"My son had 3 lessons with David at Roadwise. We used a professional instructor because we are from Golden Bay and we needed some practice in Nelson with a skilled instructor instead of just me.
They pick up on things I wouldn't and are probably a lot calmer. They also know exactly what is required of a new driver going for a restricted licence.

The first couple of trips I stayed out of the car and left them to it. Luan found David to be friendly, relaxed and a real bonus to his learning.
I went along on the last trip and found the same of David.
He really is a great person for the job.
It is with pleasure that I place this genuine feedback.
My son has passed his restricted and now driving his own vehicle confidently around town." - Jonathan
