When I became a driving instructor, I made it my mission to help individuals equip themselves with strong skills for safe and confident driving. With over 40 years’ experience on the road, I can confidently say that I have immense knowledge to pass down to my prospective students. As your potential driving instructor my focus will be on teaching you the right way to drive, and in doing so, providing you with skills and habits which will aid you for a lifetime. Each lesson will vary and be tailored according to the individual. I will ensure that in teaching, I assess your strengths and weaknesses, and provide you with opportunities to grow. I will also also ensure that you’re driving is in perfect condition prior to any examination, and that all areas are covered for you to succeed. Ultimately in becoming you’re driving instructor, I am not only balancing my passion for driving, I am also balancing my passion to teach. I look forward to teaching you and am excited for your journey yet to come.

Matthew Philpott

Hi, I'm Matthew and I constantly work at improving my teaching methods and utilising a variety of training aids to illustrate the driving methods & skills required. With my vast experience in management & customer service positions, I have all the inter-personal skills to ensure a pleasant and enjoyable experience whilst being a learner driver.

I have been involved in sporting activities since my childhood and I have coached rugby league, cricket (both senior & junior up to representative district level) & still help my youngest daughter when required by coaching netball. Hence, with my coaching experience, I have a special ability to relate to the younger drivers, ensuring the best possible outcome during their learning experience.

I have a compact SUV – Auto, to help children of today to learn in a similar sized car to what their parents may be driving.

At the start I am an instructor / teacher imparting basic driving skills. At the 2nd stage I become a coach to help you improve & better your driving skills & finally as the test day approaches I become your mentor, to guide your through the methods of best practice in your driving, ensuring a much better, safer & confident driver.

I am a certified Keys2drive instructor ( free lesson )

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.

Hi, I'm Anil and I have more than 20 years experience in customer service. I also have more than 30 years of driving experience in total. With this experience I realised the importance of safe driving techniques. I started instructing friends and their family members and saw the success. This made me decide to become a driving instructor. I obtained my driving instructor license and started sharing my experience with my students. My patience is the key to my instructions. With this I can pinpoint the intricacies that are required for safe driving and how to pass the driving test at first go.

I am an automatic instructor but can also provide manual lessons in the student's own car.

George Slewo

George Slewo

I was inspired to become a Driving Instructor in 2006 as a result of teaching my niece to drive. She had had numerous paid driving lessons but was not progressing. I offered to help and found, not only did I enjoy the experience, I was a good teacher. My niece quickly improved and went on to gain her licence. Many years on I still love teaching people to drive and find one of my greatest skills is making my students feel relaxed and stress free during lessons. In addition, not all students learn at the same pace so all my lessons are tailored for the individual, this allows the student to progress along the learning journey without pressure, ultimately creating a competent and safe driver. I am a family man with four children and I have taught my oldest two to drive. When not instructing I spend my free time with my family.
