Instructor bio

I love cars, I enjoy driving and am passionate about it. I enjoy a good challenge and consider myself adventurous. I have recently completed my qualifications to be a Driving Instructor. I consider this to be advantageous as my skills, knowledge and understanding of the road rules is up-to-date in line with today’s expectations. I thoroughly enjoy teaching different types of students including novice learners. I felt a great sense of achievement when I got my license and it gives me great satisfaction to be instrumental when others achieve this milestone. My goal is to make the experience stress free for learners and help them become safe drivers with the confidence to drive without help. I'm fun-loving, enthusiastic, young and confident and these make me a great instructor. In addition to this, being a mother has strengthened my character and taught me a lot of life lessons, including the value of being patient, diligent and caring. I apply all of these characteristics when teaching my learners how to drive. Previously, I worked as a merchandiser in the textile industry India before taking time off to start a family. I have two school-aged children who keep me super busy. I also volunteer at a school and at a local convent to raise funds for charity as a way to do my part for the community, which is really important to me.

Reviews

I found learning driving from Maria a stress-free experience. Maria is a great driving instructor who's very knowledgeable about the road rules. She is friendly, cheerful and confident. I would highly recommend her to anyone starting to learn driving.

Maria is an excellent instructor, and she has helped me to become a safer driver. Though I have been driving overseas for years, I did not feel confident driving in Australia. After just a couple of lessons with Maria, I feel much more confident. I found learning from Maria very pleasant.
