Instructor bio

Hello my name is Katie. My husband, three children and I have been in Perth WA for 18 years, emigrating from the UK. Early on, I worked as a “temp” in Murdoch and Curtin business schools, before starting my career in Real Estate. I started at the bottom and worked my way up to achieve a Diploma of Property. My success as a driving instructor is due to my ability to make you feel calm. I am super patient and have a friendly personality, encouraging you to achieve by explaining the steps to get you there. Being comfortable with an instructor is the most important part, that connection is what is needed for you to take the steps forward. I can relate to individuals new to WA as I was once in their shoes. I’ve met and worked with all nationalities over the years and enjoy helping others gain their licence and freedom. There’s nothing like having a passion for what you do and I love being a driving instructor. I enjoy seeing others thrive, to achieve their goal of getting their licence and being a safe driver, it is just the best. I enjoy them seeking my advice and knowing that you’ve been right there with them is just amazing. The look of happiness on the face of someone that’s just passed their driving test is the ultimate. I’ve been driving for 29 years both manual and automatic. I am able to drive buses and also motorcycles. Helping learners become responsible drivers is my main priority, by giving them the knowledge and techniques to become this. Knowing you’ve achieved this goal for them is totally GOLD!

Reviews

I’ve passed Katie’s details to my friends & family as she is reliable, calm and friendly. We started with a keys2drive lesson with my mum sitting in the back seat, Katie was so amazing. Had a number of lessons afterwards then my mum taught me for a while and I returned back to Katie. She reassured me step by step and I was able to get to the end and now I’m a happy safe driver.

Appreciate all you’ve done for me Katie, Thankyou so so much I will never forget how comfortable you made me feel whilst learning. You are so calm in what I call well mad situations. You were my 3rd instructor and you got me to my goal and now I think different on the road, very aware of all around me especially other road users that need your expertise.

Huge thanks to my instructor Katie, helped me with overcoming my fear of sitting in the drivers seat. Learning to drive was a safe and positive experience, passed my PDA first time. Would recommend definitely. You’re the best!
