Hi, I am Mel and I became a Driving Instructor in 2004. I have been a driver trainer in the Moreton Bay Council since then, you could call me a local specialist. Previous to this, I held many positions within the government sector of NSW, one of which was a Driving Examiner. This puts me in an excellent position to teach students all that is required to ensure they are a safe and competent driver. I consider myself an expert in my field and am well aware of what the Department of Transport examiner will be assessing. I love being a driver trainer because it is really rewarding. I enjoy the challenges and will do what I can to achieve a positive result for my students. I take my career very seriously and understand that some students have had issues with driving. I like to make them feel comfortable and give them the positive acknowledgment and encouragement when gaining the correct skills. I ensure that my learners take the driving test with the confidence to pass on the first occasion. I have a son and currently a 18 month old standard poodle, which is like a baby! My additional qualifications include Train the trainer [Workplace Training] and Certificate IV Training and Assessment.
