicRoads Licence Tester. As a Police Officer, I learnt from Police driving instructors and have experience driving in many hazardous situations, often extreme. I know the road laws and I am able to unpack this extensive driving knowledge and awareness for road safety to new learner drivers. It's my belief that I have attained a real ability to teach and I maintain a calm, relaxed environment in the training vehicle. I hold a Certificate IV in Driver Training Instruction and a Working with Children Permit. As a police officer, I learned to quickly establish a connection with people, using understanding, patience and great listening skills. All of this translates really well into my business. I am quick to establish rapport with my learners, make them feel comfortable and relaxed behind the wheel. Together we determine the key focus of our lessons and tailor them to what they need to develop the most. Working as a licence tester has given me a comprehensive understanding of the requirements to pass your driving test as well as be a responsible and safe road user. It inspired me and showed me the importance of a qualified driving instructor. I thrive on meeting new people, love the diversity this work brings, getting to meet people from all walks of life and different experience levels. I have had great success in teaching those who suffer some challenges, whether that be anxiety or autism. It is always super rewarding when my learners pass their test. I’d love to help you too.

Reviews

We engaged Ross for some lessons prior to our daughter taking her driving test. We really appreciated that he only booked her in for the number of lessons that she required. With Ross’ help she was able to get her licence first try. I highly recommend Ross if you’re looking for driving lessons.
