Craig Harrington - Book online

Craig believes that a student should never apologise for making a mistake. Apologising can make students feel incompetent and distracts them from the next part of the lesson. Craig makes his students aware that many crashes could be avoided if drivers paid more attention, obeyed the rules and drove in a predictable manner. He aims to impart knowledge to students through real life examples of driver behaviour and its consequences.

George Switalski - Book online

George has over forty years driving experience, thirty six of them as a Police Officer. He has seen the carnage that is caused by speed, fatigue and other influencing factors, the vast majority of which is avoidable. George is passionate and determined to ensure all of his students, at whatever level he first encounters them, learn and enhance their safe driving skills. His goal is to see all of his students maintain good independent driving habits after receiving their full licence and remain accident free.

Lynnette's success as a driving instructor is driven by the love of her job. Her 16 years' experience has enabled Lynnette to build a wealth of knowledge and adapt her teaching style to the individual needs of her students. She is extremely patient and has a quiet, pleasant personality.
