Instructor bio

Hi, I'm Rod. I am a professional driving instructor with over 30 years of professional driving experience. I operate an independent business, this enables me to offer the highest quality driving instruction.  I have a real passion for teaching people to drive safely and find it a rewarding occupation. I have had a lot of experience in assisting people from new beginners, to international licence conversions, to refresher lessons. I have taught learners from all different backgrounds and life experience. I am very thorough and diligent in providing a comprehensive and effective lessons to all my students. My learners complete their lessons with confidence, accuracy and most importantly with safe driving habits to last a lifetime. My philosophy is to ensure a smooth transition from Learners Permit to P's, aiming for a 100% pass rate in a relaxed, friendly, easy-going environment.

Reviews

Rod is an extremely helpful and clear driving instructor. After years & multiple attempts at the PDA, with Rods help I was able to pass. In the short time I was taught by Rod, I learned easier & simpler ways of operating a vehicle and improved my skills tremendously. Due to my biggest issue being nerves, I found Rod was able to make me feel comfortable and was very encouraging. I could not recommend Rod enough - If you are sitting your test, I strongly recommend giving him a call.

Rod is a great driving instructor. I was anxious to start lessons but Rod was easy going, which made me feel at ease. He gave calm, clear instruction and direction that I was able to follow easily. I would highly recommend him to anyone that is learning how to drive, and wanting to pass their PDA

Firstly, I’d like to thank Rod for everything that he has done for me. Rod is an excellent instructor who always pay attention to detail when it comes to road safety. My experience with Rod was astonishing as he taught me all the necessary skills not only to get my license but also to become a safe driver. He was always supportive, constructive, and easy to get along with in which made me feel comfortable as well as boost my confidence when driving. I rate him 10/10 with regards to my experience, I’d definitely recommend him!

After going through five different instructors and numerous failed PDAs, Rod helped me build up my confidence in driving by helping me to unlearn bad habits and teach me all the skills required to pass the PDA. Thanks to Rod I was able to pass my PDA at Midland with both an assessor AND auditor in the car, who both complimented my driving saying it was the best they’d seen all week. I couldn’t have done it without Rod’s help and highly recommend him to anyone looking to become a better, safer driver and pass their PDA.

He created a comfortable learning environment throughout the lessons, making the driving experience more pleasant. When learning a particular skill, he was encouraging and we would practice the manoeuvres as many times as I wanted to. I trusted Rod to ensure that he would stop me before I made any big mistake, so I was more confident while driving and making decisions on the road. He answered all my questions and walked me through mistakes as I made them. I believe these factors were critical in presenting myself as a competent driver, as I passed in my first attempt at my PDA. Arranging lessons was very easy. He maintained constant communication and was flexible to cater for my timetable.
