Instructor bio

I have over 20 years of experience in the transport industry working as a driver, transport supervisor, work place health and safety coordinator for a major transport company in Perth. In that time I developed skills in training and induction across all aspects of transport and logistics. I decided that by becoming a driving instructor I could make a "real" difference. My focus is to teach the correct skills and encourage positive driving attitudes that may, one day, save a life. I am friendly, calm and patient to ensure that I get the most out of each and every one of my learners. Whether you have never driven before, experienced but want to update your skills or looking to convert an international licence, I can help you to achieve your goals.

Reviews

Barrie is an excellent driving instructor with a keen eye and highly refined technique. He is very helpful for any skill level of learner, and has a multitude of tips and techniques to ace a driving test. When it came to my driving test, Barrie made all the difference. I highly recommend him!

Declan

My son has expressed a lot of nervousness about driving and Barrie has just been the best for him ! He’s developing a plan on how to best achieve his licence and Barrie gives great feedback to me as a parent, and my son comes back encouraged and informed after lessons

Joshua

Barry was a big help to me. He has given me tips to follow by which has made my driving a lot easier. Barry is straight to the point and will not let you get away with bad habits. which in return will make you a better and safer driving. I would highly recommend.

Kayla

Constantly monitors and provides feedback, gives constructive criticism in a way that makes sure you are actually learning, whilst providing a friendly learning environment. Does not let you get away with bad habits and helps you break them

Elijah

Ended up finishing my lessons and passing with another instructor, but for the few lessons I had with Barrie, he was a firm but fair instructor. Would suit a distracted student. Think of your high-school teacher. Nice man.
