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.
