Instructor bio

Hi my name is Norberto Quinones, but you can call me Nobby. As a boy my dream was to learn to drive but this was impossible growing up in Cuba, it is a poor country where driving schools didn’t exist and owning a car was rare. One day my uncle came home with a car, I begged him to teach me to drive and when he said yes, I knew my dreams were about to come true but little did I know what I was getting myself into. My Uncle was very hands off and gave me very basic instructions. There was great freedom in this but I wasn’t well prepared for the future roads I was going to experience. Not long after that, I left Cuba to Central America where I converted my tractor license to a car license. This led me to practise and learn more advanced skills on my own via trial and error. Man, was this risky and it’s not something I would recommend as your life is on the line. In Australia, I have driven semi trailers & trucks with my HC License. With over 30 years of driving experience and a passion for driving and teaching, it is my goal to bring people’s dreams to life by teaching them to drive safely while having fun on the streets of Sydney.


I gained an abundance of confidence driving with Nobby Hi, I started lessons with Norm recently and he has made a difference in my confidence and my approach to driving. All questions are welcomed and he is very patient and understanding. Norberto is very nice, open and approachable, he is very calm and he gives you the confidence to start your career on the road.

Hi, I’m 22 years old and originally from England, I started my lessons with norm and passed my driving test on the first attempt, which was all achieved only with the help of norm’s excellent teaching. Norm was very easy going and flexible with the timing of the lessons which made it possible to fit them around a very busy 6 days a week work schedule that I had. I found that Norms teaching style helped me a lot he was very calm and collected and left nothing unpractised so I walked into my test with the confidence to pass and I did!! I will be forever thankful to norm for getting me through the test and giving my life a whole new freedom.

My class with Nobby was great. He's very knowledgeable, very patient and excellent at communicating his ideas and instructions. I took my driving test and passed on the first go! All thanks to you. Gracias maestro!


Very good and very clear. He was the best instructor I have had so far. I passed my test today and just want to say thank you for teaching me and be patient with myself in this learning process😉🇨🇱


Really friendly and easy to get along with. Good instructions that were relevant to my skill level. Definitely recommend Nobby for an instructor whether you are a beginner or just doing a quick refresher.
