Kia ora, my name is Rochelle.

I am a fully qualified driving instructor with over 35 years driving experience and prior to becoming an instructor, I worked in mental health for 15 years. I'm very passionate about teaching and aspire to create a relaxed, calm learning environment for my students as I believe this achieves the best results. I focus not only on teaching students how to drive, but more importantly, teaching safe driving habits that will last a lifetime.

I find helping students achieve their goals and building their confidence to be incredibly rewarding. During our lessons, you can either use your own car or my dual controlled vehicle – whatever you are most comfortable with.

I look forward to working together to help you on your driving journey!

Rochelle was absolutely amazing. Despite having had over a year of experience on my Learners, I still learnt so much over my 2 lessons. I never felt nervous or uneasy behind the wheel. Rochelle greatly increased my confidence to head to my restricted test. She gave great feedback and planned a fantastic 2 lessons around my comments when booking that helped me achieve what I wanted before booking my test. I can not speak highly enough about Rochelle. If you are looking for an instructor to help you gain confidence before a test, I absolutely 100% recommend.

Thank you :)
