Instructor bio

Hi, my name is Sam. I have been driving for many years and a qualified driving instructor since 2010. The early stages of learning how to drive are very important as they lay the foundation to build and develop the proper techniques. Often when the correct learning foundation is not formed, bad habits are developed and become challenging to overcome. Working with me, we will focus on the correct techniques as well as road safety to ensure you are a confident driver for life. My teaching style is to discuss and identify the areas which you are struggling with, then provide guidance, tips and tricks to simplify them. We work together in a calm and friendly environment that supports positive results. I am experienced with international licence conversions and have helped many people from different countries to learn the criteria to pass their Australian licence. I look forward to working with you.

Reviews

Despite having my (multiple) Ls for over a decade I hadn't been behind the wheel in Australia for over six years. I had a few instructors (through other driving schools) whom were so negative and unhelpful I wasn't keen to get behind the wheel again ... until Grace introduced me to Sam. Sam is a patient, informative, calm and incredibly encouraging! One very proud Ps student right here!

Thanks to Sam, my teacher for my lessons, I was able to pass and achieve my red P's. Sam was patient and we drove everywhere that was busy - Hahahaha He was always on time and his directions were plain and simple. Thanks Sam!"

Sam’s biggest virtue is that he is patient. He will let you work through your failures and make sure you are following the basics correctly. I have been driving for 14 years and wanted to transfer my overseas license. Sam modified the lesson hour to understand and help with my shortcomings. I recommend Sam.

I also want to give my instructor Sam a big thankyou for helping me. He's a person with good knowledge and knows very well what he is talking about. I'm very happy. Thanks again.

Sam was my instructor who taught me with all the patience in the world. From day 1 I felt comfortable, n I knew I was in the right hands. I cleared my test in one go!
