Instructor bio

Hi, my name is Mark. Having lived on the Gold Coast since 1994 gives me extensive knowledge of the roads and traffic conditions. I have been a driving instructor since 2003. I started as part of a larger group, however I quickly decided to run my own business. Being an independent operator gives me the freedom and flexibility to work when it suits me (and my learners) and also do the things I enjoy most. I have provided instruction to a diverse range of age groups as well as across a variety of cultural backgrounds. I have met some outstanding people during my time helping people to get their driver’s licence. I have enjoyed listening to their stories while seeing them learn the many skills needed to drive. Solving their driving issues and helping them overcome their fears so that they can progress and become a safe driver is one of the most rewarding parts of the role I have as a driver trainer. Prior to becoming a driver trainer, I held many roles in the Construction Industry. I have an keen eye for detail, can relate well with others and take a step-by-step approach. I am married and together we have two children and one granddaughter.

Mark was such a great instructor and teacher. He told me all I needed to know about road safety and mauvering the car safely. Such a great chat as well! Thanks for making my first time driving in Gold Coast such a stress free but educational experience! -Patty

My son Saul Bridges had his first lesson with Mark and it went extremely well. He was very nervous but Mark soon had him relaxed We will be using Mark for all Sauls future lessons. He is an excellent driving instructor and would definitely recommend him to everyone Thanks Toni Gauge
