Hi, I'm Paul and I'm Northern Beaches born and bred. I've been driving for 36 years and have been a qualified Driving Instructor for the last 10 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.

Thank you Onroad and to my driving instructor Paul Hawkins he is the best driving instructor and was able to teach me how to get over my fears of driving and especially changing lanes in heavy traffic. He is patient and understanding and accommodating. I was able to pass my P's first go after only a few lessons. Thank you Paul for your lessons and help!!!
