I Teach: Automatic Lessons in Gold Coast North

 My Experience: Dan has worked for 2 years at Streetwise and has taught over 2000 driving lessons!

 My Super Power: Dan specialises in safe driving practices, test preparation, confidence boosting and motivation. He enjoys meeting new people and helping international students get their Australian licence as he is originally from the UK. Dan is able to bring the best out of every student by focusing on positives and effectively changing bad habits into good habits. He also holds a Heavy Vehicle drivers license so can understand what nearly all other road users are thinking and identify potential hazards to be aware of. He is qualified in a number of safety disciplines.

 Why I love my job: Dan has trained many students in a variety of subjects around the world, his passion to pass on knowledge is well documented and evident in the results his students receive. He likes sharing student’s success when passing their driving test and helping them achieve their driving goals. His main aim is to instill the importance of getting home in the same state you left, be aware of what other drivers are doing at all times and avoiding dangerous situations.

 In a previous life: Dan has over 30 years recreational driving experience in Australia, Europe, the Middle East and Asia. He worked throughout the GCC States as a Sales Manager in the FMCG sector, then moved to Asia and worked in Professional Services and Sales Training. A lifestyle change prompted him to relocate to England and retrain as a Chef which eventually led him to Australia.

 When I’m Not Working: Dan is still passionate about food and travel. He taught both his daughters how to drive with first time passes and enjoyed it so much he became an instructor. He enjoys cooking, mountain biking, backgammon, scuba diving and Japanese Jitsu.

 Qualification: Queensland Accredited Driver Trainer, Blue Card
