Instructor bio

Hi, my name is Marlis, I have been a driving instructor since 1994. I operate an independent business servicing the Northern Beaches of Sydney, this enables me to offer the highest quality driving instruction to past and present clients. At the beginning of each lesson, we will establish some clearly defined objectives to ensure you gain the most from your training and acquire the correct skills you need to feel confident on the road. Through my experience, each student has unique needs, therefore we tailor every driving lesson to the learner's requirements to ensure a friendly and comfortable experience, every time. I love what I do, each day I am rewarded as I take great pleasure in training my students to get on the road.


Marlis is a very cheerful and pleasent Instructor. It is a real pleasure to learn from her. Marlis provides good information and instructions with visual clarification using pictures or by giving practical demonstration.


Marlis is a great driving instructor. She explains things clearly and is very patient. She encourages you throughout the lessons and she’s given me confidence in driving. I know that because of her I will be a safe and good driver.


I'm a nervous, unconfident driver, Marlis is so friendly, knowledgeable, patient and funny. She also helps you become a safer driver through her technique of defensive. I'm so happy and thankful for Marlis! Definitely looking forward to the next lesson with her!
