Instructor bio

My name is Christo, most people call me Chris. My past work experience has been in retail working in the meat industry and the travel industry. Working in face to face occupations has helped me develop a customer first attitude. About 7 years ago, I felt I needed a change in my working life, not an easy decision. I was the supervising driver for my daughter and just before her P plate test I decided she needed some professional tuition to see if I had missed anything while teaching her. The driving instructor said that he had only made a couple of corrections to her driving technique. Then he said “you should think about doing it as a job”. I guess that’s when the ball started rolling. I have been a driving instructor since 2014. I enjoy helping people get their licence. For some people, it is a work requirement and others for personal use but knowing I have helped someone achieve their goal is very satisfying. I have taught a range of students from teenagers who couldn't wait to get in the driver’s seat to other people later in life who need to drive as a work requirement. I have taught a variety of nationalities and treat everyone with the same respect.

Reviews

Judging by my first lesson, Chris is probably the best instructor I’ve had. He’s patient, cool headed and a good teacher. I appreciate that he acknowledged my prior driving experience and didn’t spend the whole first lesson talking at me without any driving like most of my past instructors have done to stretch out the lessons. Looking forward to booking more lessons with Chris and finally getting my licence!

I couldn’t have chosen a more professional, calm, patient and knowledgeable driver then Chris. I was incredibly nervous to start learning to drive, especially in Sydney, however from the moment I sat in the car, he made me feel in control and relaxed that all my previous worries were quickly diminished. Throughout our lessons together he was constantly teaching me life skills on how to be the safest driver on the road and explaining thoroughly each question I had. He was incredibly accommodating to me and the time I had available for lessons, especially towards the date of my driving test where he was a huge support in getting my confidence up to where I was no longer nervous for my test. I highly recommend Chris.

Chris is fantastic at identifying your weak points in driving, making you aware of them and then fixing those mistakes. I’ve also recommended friends to Chris not only for the aforementioned reason but for his constant emphasis on safe driving for both the driver as well as those around him. The best example I can give was his reminder to be continually aware of your environment, especially cyclists or motorbikes, when you have stopped at a light. This is a lesson that I have adopted in my driving ever since.

Chris was really reliable, professional and had very clear instruction. He made it very easy to learn and understand the road rules. Making the lessons fun and interesting. Everything Chris taught me I still use to this day and I am greatful that he was very patient with me. Thanks to Chris, for all the time and effort he put into my driving.

I couldn't have asked for a better driving instructor! Chris was with me from the first time I sat behind the wheel and was always patient to explain everything from what was happening on the road to components in the car. He created a comfortable and open environment for learning and genuinely cared for my progression.
