Hi, my name is Phil.

Born in Singapore, raised in NZ, but will always be a kiwi boy. I’ve spent most of my years as a truck driver – then moved to China to become a teacher. This is where I learnt to really love teaching. When I returned, I wanted to combine my love of driving and teaching and so I became a driving instructor.

I pride myself in teaching students on how to be an active driver, a driver who’s always aware of their surroundings and who can connect with their car and the road, not just pass a test!

Each lesson is individual, and being dyslexic myself, I understand that everybody learns in different ways and the teacher must be flexible and patient. I strive to make each lesson fun and relaxed as this will help students to learn fast.

Couldn't have asked for a better person to help me pass my restricted test just 4 days before the test. The most charismatic person you'll meet and though he doesn't like to admit it, he's a great teacher. Only two lessons with him and he practically covered the whole test with me. I would definitely recommend Phil if you wanted to take driving lessons and receive good feedback.
