KEYS2DRIVE ACCREDITED INSTRUCTOR


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!

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 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.

I have a passion for teaching and enjoy seeing my students thrive. I have been trained with all the latest information, ever changing road rules and techniques to enable me to best assist you in your learning journey. 

The early stages of learning how to drive are very important as they lay the foundation to build and develop the proper techniques.

Working with me, we will focus on the correct techniques as well as road safety to ensure you are a confident driver for life. My teaching style is to discuss and identify the areas which you are struggling with, then provide guidance, tips and tricks to simplify them. We will work together in a calm and friendly environment that supports positive results. I look forward to working with you.

Hi, my name is Julie, I was the original Proprietor of 'Beerwah U Bute Driver Training'/ Driving School. Of which I was the sole operator and fully qualified Driver Trainer for over 6 years.

My total driving experience spans over 35 years of a clean safe driving history, of which I am very proud. It is so incredibly rewarding to see a nervous student, slowly become a confident, safe aware driver in control of a manual vehicle. I feel very strongly that young people have more opportunities available to them, plus the ability to drive any vehicle when the needs arise. All possible after achieving the acquisition of a manual driving license.

You will find, I am a friendly, caring, and an extremely patient Driving Instructor. So, don't stress, and let me assist you at the beginning, middle or end of your driving journey, you are in good hands.

Bernadette

Bernadette

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.

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.
