"I highly recommend DriverEd to anyone who wishes to get their driving license! Ryan helped me with my theory to successfully pass the driving test and converting my international drivers license to a full NZ license. Honestly, before I asked DriverEd for help I couldn’t pass the theory but sitting their practice tests showed me the areas I needed to really study in. Thanks Ryan, I’ll send my sons to you when they’re old enough to drive"

Director & Driving Instructor
For me, driving has always been a source of enjoyment. At a young age, I was privileged to have the use of my grandfather’s paddock in the swamp on his farm. This was our go-to place on the weekends for my brother, cousin, and I. It was my Datsun 120Y versus his Ford Escort. From an early age, my dad taught me that driving was the most dangerous thing I’d do everyday and to do it responsibly. This is more true than ever on the crazy and heavily populated roads we have today.
My name is Ryan and I am the creator, Director, and lead Driving Instructor for DriverEd. Having spent 10-years in education, both in the classroom and in school leadership, I have a unique ability to help teach and guide new clients to become the safest possible drivers on our roads. I believe that we are all learners and every day is a new opportunity for us to discover and better ourselves.
At DriverEd our goal is to work towards making our roads safer, by providing customers with high-quality driver education.
I look forward to working with you as we journey together.
