He has had previous experience in the Education and Counselling Industry. He has a genuine interest and passion for coaching our drivers and instructors to be safe on our roads.

He believes in developing excellent driver and driving instructor ‘skills’, these include:

  • For drivers;
    • early scanning for potential hazards,
    • learning to be a confident ‘decision-maker’ when placed in a variety of driving situations,
    • abiding by the law
    • being courteous to other road users.
  • For instructors;
    • abiding by the “Driving Instructor Code of Practice”,
    • continuous teaching/ coaching skills development,
    • professional conduct at all times,
    • accreditation, registration and monitoring,
    • continuously updating our skills for the changing road conditions.

Michael believes that it’s not necessarily our ‘right’ to drive and teach on our roads but rather that it is a ‘privilege’ and therefore we should do so safely, courteously, professionally and skillfully, with the emphasis on “Safe Driving for Life!”.
