Dharma Maharjan

Hi, my name is Dharma. I consider this to be advantageous as my skills, knowledge and understanding of the road rules is up-to-date in line with today’s expectations. The decision to become an instructor came about after teaching my wife how to drive, I enjoyed it immensely, I then assisted friends to learn and they found my methods easy to understand and implement.
Prior to this, I worked for a large retail business at the airport. Through my role with this company, I have had a lot of training and developed a strong focus on customer service, I am honest, hardworking and reliable.
I really enjoy my work. The process of teaching people, often from scratch, and training them to them become good drivers is really rewarding. I am able to teach across different ages, experience and backgrounds. I am calm and patient which helps to put learners at ease.
It is also lovely to get wonderful feedback from learners via text messages and great reviews, that I have provided them with a positive experience and helped them to achieve their goal. Actually, there is nothing better than seeing my learners with a big smile on their face once they have achieved their licence.
Happy instructor, happy learner!

I am a driving educator over 5 years’ experience within the Driving education industry. Prior to becoming a driving educator, I was with the Federal Government for 20 years within client service. I am a people focussed, adaptable and determined, with a strong desire to learn and help others.

I am an accredited Driving Educator skilled in managing complex customer interactions to bring about the best learning solutions that meet the Roads and Maritime Services requirements for driving licence with safe driving. 

I took part in a Driver Ready Program project with Curtin University/ Western Sydney University to assist with Autism Spectrum Disorder for 7 months. Educating students with Autism disorder was challenging and rewarding. I have knowledge in understanding people's emotions in observing their anxiety and their fear of driving and with the encouragement, teach them when it is safe to drive.

I am highly passionate about learner drivers attaining their driver's licence. I also have a strong understanding of what is required from the learner in order to transition into a provisional driver. 

I look forward to taking you on the journey to success.
