Instructor bio

Hi, my name is Ricky. I have been a driving instructor since 2016 with my motto being "Learn the easy and safer way". I really enjoy driving, having over 30 years of experience in Australia as well as overseas. I have driven in a wide range of road and weather conditions and have great deal of knowledge and experience to share. Sharing my knowledge is one of the most rewarding aspects of my work as I train learners to become competent, confident safe drivers.  My professional training is as an engineer, so my approach in teaching my students is very practical. I will often use illustrations and sketches during my lessons to help students understand and remember what I have taught them. I have found this to be very effective in facilitating the students’ learning especially for beginners. I can easily relate to people of all different age groups and backgrounds, to make them feel comfortable as quickly as possible. I am calm, patient and friendly and I believe that these characteristics are important when supporting others to learn new things. 

Reviews

Couldn't have done it without Kuya Ricky's patience, guidance and persistence! Hubby and I got our license on our first take! He goes above and beyond his duty. I remember receiving a txt from him recommending to purchase a lollie that helps ease nervousness and to not forget to take it before my exam! 😊 He's not like other instructors who are just after your money but genuinely cares for his students and honest and let you know straight away if you're ready or not to take the exam.
