Hi I'm Derek...

Prior to becoming a Driving Instructor, I worked for the NRMA Safer Driving School were I was an experienced professional driver and mentor to other drivers in the transport and distribution industry in Sydney.

I also worked as a Courier for 20 years in Sydney CBD. I specialise in dealing with traffic and how to handle other road users in a patient & sensible manner.

My wealth of understanding and knowledge of “Sydney” traffic gave me a great advantage of preparing students for the difficulties of driving in busy city environments.

I am patient, and honest with a good sense of humour which I use to create an easy and stress free approach to driving. I am committed to the learning process of every student and aim to make every lesson suit the client’s needs at the stage they are at.

I hold a Certificate IV Transport & Logistics - Driving instruction.

I am calm, relaxed, patient, honest, & enjoy good conversation!

My interests include Golf, Music (DJ),Travel & spending time with my wife and 3 kids.

I look forward to helping you with your journey to become a safe driver.

I am Keys2drive accredited
