Carl is a very good driving instructor. He is reliable, honest, and very knowledgeable of the New Zealand driving rules and conditions. If you don't have a car, Carl will provide his vehicle for both lessons and the tests. Carl gives good and honest feedback and challenges students to succeed. Carl is also a good mentor. Besides driving, he also me how to sharpen knives properly. I maybe a slow learner but Carl has been a patient teacher. Will highly recommend him to other people.

Someone told it's not very cheap, but I personally think this is a decent price for a very good training. Carl is a very positive person able to find an approach to anyone, identify weak spots and keep every lesson interesting and not stressful. Today I successfully passed my restricted - I could totally recommend him as an instructor, especially if you feel really unconfident about your ability to drive. Everything is possible with a good teacher!

When we started driving classes, I was really impatient and wanting to get over it and pass my restricted test. There was a time where I wish we could swap faces just to pass the test haha. However, I am glad I listened to Carl.It was a great experience for me, even tho we had our days. He is a fun instructor, esp with the jokes he cracks. Well I finally passed my restricted & extremely happy. Thanks Carl. Thanks for having patience :) U not only get an instructor but a buddy too!

Came with a little bit of driving experience before starting with Carl but plenty of bad habits . Carl helped a lot with fixing those and teaching me how to drive properly. Teaches beyond the test and to anticipate situations in real life. I passed my restricted first time round. Carl was really helpful with tips and tricks for the test and also driving in general. Great Experience would definitely recommend. Thanks Carl-Feneel

Carl is a skilled and qualified instructor. Every one that I have recommended to him have passed there test the first time never twice. Carl is very honest, very calm when giving instructions and is very clear. He does not teach to only pass the test but to provide skills and knowledge on how to actually take control of the motor vehicle to minimize risk of accidents and for every road users safety. I caannot ask for any better instructor at such a CHEAP price. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Thank you

Where do I even start? First and foremost, the man is an amazing driver. Those 40 years of experience really show. Being taught by him is an experience. Being constantly reminded of what to be cautious of while driving really sticks with you in the long run. You might find yourself remembering the tips he gave you in the past. I don't even know where I'm going with this ( self deprecation, the go-to when you don't know what else to write ). Plain and simple, he's a good coach. Go for it.

Carl is an amazing driving instructor, he not only teaches you how to pass the restricted test, but also how to DRIVE. After failing first time, and being given carl's number by a friend i decided to give him a call, a great decision considering i passed with no critical errors second time round,after him pointing out lots of special tricks they try and pull on you etc. Great driving instructor!

Carl was an excellent driving instructor, he taught me not only the skills I needed but he taught me how to drive - he had a very holistic teaching technique that I found was particularly effective in helping me feel more confident in my driving skills. I found the length of the lessons was good in that they were long enough to get a solid amount of practice in, leaving me feeling as though I had progressed my technique from each lesson.Thank you Carl for helping me pass my restricted!

Carl is awesome! He is always patient to correct all my mistakes and remind me all the correct things that i should do. He is very supportive in terms of his teaching style and the person himself. l pass my restrict at once, l believe i cannot make it without his support. l will definitely recommend Carl to others who want to pass their driving tests

Carl is a great driving instructor. He is very experienced and knowledgeable. He knows all the different test routes and their pass rates which will help you choose the best place to take your test. He's strict and provides constructive feedback, with great attention to detail which is very helpful. I also found him very flexible when it came to booking lessons with him. Highly Recommended!
