A Bit About Your Perth Auto and Manual Driving Instructor

compass driving school cert IV qualified instructor

Barrie Kershaw comes with 20 years of experience in the transport industry working as a driver, transport supervisor and work place health and safety coordinator for a major transport company in Perth. In that time he developed skills in training and induction and in all aspects of transport and logistics. He then decided that by becoming a driving instructor he could make a difference, at ground level, to the rising costs to our community in human lives and resources, from road trauma in WA. A quote from Barrie: “I just want to teach skills and attitudes that may, one day, save a life”.

AMCAP has given the Hyundai i30 model we use a 4 star safety rating. The Hyundai i30 also utilises the latest in diesel engine technology and was awarded Car of the Year and Green Car of the year in 2007 by CarsGuide. In this very car, Barrie will have you drive all around Perth, going anywhere within Cannington , Midland and Mirrabooka and surrounding areas.

As the old saying goes, you never forget how to ride a bike. This principle also applies to cars, and cars go a lot faster. Our manual driving instructors are passionate about teaching new drivers the skills they will need.
