Based on his experience, qualifications and an ability to develop an excellent rapport with those he teaches, John is often portrayed by his delighted students as “driving instructor of the year”, especially since they usually pass their test on the first attempt. These very successful results are due to John’s background in mechanical engineering, along with his having gained his first qualification as a Civilian Driving Instructor with The Victorian Police in 1976 and also the fact that he currently holds high qualifications in training and assessment. This has enabled him, as well, to work in special areas of driver training, with Occupational Therapists, helping physically and mentally challenged students. This lifetime of involvement in driver training has allowed John to develop high level programs in all aspects of driving, some of his teaching methods including imagery of animals such as snakes, birds and monkeys, which are used in explanations of specific skills. Using visual pictures for these demonstrations not only makes the lessons easy to understand, but allows the learner to speak about these verbal pictures, impressing their friends and family with what they have learnt and showing how quickly they are developing their on road safe driving. New learners and nervous starters quickly warm to this extremely creative, highly acclaimed, intensely entertaining instructor and mentor, with his forty three years of experience. If you are able to book a place on his calendar, you can certainly expect the very best driver training available today.
