I enjoy working with Murri’s on the Move as we are a tight unit working together sharing ideas and experiences to bring the best ways of teaching to our students. I believe our logo a culture for safe driving, is not just a catch phrase but that we as teachers take on a responsibility to ensure a future generation of safe and responsible drivers.

I enjoy the one on one connection teaching learners to be safe drivers. Having taught my own son provided me the understanding and skills needed to be a good driver trainer and I really enjoy it. MOTM are a community focused organisation and their team are united in their principles. I’m looking forward to working with them and becoming part of their team.
