I was involved in my own Driving School for 7 years and moved onto a position with RTA/RMS as a Driving Examiner for over 13 years.  

I have enjoyed my return to Driving Instructing as I have always been passionate about passing on safe driving skills.

I have also completed further training in Workplace Training & Assessment and the Facilitation and Coaching of the Safer Driver Course... 

Now being affiliated with N.D.E. (NATIONAL DRIVER EDUCATION) who is accredited to Provide this Course, now enables me to bring this Service to our Young 17-25yr age learner's.

This Course Credits them to a Bonus 20 Hrs in their Learner Driver Log Book Hours.  Here they learn many safe driving strategies that will assist them in not only passing their Driving Test but through to learning the Low Risk Driving Skills that will also assist them navigate safely through life's twists and turns.

We look forward to meeting and helping many students and families along their journeys with safety being a priority on our roads.
