Instructor bio

I worked at a school with kids with disabilities for 10 years and loved it.. however I decided to make a change when all my favourite students went  to high school. There were many other changes happening and training as a driving instructor seemed like a natural progression. I became licenced in 2012. Learners often comment that I am kind, patient and friendly. I try to use humour when I can, as it can relieve a tense situation and its good to learn to laugh at yourself. I am a firm believer in making mistakes as they are necessary to learn, as long as you learn from the mistake. During my lessons I will provide reasons and explanations as to certain manoeuvres, why they are a good or bad decision. If I can provide you with a visual image of the problem, I will as this helps immensely. Generally speaking, once learners have a clear understanding, they rarely repeat the same mistakes. I have been doing this now for a while now and most of the time I love it!

Reviews

Joanne is really easy going and calm. She made my son feel at ease with his driving even when he was just starting out. Really good teacher. Highly recommend.

Dylan

As an adult learning to drive a manual Joanne is heaven sent. I felt comfortable and 100% satisfied with what I've achieved thus far. Joanne's approach and style of teaching is memorable and instructions clear and simple. Thanks again Joanne.

Violet

She was amazing, she helps you enough with everything but you are still in control. She is friendly and a real world person. She got me my license in no time and I would highly recommend to anyone. She can answer any question and knows how to get you ready for the actual test. Best teacher I have had.

Luke

Really thankful that Joanne is still teaching! She taught me what I know and I’m so happy to have found her again for my brother. He also enjoyed the lesson with Joanne.
