Hi, my name is Mark. 

Having spent 36 years in law enforcement, I retired from that career and decided to become an AA Driving Instructor.

I used to be a Testing Officer for Driver Licensing with the New Zealand Police, before NZTA took over. I bring a wealth of knowledge to teaching people how to drive.

I have a relaxed training method where each person is treated as an individual, with training adapted to suit their needs.

I chose this career because I love teaching people a skill that they’ll use for the rest of their lives and that gives them the independence they’ve always wanted.

I've always enjoyed working with people and exercising my passion in helping others to achieve their goals.

Exceptional Driving Instructor - A Road to Success! I recently had the pleasure of learning to drive under the expert guidance of Mark, and I cannot express enough how grateful I am for the invaluable experience. As a driver who has driven for a while, I was initially nervous, but Mark quickly turned those apprehensions into confidence through their exceptional teaching skills. From the very first lesson, it was evident that Mark possesses not only a profound understanding of driving techniques but also an unparalleled ability to communicate and impart knowledge effectively. Their patience and calm demeanor created a positive learning environment, making each session enjoyable and stress-free. Great work Team AA and Thank you so much Mark, (Yes I Passed)
