My passion is for teaching students to become the best and safest drivers as possible and I enjoy getting to know what makes them tick and relating their strengths to their driving skills .

One of my recent students said "This has been a great experience, practicing and ultimately achieving an open license. Brian is a very experienced and kind instructor. His tips about safe driving were really helpful. This was a perfect value for money experience with Metro."  Ashish K

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!

I’ve been a driver trainer for over 11 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.

Having been a qualified driving instructor for over 25 years with training approved by Queensland Department of Transport, one thing I stand by is that learning to drive should be an enjoyable experience. From the moment you step into the vehicle, you can be assured that you will learn to drive in a relaxed and safe environment.

Patience is what I pride myself on and my students safety at all times behind the wheel. My objective is to give my students the skills to be a confident, accomplished, safe driver for life.

Hi, I'm Shaun and my passion is to teach.

In the past I have taught guitar in schools in the UK and now I love to teach safe driving on the roads.

I have over 25 years of experience of both car and heavy vehicles, and to this date have not had any road traffic accidents resulting in ZERO CLAIMS! My accreditation is Certificate IV in Transport and Logistics (Road Transport Car Driving Instruction) and my experience and hands on approach is much more!

My teaching style is practical for every situation that arises on the road, promoting awareness and observational skills. Im a great communicator that builds confidence towards a "can do" attitude in making quick and necessary decisions on the spot. I put the emphasis on safety at all times. I have a calm, patient and friendly manner resulting in an enjoyable learning experience. My goal is to develop new drivers into responsible, skilled and safe drivers for life!

Behind the scenes I am also part of Australia's biggest Bee Gees tribute show called UK Bee GeeZ! My experience of many years behind the steering wheel will keep you 'Staying Alive' ;-) Lets get on the road to success!

I have been a driving instructor for three years now and have taught more than a thousand students how to control a car, how to be safe on the road, and how to pass their practical driving test (surprisingly not all the same thing!) My lessons are fun and productive, and all skill levels are catered for. My students have ranged in age from 16 to 77!

I focus on three characteristics that define a safe driver:

  1. Developing total physical control of the car
  2. Situational awareness
  3. Understanding ‘who goes first’ – knowing who and when to give way

I’ve found that all the things that you do on the road are a combination of these three things. Everything from a reverse park, to merging on a motorway. I would love to be your instructor! My hours are from 6:00 AM to 8:00 PM and include weekends. I teach mainly on Brisbane’s Southside, from the City to Logan and out to Wynnum, in an Automatic Vehicle.

Prior to starting out as a driving instructor, I worked for 10 years at a school with kids with disabilities. I also studied part time for an advanced diploma of Education. Due to changes in the system, I decided it was time for a change. When people ask me if I enjoy what I do, I can honestly reply that I absolutely love it. It’s the reason for getting out of bed. I like to use humour during lessons and for each student to understand that mistakes can be a good thing. They can learn best from their mistakes. The best part of what I do is when they go for their test and pass. I get to say (with a huge grin on my Face) “Told you so”

I have been in the training business business for most of my working life. I have also been a small business operator in rural services and hospitality.  I dealt with adults and senior high school students a good part of this time. Despite this, I have retained my sense of humour and remain calm and patient. I have been heavily involved in competency-based assessment for the last 20 years and have comfortably managed the transition to my current role. I have been a driving instructor for almost a year now and find it enjoyable and rewarding. My focus is on safe and proactive driving with a view to getting my students test-ready (manual driving). I am familiar with the areas around the three test centres north of the Brisbane River and can help you develop the skills to negotiate most of the awkward situations you are likely to encounter there.

I am based in Redcliffe and my service areas cover most of the North Side.

I have been a driving instructor for many years. I enjoy teaching driving because I love when students get the hang of the clutch and changing gears. I also enjoy teaching driving as there is nothing better than when one of your students passes their test and gains their freedom.

Having a young family myself I also hope to instil some road safety into my student so that they can enjoy many years of motoring pleasure. Finally coming from being a chef, a career as a driving instructor gives me the opportunity to spend time with my family which I love.

Hello, I’m Colin Leung. I’m happily married to Anny, have a daughter and a baby son. 
I am a qualified driving instructor with a Cert. IV in Transport and Logistics teaching Manual.  At the same time, I hold the Blue Card which allows me to be working with children.  
Having the ability to communicate in Clear well spoken English, Cantonese and Mandarin allows me to teach a variety of students from different countries.  
I was previously working overseas at CBRE Limited and Savills Project Consultancy Limited involving in Facility Management and Building Services.  I had my university life here at The University of Queensland and graduated in Mechanical Engineering.  The reason I took Mechanical Engineering simply because I love cars.

Apart from the working life, I love photography. I very much enjoy the time with my family, travelling around and taking photos. I love to try new foods, sharing ideas when having meals with friends during weekends.  Through this, we always have a thankful and happy moment which let us have the energy to start a new week.

I am a very friendly and reliable person. I love driving cars so much and hope to pass my knowledge, techniques and experience to people around.   I have many years of safe and clean driving record.  All age groups are welcomed.

Hello, I am Mandarr Hinge, happily married for 16 years and have one son. I am accredited to teach Automatic cars. I have excellent safety driving record for more than 20 years without any incident. 

 

I have experience of teaching driving to students ranging from ages between 17 to 70 years. I feel age is not the limiting factor to learn driving when you have a strong desire. I have helped many overseas experienced drivers in getting their license here.

I believe in planning lessons to suit the requirements of each individual learner as students have different needs and different levels of experience.

I have often been complimented to be a calm and patient trainer.

 I am passionate about teaching and driving safely. I hope to pass on the knowledge to my students to make them safer and responsible drivers.

Along with English, I speak Hindi and Marathi. I look forward to meeting you in near future.

I have been a driving instructor for 9 years now and I really love what I do. It was a big career change for me, coming from being an interior decorator, but it is so satisfying helping young people to get their independence. Before becoming a driving instructor I consulted my four adult children who were taught to drive by Bryan and myself – I thought it was encouraging and that I might actually be good at it when they couldn’t really even remember the process and now in their 30’s are still good and safe drivers.

I am constantly amazed by the quality of our young people today and I find it a great pleasure to be involved in the process which gives them their freedom. As s job it is satisfying to have visible results for your efforts and I really enjoy it.

Being a driving instructor is extremely rewarding as I can assist people, particularly young people, achieve a vital step towards  independence – passing their driving test and obtaining a driver’s licence.  I want to make sure my students are thoroughly prepared for the test – and that they are skilled and capable with the right attitudes as future road users.

I’m a very patient person who will use all my abilities to provide a learning environment where my students feel calm and relaxed to develop their driving skills and attitudes.
