Steve is passionate about helping you become a safe and confident manual driver. Check out his profile video below and book online.

First look at Steve's great new car!

Steve is an experienced instructor in many fields of training and assessment. He’s trained in many of his lifelong passions! He’s been a passionate trainer and assessor since 2010.

Steve’s rewarding training career developed from his love of boating and deep-sea fishing. He worked in the marine industry as a Recreational Marine Driver License (RMDL) and Jet Ski License (PWC) instructor. Steve then went on to work as a Professional Driver Trainer with RACQ. He taught 4WD training for the mining industry, 2WD defensive driving, company employer assessment drives and medical assessment drives.


Steve’s impressive list of training qualifications and experience also includes his life-long passion for two wheels. His training portfolio also includes QRide Motorcycle training and assessment.  

Steve says training is not all about instructing. First you must have a deep desire and passion to sincerely want to “help” people learn in the area that you are training in. A trainer is so much more than “just an instructor”, yes, we instruct, we also coach, we are also teachers, we mentor, we are great listeners, great communicators, with patience as deep as the deepest oceans and we are naturally an empathetic bunch!

My goal is to not just equip the student with the necessary skills to pass a practical driving assessment. My goal is to imagine each learner driver as my son or daughter, teaching them defensive driving skills for life and instilling in them, a positive driving attitude helping save lives on our roads.  

Let’s train together, lets learn together and most of all, let’s build an exciting appreciation for safe driving.
