Dear Gavin, I would only be giving you this card if I have passed my test, so if you are reading this WHOOOHOO I PASSED!!! I would like to thank you so much for helping over the past few months and being such a wonderful teacher. I haven't just learnt how to drive manual, but also how to manage my stress on the roads (well, I'm getting there) and also how to enjoy driving. I appreciate the banter we have and how easy it is to talk to you, which makes the classes fly by. I am going to miss you heaps Gavin and all the best for the future!
Best wishes, Eshara (Speedy/Princess/Hooney/Grandma/Roughy)
Before I had lessons with Manual Made Easy I had really bad experiences with other instructors who put me in dangerous situations, didn't show up on time or even show up at all. After finding Manual Driving Made Easy I decided to learn manual. Manual Driving Made Easy helped me not only pass my test but feel safe, prepared and gave me knowledge for all my future driving experiences on the roads. Gavin from Manual driving made easy always showed up on time, I always felt comfortable and safe in car with him. Each lesson was always a positive experience and to which I looked forward to every lesson. I now feel so much safer and more road aware thanks to Manual Driving Made Easy. For anyone wanting to learn manual or wanting to improve their manual driving, Manual Driving Made Easy (Gavin) is the instructor to be! Not only did I pass my test first time around but I feel so much safer out on the road.
Before receiving lessons from Gavin, I was not a confident driver at all. During our lessons, Gavin taught me not only how to drive well, but more importantly how to remain safe on the roads. Gavin is a kind, charismatic and bubbly teacher who made learning how to drive extremely enjoyable — I was very sad to end our lessons upon receiving my license! I still remember all the things Gavin taught me in our lessons, and I know that I will continue to think of him when driving for years to come! Thank you so much Gavin (:
Driving a manual car for the first time is stressful, and I always felt apprehensive getting in the car as a learner. I started lessons with Gavin, who was calm and very clear in his explanations. His experience and knowledge helped me to better understand how to drive efficiently and safely. Now, I love driving manual cars- I am lucky I was taught by Gavin, as I now drive manual 4x4s as a part of my job in mining (both underground and open pit). I highly recommend Gavin’s lessons, they were very beneficial for me.
When I first started driving at 16 years old, I was an incredibly nervous driver, conscious of my driving abilities and my inexperience. Lessons with Gavin not only boosted my confidence and driving skills but prepared me incredibly well for all situations and conditions drivers face on the roads. Gavin’s extensive experience as a police officer and driving instructor speaks volumes for his ability to carefully and caringly instruct learner drivers who are just starting out on their driving journey. He cares for both the driving abilities of his students, as well as for their wellbeing, teaching to the abilities of every student and building incredible rapport with them and their families.
I am incredibly grateful for my driving experiences with Gavin. From a nervous 16-year-old to a confident P-plater, my confidence and comfort behind the wheel has grown more than I ever could have imagined it would, without his guidance. I have also found a love for driving manual cars and understanding the obligations of all drivers on the road.
Before having lessons with Gavin, I had done a bit of manual driving. However, I struggled with changing gears smoothly, and I found myself rushing through the motions rather than taking my time. Once I had started lessons with Gavin, I learnt how to properly control the car and transition smoothly through the gears. Nowadays, I am driving around more confidently, as Gavin has helped me gain confidence in my driving, by teaching me the correct way to drive a manual car and also encouraging me to be patient and to not be afraid to take my time.
Gavin is one of the most honest and dependable people I know. His new business is a great and much-needed initiative. He is highly skilled driver and teacher I would encourage anyone wishing to learn with Gavin to make contact and get started.
Thanks for all the classes! I'm sad I won't be driving with you anymore ;)
If anyone can teach someone to drive Gavin it is you. Very best in the business.
I just want to thank you for all the wisdom you have imparted on me, on driving and for life. Thanks for being the best driving instructor ever! I'm driving to Uni this morning!! Once again, thank you for teaching me, and for relaying the importance of not hurrying!!!
