Our Automatic Intructors
I have been driving for 10 years in different states and overseas. I have done Certificate IV in Transport and Logistics as well as I am a Keys2drive accredited instructor with further University education and Higher Education Degree.
Most of my students say that I have got patience and I never get frustrated during my lessons with slow learners. I am very honest on advising number of lessons you need and deliver in effective way. All my lessons are well planned and engineered so every lesson is quality lesson you can get. I plan the whole learning journey customised for every single students according to their learning behaviour, availability and budget. Most of my students pass their PDA on their first attempt as I fully prepare them for Test with full support, confidence and top skills. Not only passing the test, I want my students to be the most safe drivers in Perth and keep other road users safe.

Rod has been an instructor for over 15 years.
Being a driving instructor comes naturally to me as I enjoy helpiing people to achieve their goals. With so many erratic drivers on the road it is very important that each student is taught not only how to pass their driving assessment but to have all the skills required to be a safe and courteous driver. I am confident that I have achieved this the day they pass their test.
Each student is different, some are quite confident while others are extremely nervous and all will learn at their own pace, so it is important to me to adjust my teaching techniques to suit the individual. Because of my calm nature my specialty would be new or nervous drivers.

I have been a driving instructor for over 12 years. I enjoy teaching young students how to drive and the not so young brushing up on their driving skills. Its great to watch a students face when they pass their PDA. It makes my job worthwhile and so enjoyable.
I’m planning to write a book about my experience as a driving instructor. I have met some very interesting people over the years and had some very memorable times. It’s what I enjoy about being an instructor.
Our lessons are fun and enjoyable. It’s a great experience to learn to drive.
