Hello, my name is John,

I’ve had a varied working life, starting off as a pilot in the RNZAF, then moving on to farming, becoming a finance manager, keel boat sailing and scuba diving instructing.

I have been a full time AA Driving Instructor in Nelson for over 5 years. I really enjoy teaching and consider my teaching style to be calm, patient and friendly. My students regularly message me after they pass their driving tests and they tend to agree!

I have always enjoyed passing on my skills to younger generations. I feel very fortunate that in my position as an AA Driving Instructor I can help make NZ roads safer.

I look forward to joining you on your driving journey.
