Instructor bio

My name is Nick. I’ve been a driver trainer for about 14 years. My journey started back in England where I was trained up before moving to Melbourne in 2008. I enjoy driving instruction for a number of reasons. I like the independence of it, the diversity of people that you get to meet and I enjoy the progression that is the learning journey, from complete novice through to a competent road user. Prior to driving instruction I worked as a rock climbing instructor (an activity that I am still involved in). While the skill sets might be different, the teaching methods are not too dissimilar. When I’m not teaching driving you’ll most likely find me at a climbing gym. I live in Blackburn in Melbourne’s East along with my wife, my cat and my dog.

I was scared to finally see my son behind the wheel, putting your trust in someone else is frightening. However we met Nick, who very quickly worked out Hayden’s personality and little quirks, which made the environment in the car very relaxing for Hayden. Nick was very clear with instructions, patient with Hayden and no request that I made was too much for Nick to teach Hayden. I did not want to take Hayden on a freeway first, so Nick did that for me, made me as a parent more relaxed and Hayden more confident behind the wheel. I highly recommend Nick as an instructor, so much that he is going to be teaching my daughter to drive.

While I was learning to drive with nick he was very calm and patient, he thorough in his explanations of what’s happening at all times when I’m driving, he helped me to remember all the little things such as mirror checks and head checks every time I drive, overall I had a positive experience with nick while on my L’s.

Nick gave both our children driving lessons. We were extemely happy and comfortable with his approach. His friendly, calm demeanor ensured his teaching was effective. He was patient and encouraging to both our son and daughter and has the ability to correct with clarity and gentleness. In addition to this we found his feedback and suggestions to us as parents very helpful. We would have no hesitation in recommending Nick to any learner driver.

I first met Nick Moore back in 2016 when I employed his services to teach my daughter to drive. Nick was fantastic! Very patient, quietly spoken and always calm. He was very knowledgeable about the road rules and emphasised road safety. My daughter who was very nervous about driving felt instantly safe and calm with Nick. A year later Nick instructed my son, my daughter’s friend and my foster daughter. He instilled in them a respect for the road and the necessary skills to pass their driving tests the first time and go on to become competent drivers. I would highly recommend Nick to anyone looking for an excellent instructor!

I was so excited and scared at the same time to get behind the wheel, sitting in the back seat watching my parents drive for years, I thought there are so many careless drivers on the road. I tired a couple of instructors which I did not gel with, then my mum came across Nick and I was so glad, not only did he make driving relaxing and instructions where clear. Nick was patient with me, told me it is ok to stall the car, don’t worry lets try again, don’t worry about the person behind you honking the horn because you not moving off from traffic lights fast enough. Those little comments make learning to drive more relaxing. Nick not once yelled, judge me, he only ever gave me confidence to keep trying. In the end I got my lience first time round and was very proud of myself and very appreciative of Nick. Nick will teach my sister to drive and I have recommend him to many of her friends.
