Paul Hawkins

Paul Hawkins

Hi, I'm Paul and I'm Northern Beaches born and bred. I've been driving for 34 years and have been a qualified Driving Instructor for the last 7 years, working with students of all ages in suburbs up and down the peninsula to become "complete" drivers. My main focus is to ensure every one of my students graduates to their P's with the skills and knowledge to be safe every single time they get behind the wheel. Learning good driving skills and habits early on in life creates calm and patient drivers. (A little bit of humour and the odd dad joke helps too!). 
I can provide manual lessons in the student's own car.

I look forward to meeting you and supporting you to become the safest driver on the road.
