Instructor bio

My name is Tony, I became a driving instructor in 2009. I am a highly experienced driver trainer offering instruction in both automatic and manual vehicles. I hold my accreditation in both NSW and QLD. Prior to being an instructor, I was a taxi driver for almost 30 years, my estimate is that I have driven 3in excess of 3 million kilometres. During this time, I learnt to drive with a proactive approach and I teach in the same way. Along with many tips and tricks I have developed over the years. Reverse parallel parking is one of my specialities! Being a driving instructor brings with it great flexibility, being my own boss, choosing when to work and providing a great work-life balance. The other great thing about what I do is the diversity, no two days are the same. Everybody learns in different ways, I do my best to understand this and customise the lessons to suit. I thoroughly enjoy meeting new people from all different backgrounds. I am passionate about teaching learners to be safe and confident drivers as they work towards achieving their independence.

Reviews

I've bought 20 lessons in total from Tony (10 more recently after being highly satisfied with the first 10 lessons). He's a great driving instructor. I've had lessons in the past from other instructors, and Tony is by far the best! He's kind, patient and supportive and has excellent driving test knowledge. I was a pretty nervous driver at first, but Tony always helps you to feel confident and stress-free. His lessons are also very reasonably priced. I would definitely recommend him to family and friends!

Just wanted to write a note saying a big thank you to you for helping me pass my test. Tony has been great, without him I would still be sitting on the bus! Thank you so much.
