My name is Michael and as the owner of STARTDRIVE Driving School, I am committed to providing students with a safe, comfortable and enjoyable learning experience that will get them driving competently, confidently and safely. I provide both Automatic & Manual cars as require. My primary concern is always the safety of the student, and so all my cars are properly equipped with instructor pedals, and all cars are maintained by qualified and licensed mechanics, to ensure that they are always in a roadworthy condition. As attested to on the Our Learners page, my students are always extremely pleased with the results of both their and my efforts in achieving success in their (PDA) Practical Driving Assessment.
I am also extremely proud of the fact that my I consistently have a greater than 90% success rate for students attempting their drive test for the first time. Please do not hesitate to contact me on 0488 991 684 or using form in contact page should you have any queries.

I have been a fully qualified driving instructor in WA since 2012. Having obtained Certificate IV in Transport & Logistics (Road Transport – Car Driving Instruction) TLI41210 in Australia. As Driving Instructor I started in Mandurah in 2012 and in 2013 I moved to Shelley/Perth.
I have 39 years experience driving in a diverse range of vehicles as well as a variety of road and weather conditions. I lived many years in the UK and I have driven many type of vehicles including luxury cars in London providing airport transfers service. From the busy streets in London to the other parts of the UK,

I get thousands of miles driving experience in the UK-Roads.
