Hi, my name is Glen,

 

Learning to drive can be a little daunting, but remember, we were learner drivers once.

To gain knowledge or to learn new skills, questions need to be asked. As your instructor, I consider no question to be a silly question.

Coming from a background in the Mining Industry (8 years) and Air & Road Freight Transport Logistics where safety is a priority, as your instructor, your safety is my priority.

You will be taught in a professional, patient and courteous manner to gain the skills to drive a car safely and with confidence.

Hi I’m Debbie,

I’m a qualified driving instructor who lives and works in the Redlands area.
I believe I am well equipped to help new drivers learn how to drive safely in all conditions and situations and to be competent and considerate drivers.

I love driving! My dad taught me to drive as soon as I was old enough. He instilled in me the habits of being a careful and conscientious driver as well as a law-abiding citizen. I quickly became a proud holder of not one, but three driver licences:  motorbike, car and heavy duty licence (with authorisation for public passenger services). This enabled me to be employed as a tour and school
bus driver, work which I thoroughly enjoyed.

I’ve always enjoyed working with people and have a calm, patient and friendly personality. Prior to becoming a Driving Instructor, I teach as a Teacher Aide and I have also coached junior club sport in the Redlands district.

I have two teenage daughters, one of whom I’ve taught to drive. She is now a confident and safe driver, so if I can teach my own daughter to drive, I can teach anyone!

If you would like to experience the freedom that comes with being a confident driver, I would love to
teach you!

My teaching technique and style is based on having a very calm and compassionate demeanor. My job as an Instructor is to provide you with the tools and knowledge you will require to not only pass your driving test but to have a lifetime of safe driving and confident driving abilities.
