Hi, I’m John,

Before becoming a Driving Instructor, I worked as a TV Presenter, Actor and Stand Up Comedy Promoter. In fact, I am still acting; most recently as Coach V in Young Rock Season 2 or my latest adverts, the Dad in the MooGoo Skincare TV Commercial or the man in the Ergon Shocks and Tingles campaign!

Over the years, I have worked with many people from all walks of life and ages which helps me teach anyone to drive safely and pass their test with complete confidence.

I have driven in many countries including Europe and Asia, some with chaotic traffic, which has significantly helped me gain a lot of experience in varied driving conditions to help me on my journey to become a Driving Instructor here on the Gold Coast. I hold a Cert IV Transport & Logistics – Driving instruction and also completed an advance driving course in the UK.

One of my 3 children has Autism which has given me personal insight into how people on the spectrum think and learn, which in turn aids me when teaching anyone with additional needs and fully empathetic to their challenges.
One of my daughters recently passed her test with Rightway Driving School and I take pride in the fact I was part of her 100 hours making her a safe and courteous driver on our roads today.

I am relaxed, calm and patient but also enjoy humour which helps to relax students so they don’t feel anxious and stressed.

When I am not acting, I like to play golf and spend time with my wife and 3 children!

I look forward to helping you become a safe driver!

Thanks to John I have now just passed my Ps test. He was a great instructor who was patient, super helpful and friendly. Knows the areas and road rules in those specific areas well as well as re visiting things you’re struggling with until you are completely test ready.
Thanks John! :)
