Instructors at Metro Driving School

Driving School Instructor Timothy



Just a little bit about myself.  I’ve been driving both manual and automatic vehicles for over 30 years plus have ridden  motorcycles.  I thoroughly enjoy driving and the freedom it brings. With my experience of riding motorcycles, it’s made me very aware of my surroundings and what hazards to look out for.

With all the skills I have learned over the many years of driving, I now look forward to assisting the many new drivers of today. I anticipate to teach my new drivers (you) appropriate and safe vehicle operation, hazard recognition and perception development, safe driving behaviour instruction, defensive driving techniques, observation and scanning techniques, developing deeper thinking and lastly logical reasoning. All while instilling good driving habits and behaviours, so that you (my new driving student) are test ready on the day and are fully confident in obtaining your driving license.

Rest assured that you will feel very comfortable under my instruction. I am patient, caring and friendly and will always do my utmost to put you at ease behind the wheel.

So, I look forward to meeting you and teaching you the skills you need to be that safe driver on our roads.  

Drive safe! & Be prepared!

Driving School Instructor Harold


I’ve been a driver trainer for 17 years, and enjoy the teaching role. Being a very patient person, I provide a calm learning environment for my students. I also enjoy making lessons interesting for my students.
I believe that patient; experienced driving instructors offer a better and more comfortable learning experience for learner drivers. Most drivers develop bad habits over the years. So it’s better that learner drivers are trained by driver trainers in correct practices instead of bad habits from normal drivers.

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, 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!”

My name is Bernadette and I am an addict... A driving addict.  

I love driving and I love teaching people of all ages to drive, not only safely, but confidently.  

I choose to teach in a manual and my aim is to alleviate any fear of it being too hard.  Anyone can do it.  It is a great accomplishment and a skill for life. 

My training began by teaching over 400 hours of driving as a parent, so I know first hand how stressful it can feel.  Although not fun to start with, I gained a great insight into the development of the teenage brain in relation to understanding instructions, making decisions and performing complex manoeuvres.  With this understanding I have developed the ability to confidently teach while remaining patient, calm and stress free.  Ideal conditions for a student… of any age.


I look forward to taking the stress out of your driving experience and turning it into confidence.
