Instructor bio

Nice to meet you! I'm Mark. I've been a Sydney local for more than 30 years and a qualified driving instructor since 2000. I'm a member of the Australia-Chinese Driving Association and I've held all required insurances and have been Keys2Drive accredited since its inception. Before becoming a driving instructor, I worked in the engineering field as well as small business development. Interestingly, I became a driving instructor after helping my wife and many friends and family learn to drive. They all passed on their first go and the rest is history! My focus is on quality of teaching rather than quantity. I'm passionate about offering a personalised approach that considers the goals, learning styles and temperaments of learners. Those I have taught have often commented on my patient and easy-going nature, which provides a relaxed and comfortable environment so I can help equip learners with the skills and hazard perception to be proactive and confident drivers. It is immensely satisfying to see those I teach succeed, developing life-long skills to become safe on the roads. I'm constantly keeping up to date with the latest driving test requirements, test routes as well as the rapidly changing Sydney traffic landscape. Outside of driving instruction, I enjoy spending my spare time with family and friends. I am happily married and have an adult son and daughter.

Reviews

Mark was exceptional. He taught me the basics of driving and I was able to pass my driving test on my first test - beyond my wildest dreams! More importantly, he was able to provide me all the skills to become a safe driver. I initially had some anxiety when it came to getting behind the wheel, but he was so kind and patient with me from the get go. I could not recommend Mark enough.

Mark is an excellent driving instructor. I had previously held a license in China, practiced 5 hours under him and was able to pass on my first go. I strongly recommend him. After learning from him you'll be able to appreciate his good qualities

Roger

Mark is a wonderful, and professional instructor! He is extremely knowledgeable, and informative. All of his lessons were easy to grasp and understand. Mark's supportive, and patient nature made all the lessons stress free. He not only adequately prepares you for the driving test, but ensures you walk away with the skills to be a safer driver. Thanks to him I was able to pass my driving test on the first go! I strongly recommend him for new drivers, or even anyone who needs a few touch ups on their driving skills!

Christine

Before Mark I had put off driving for a long time and had never driven before. I practiced 12 hours under him and passed on my first go. He is incredibly experienced. The driving course for my test was one we were able to practice many times

Jessica

Strongly recommend Mark. He is able to explain things in great detail, offers great feedback and is always patient
