Hi, my name is Christie.

I grew up in the Nelson area. My previous career as a news and current affairs cameraman for TV3 for 15 years, I worked in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch. I moved back to the Nelson area recently, driving boats in the Abel Tasman National Park. Meeting new people from all walks of life has always been the most enjoyable parts of my work. 

Being a driving instructor suits my personality well: I’m calm, patient and enjoy meeting new people. I’ve taught people to drive cars, boats and tractors! I really enjoyed teaching my son to drive who is now teaching people how to fly airplanes! I also like to pass on my knowledge and skills to help others succeed.

I love teaching and find it very satisfying seeing my student’s progress. I enjoy teaching people to drive as they build their confidence and gain independence through driving. 

I look forward to helping you in your learning to drive journey.
