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 taught me the finer details of safe driving and commonly made mistakes. It is thanks to Marlis skill and experience, caring nature and sense of humour that I passed my driving test first go, scoring 111 (out of 100) points with no errors! I will be recommending Marlis to anyone wishing to become a safe and confident driver. Thank you again Marlis, happy driving!


5 stars doesn't express how amazing Marlis was to me and all my older siblings, she has taught 5 of us in total with every single one passing first time and scoring 100% (or above) she is not just an knowledgeable and excellent driving instructor but a kind and patient person, which made every lesson enjoyable and fulfilling. I can't recommend Marlis enough, she not just prepared me for the test but genuinely cared about my result, constantly reassuring me of my ability as the test approached, without her i know a first time pass would have been impossible.

I started out as a nervous, unconfident driver and actually had a previous driving instructor before a friend of mine recommended Marlis. Since then I've had many lessons with her. Not only is she very experienced in what she does. She is kind and was very patient, as I slowly improved and became a more confident driver. She also helps you become a safer driver through her technique of defensive driving, which I find extremely important. I'm so happy and thankful for Marlis! Would definitely recommend her to anyone!


Marlis is a great driving instructor who helped me to become a confident, assertive driver. She is very patient, knowledgeable, and friendly - she made the learning to drive experience relaxed and educational. Her sense of humour and laughter made all my lessons very enjoyable! Without her guidance and help, I would not have passed my driving test on the first go!


Marlis makes me very confident in my driving, thou still need a lot of improvement... she's very patient with me and always try to guide me all the way
