I highly recommend Shane to anyone seeking driving lessons throughout their learning experience! Shane continued to exceed my expectations of a driving instructor and I will definitely miss his driving lessons! He is a highly skilled teacher with many previous driving experiences that allowed him to provide me with such an extensive amount of knowledge about becoming a safe driver! Shane has majorly guided me through my learning stages, explaining situations in a way that my parents may not have been able to express as this came as second nature to them. He consistently provided me with a clear and effective way to approach driving situations, developing goals after each lesson on how I could further my driving skills. Shane consistently remained patient throughout all my experiences when learning, applying a resilient attitude towards the growth of my driving. I always enjoyed and looked forward to lessons, where my knowledge and perspectives would be broadened through his storytelling of previous life experiences. Not only does Shane effectively prepare you for your driving test, he shifts your focus further than the ‘test’ to adopt safe driving habits for learners to guide them through their future stages of driving. For anyone seeking a driving instructor, I highly recommend Shane!
