Instructor bio

Hi, my name is Celine. Before becoming a driving instructor I worked at VicRoads Sunshine as a tester and customer service officer for nearly 8 years. During my time as a tester, I would sometimes get frustrated at the number of instructors that will bring their students in for a drive test who are not even close to being ready for it. This was one of the main reasons why I changed my career and became a driver instructor. I wanted to help those who really wanted to learn how to drive safely and build their confidence in being able to drive independently once they get their licence. As a driving instructor I feel most accomplished when I am able to help those who are completely terrified of driving or have a past traumatic experience that has stopped them from attempting to get their licence. The happiness they feel once they have achieved their goal is the best feeling as we did it together. My previous work experience with AAMI as a Motor and Home claims officer also helped me develop the skills of understanding each individual needs and having the patience to deal with all kinds of situations that may arise during the process. My background has also given me the ability to empathise with students where English is their second language. With having 2 boys age 12 and 15 I can relate to the emotions a parent goes through when their child goes out on their 1st lesson and the expectations they have on me as their child’s driving instructor.

Reviews

Celine has been very informative and straight forward since my first lesson. She pushes me to ensure I’m doing the right thing on the road to ensure I will pass my driving test. I can’t wait for my lessons with her to ensure I pass my driving test.

Celine is a really amazing instructor! Super patient and gives great driving advice. She gives off a very friendly and calming vibe which makes driving easy and stress-free. Overall, an awesome instructor and would highly recommend!

Phillip

Great instructor who teaches the necessary with precise feedback and instructions in a constructive way; Isn't needlessly harsh but also doesn't sugar coat faults and gives clear commentary on students' driving strengths and flaws. Would highly recommend her!

Emily

It was only my first lesson with Celine today, but she was absolutely wonderful. Her communication was clear, and she was very patient in teaching me new techniques to better understand my handling of the vehicle. She was calm and kind with a very lovely personality that gave me confidence in continuing lessons with her. I booked her right away to keep teaching me! I have had issues getting my license and have gone for the test many times with many various instructors and have failed, but I have a really good feeling from Celine in the assurance she gives me and feel confident in fine-tuning my driving until I am really ready for my test!

Janice

One of the nicest people I have met! She was so kind and calm, which made me feel relaxed and like I was prepared. I would highly recommend Celine as an instructor!
