Hi I'm Derek...

Prior to becoming a Driving Instructor, I worked for the NRMA Safer Driving School were I was an experienced professional driver and mentor to other drivers in the transport and distribution industry in Sydney.

I also worked as a Courier for 20 years in Sydney CBD. I specialise in dealing with traffic and how to handle other road users in a patient & sensible manner.

My wealth of understanding and knowledge of “Sydney” traffic gave me a great advantage of preparing students for the difficulties of driving in busy city environments.

I am patient, and honest with a good sense of humour which I use to create an easy and stress free approach to driving. I am committed to the learning process of every student and aim to make every lesson suit the client’s needs at the stage they are at.

I hold a Certificate IV Transport & Logistics - Driving instruction.

I am calm, relaxed, patient, honest, & enjoy good conversation!

My interests include Golf, Music (DJ),Travel & spending time with my wife and 3 kids.

I look forward to helping you with your journey to become a safe driver.

I am Keys2drive accredited

Thank you to the whole Rightway Driving School team for making everything so easy when it comes to take the test! Special thanks to Derek! He helped me so much and gave me confidence when I was in panic mode and did not want to do the test! Thanks to his patience and teaching skills I was able to pass! Darren is the man!
