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 have had my driving lessons with Matthew Philpott. He is very Calm & Composed! He explains in detail and with precision. His instructions were very clear, informative and microscopic. He really cares for safety aspects of driving and guides to be safe at all the time. I am thankful to him for a wonderful experience I had with him and would recommend learners to approach him for his professional attitude. Needless to say 5*
