I always try my best to help drivers become confident & safe behind the wheel.
I really, really, REALLY love being a driving instructor, it’s a privilege - helping to achieve a milestone and hopefully keeping you safe into the future.
If you don’t like music (*disclaimer heavy metal isn’t music but a middle aged woman singing off key IS) then I’m not for you.
I’ve been driving for 33 years, (you could get ur opens at 15 in the olden days) I have vast experience as a delivery driver throughout SEQ,  I know the traffic, and I look forward to showing you.

ACCREDITED KEYS 2 DRIVE INSTRUCTOR

I have literally found my dream job! I absolutely love being a driver trainer. Each day provides me with an opportunity to pass on my 30 years of driving experience, in both manual and auto, to someone like you! Yay!

My aim is to train you in everything you need so that you become a competent and safe driver for the rest of your life. I will provide you with a safe, relaxed and fun environment that will help you grow your confidence and skills on the road.

I love to be creative in designing my lessons specifically for you to get the most out of every minute. No lesson will be the same! All lessons will be geared to help you form safe driving habits, as well as become p-test ready. We will progress at your pace, so don’t worry I will not freak you out by taking you straight out on the highway if it is your first time behind the wheel.

You also won’t just be taking the easy option all the time. Sometimes driving can be challenging so I like to provide you with opportunities to experience this while you’re with me before you experience it on your own. I believe if you can do the more challenging option then everything else becomes easy. We will give it a go together. I will encourage you to think deeper about what you are doing and take ownership of your driving and lessons, so that you don’t learn to rely on anyone but yourself.

You will also be practising useful everyday driving such as parking in your favourite shopping centre. As we travel around we will see some amazing views of the city, discover an alternate route home, and we might even drive by what I’ve affectionately called the ‘avocado’ house.

We don’t need any more crazy drivers on the road. So let’s travel together toward being safe drivers for life.

Hi I’m Roz and I’m looking forward to meeting you!  I’ve had lots of years of experience teaching people to drive…  I love it and can ‘almost’ do it with my eyes closed… but I’m not gonna try!   I love a challenge so it won’t matter if you’re young or not so young, we can get together and work to give you all the skills you need to become a safe and confident driver… I hope to meet you very soon…

Hi, my name is Roark (Rowi) and I’m a Brisbane based driving instructor. 

I have a passion for helping students reach their goal of getting their manual Driver’s Licence, regardless of their age or experience. No two students are the same, which is why I will always customise my lessons to suit your skills and ability. My calm and patient demeanour will assist all types of students, including those that are nervous or stressed about the process. 

I have 20 years driving experience which also includes extensive knowledge as a tactical and defensive driver within the Australian Army. I am able to use these skills to help you develop and form responsible and safe driving habits

I have been teaching people, both young and a little older, for lots of years.  The experience I have gained helps me to enjoy playing a part in building the skill set of future drivers.  I also have a very strong sense of responsibility around the safety aspects of driving on the road, so it gives me great satisfaction to watch my students work their way through those things as well.  I am happy for my students to ask any questions at all, as that is a perfect way to gain knowledge and experience...  I'm looking forward to meeting you.

Sid

Sid

Hi! My name is Sid and I have been driving for about 20 years now and am very conservative in my driving approach. I have taken up this as a profession and as a practitioner of safe driving, my goal is to impart the skills I have learnt over the years to have prospective drivers as safe and responsible as possible.

I'd like to impart the driving skills to the students in a safe, patient, calm and fun manner. Driving is a life skill and therefore needs a solid foundation. I will strive to lay that foundation to all my students.

Kim

Learning something new is always challenging, so having fun doing it makes it easier.  Hi, I’m Kim, I’ve been with My Driving School for 8 years.  I’ve met awesome people and made really good friends through teaching and I am still in contact with students I taught years ago.

I have 2 young adult “kids”, so I understand the pressure’s and anxiety that sometimes come with learning to drive.

Good drivers drive safely, safety includes vehicle operation, hazard perception, scanning and decision making, defensive driving techniques and good driving habits, it’s not just my job, it’s my goal to help u achieve this.

I love having a chat and a good laugh.

So fasten your seatbelt!

ACCREDITED KEYS 2 DRIVE INSTRUCTOR

Hi I’m Karl. I’m a qualified school teacher and am the father of 2 high school daughters. I have been performing this role for over 8 years and I am passionate about teaching the importance of road safety to new drivers.

I have a love of cars and some of my interests include music, food/wine and travel.

I teach manual and find this rewarding but am also willing to teach in automatic vehicles.

Mike

ACCREDITED KEYS 2 DRIVE INSTRUCTOR

I was a driving instructor for 6 years in the late 80's early 90's. This was put on hold once children arrived and then again when my family and I moved to China. We lived there for over 6 years teaching English, it was a great experience. When we returned, I also returned to driver training, updating my qualifications in 2011.
Now I've been back at it, I am still loving the work and always looking to become a better instructor. It’s always such a joy when students pass their driving test or when parents like your teaching techniques enough to ask you to teach their next child or switch from auto to manual. I have even taught 3 different learners from the one family.
I have always been interested in cars, driving and I do love a good chat and getting to know people. Once learners get in my vehicle, they feel comfortable and at ease with my calm, relaxed personality.
I've been married for 30 years and have two grown up daughters who are now married also.

I started instructing people to rock climb and abseil when I was 17, just for fun. Since then I have been running and designing training programs professionally and for enjoyment. When my son needed to learn to drive, I thought I would be great at it. It mostly went well and I enjoyed it so much I did the necessary training and became an instructor with My Driving School. I hope to build confidence and skill with every person and look forward to meeting you.  Ian
