Hi, my name is Derek
My background is 20 years experience in both the busy Sydney CBD. and the Gold Coast where I hold a Certificate IV Transport & Logistics in Driving Instruction.
My aim is to teach you how to drive in a careful & safe manner with hands on encouragement and guidance whilst dealing with other road users.
Prior to becoming a Driving Instructor with Rightway, I worked for the NRMA Safer Driving School in Sydney CBD and I have also worked in other roles where I mentored drivers in the transport and distribution industry. 
I have a successful track record in teaching my students to pass the test and I am totally committed to your learning process.  
Each lesson is aimed to suit your needs at whatever stage you may be at in your driving journey.
When I am not driving, I spend time with my young family. I also like to go for a run and play a round of golf at my local course.
So if you want a driving instructor with a sense of humour with a sensitive nature then I look forward to working with you personally to pass the test and be safe for life!

Massive thank you to Derek for helping our daughter pass her P's on the first try .. She suffers from next level anxiety and to be honest - we were not sure she would be able to keep it under wraps for the big test - but with Derek's help she got there.

She felt comfortable with him from the very first lesson ! Cannot thank you enough ...

Would highly recommend Derek to anyone (especially if your nervous around new people like she is !! ) :)
