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.

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

I would like to say Big Thanks to Derek! for helping me achieve passed my driving test today. He’s nice friendly clear on directions and instructions. Derek help me to overcome my fear and nervousness of driving. I would highly recommend him to anyone with anxiety on driving. Derek is a large part of my success! Before booking in ‘Rightway Driving School’ I have a previous instructor but I just feel like I need to learn more. I’ve seen a lot of driving school car include Rightway Driving’ so I decide to look online. Then I end up get a new lesson and then end up getting more and finally booked their Test Day Package with the same instructor Derek Brooks. Thank you!!!
