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.

Debbie (Auto) McIvor

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. 

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

I'm originally from Northern Ireland but have been living in Brisbane in a house full of madness, music and love since 2007 with Kiera and our six kids, six birds, dopey Dogue de Bordeaux, Bruno and a fish with a name he never answers to.

I come from a health and fitness background where I developed a skill for explaining things simply and effectively in a calm and encouraging way, something learner drivers will appreciate and benefit from. Learning to drive can be an intimidating prospect to a young person, I have the personality to ease that and allow the learner to concentrate fully and confidently on the task at hand.
