Hi I'm Colin!! Born in England, I moved to Australia in 1964, and now find myself a firm Australian. After working with the same company for 38 years I retired. I wanted to give back to the community so commenced driving a bus for a small group of elderly persons in the Rooty Hill Area on Thursdays. I was still not engaged sufficiently so undertook a driving instructor course and have been teaching manual cars for the past 3 years with many favorable reviews of my style and skills. This keeps me engaged with the community and makes me feel like I contribute.

I had 3 lessons with Colin Drake ( two 1 hour lessons and a test package) and he was absolutely amazing! He’s so patient and funny. Very easy to warm up to as I was a nervous wreck on the day of my test and a bit all over the place in a car I’m not used to. But thanks to him for boosting my confidence while driving and giving great tips for test prep. I did another lesson with a different instructor and he was hard to understand and learn from but Colin was so simple and easy. I wouldn’t have been able to get my P’s first go if it wasn’t for him. An all round great driving instructor especially in manual. Thanks heaps Colin! ??
