Instructor bio

I’ve been a driving instructor since 2015 and wish I had discovered this career decades earlier.  I enjoy meeting people from all walks of life and helping them to gain their drivers licence.  It’s a privilege and a pleasure to support students to develop from nervous beginners to safe and confident drivers who enjoy their driving experience.  For some it can be life changing as it provides independence and promotes self belief - it’s great to be a part of that. Students find me patient, persistent and easy going.  I aim to explain the how and why behind driving test requirements so that students understand why they have to do the things asked of them.  My aim is not just to get them through the test, but to equip them to drive well and safely for life.  I’m married with two grown up children. I try to keep fit and love the outdoors.

Reviews

Barry really helped me change my attitude about driving. I started out afraid of the wheel and very nervous while in the car. I would talk to myself while driving to calm myself down. He guided me from no confidence to a proud and eager driver. He is so gentle with his approach to teaching. Barry never raised his voice or cursed while I was in the driver seat. He did not lose his patience or say negative comments during our lessons as some other instructors have done in the past. Always he praised me for my accomplishments and he joked and laughed with me to make each lesson highly enjoyable. Soon I was holding my hand out ready for the keys to be surrendered over. I really believe no one else could have taken me through my driving test except for Barry. Thank you so much Barry!

Barry is a fantastic instructor! He will make you very comfortable and he teaches everything that you need to know with your driving. He will take you to where the assessor will take you when you do the test. I strongly recommend Barry if you want to pass your driving test on your first take!

Barry has been a really great instructor! Other than teaching me how to pass the practical assessment, he really ensures that I am careful on the road and that I am constantly looking out for my safety as well.

Dear Barry, Thank you for all of the driving lessons, encouragement and support - I never would have passed my driving test without you! You helped me make something that I always thought was impossible, possible - so thank you! Samantha
