Queensland Accredited Driver Trainer, RYDA Presenter

Teaching Area: Northern Brisbane/Southern Moreton Bay Region

Teaching Experience: 10 years +

Transmission: Manual

Usual Lesson Vehicle: Silver Mazda 2


Having had 12 years of being a driver instructor and assessor, I know the skills, confidence and abilities required for people to gain their driver’s licence.

Before becoming a driving instructor, I worked in the printing industry and was a manager in a large, busy factory in the ACT, supervising many people and training apprentices in my team. My excellent communication skills helped me liaise with others, to troubleshoot to solve problems. My calm, respectful manner allowed me to support others to meet job deadlines and job requirements.

I am bi-lingual (Spanish) and have taught many students with another language as their first language other than English, how to drive. I have taught many ages of people how to drive, from 16 years of age up to adults getting their licence for the first time.

I believe we all learn best when calm and in a positive head space. I have a patient and relaxed manner which supports my students to have success as drivers. I provide my students the reassurance and knowledge necessary to be confident and safe drivers. 

I am a mad keen fisherman and love going out on the boat. If I don’t see you out on the water casting a fishing rod, I’ll see you on the road learning to drive!

A very big thank you to Michael (manual instructor) at Woody Point. My daughter advised Michael has been fantastic when explaining steps clearly to her and providing advice on areas requiring more practice.
