Instructor bio

Hi, my name is Colin, I have been a driving instructor since 2015 and am qualified to instruct in both manual and automatic vehicles. I enjoy teaching different people and adjusting my training based on the way they best learn. It is rewarding when a learner gains the confidence and skills and begins to enjoy driving. It is also very satisfying, teaching learners a major life skill and to give them all the tools to ensure they are a safe driver for years to come. Prior to becoming a driving instructor, I worked as a NSW Police Officer for 15 years. During this time I was a NSW Highway Patrol field training officer . In addition to this, I am a qualified Facilitator of Module 1 and 2 of the Safer Drivers Course (NSW), a qualified rehabilitation driving instructor and [until late last 2018] a First Aid Instructor, just to name a few. I am married with 5 children and I feel that it is important to give back to the community and educating and helping others is how I do this.

Reviews

Colin was great. Adam really enjoyed his first lesson and is eager to go again. As a parent I was really happy that Colin took the time to give me some feedback on Adams lesson and some constructive guidance for myself to use when out on the road instructing my son. Thank you.

Adam

Colin is a great instructor- he has extensive knowledge on all aspects of driving, and is able to communicate it clearly. He is able to teach all the driving skills required with an emphasis on safety. During my lessons with Colin, I have improved greatly and look forward to being a confident and skilled driver.

Great teacher, he doesn’t come down hard and always explains things in a way you can understand, he is very polite and extremely helpful

Most patient instructor I have come across, very clear and thorough in his instructions! I will be recommending him to all of my family and friends who ever need an instructor.

Jordan

My first lesson with Colin was amazing , if you are a nervous driver like myself and are wanting someone with a lot of patience this is your guy , the whole lesson was comfortable and informative. Would highly recommend to any Lerner driver!
