Instructor bio

Hi, my name is Rod. I began my career as a driving instructor in 2017. I am an independent business operator, when means that I have the flexibility to work where I want and when I want. This also helps when fitting in to a learner's schedule. I am a dynamic, friendly and professional driving instructor who is passionate about assisting students with learning and giving them all the necessary tools to become a successful driver. I draw on my previous experience when providing outstanding customer service and believe that is important in making the overall journey a smooth and enjoyable one.   As a ‘people person’, I thrive on the one-on-one interaction and enjoy being able to help others achieve their goals and get their licence. I look forward to assisting you. I will be overseas until mid May and look forward to resuming with my current and new students when I return.


Rod is an absolutely amazing instructor. I felt so much more confident after only 1 lesson and it just kept improving after every lesson. He is incredibly supportive and knowledgeable and has a way of making you feel at ease while still maintaining his professional boundaries. He truly cares about your improvement and success. There was never a dull or awkward moment.


Rod is fantastic. Patient, kind. Not pushy and a great teacher. He keeps things simple and straightforward and doesn't overwhelm with info but keeps you focused on the task at hand. Honestly, I initially went with Rod because he was available in my area, but I couldn't be happier with his work!


Rod was very patient and supportive of me in our lesson. He encouraged me and pushed me through the lesson and helped me when I felt anxious during the lesson. Highly recommend Rod as his teaching methods are very effective whilst helping me to push further with driving. Will have again!


Rod was a phenomenal instructor, just passed my test today after 3 lessons with him. Would definitely recommend him to any students willing to learn, great teacher, communicator and person. You will be well looked after.


Rod is a great trainer that made my son feel comfortable and confident. Rod took the time to explain the operations of the vehicle.I Highly recommend Rod to anyone looking to learn to drive
