John (commonly known as "Zipper") has been an NT resident since 1972, starting as a Technical Officer with Telecom Australia in Tennant Creek, then transferring to Jabiru as the technical depot's OIC, and finally moving to Darwin's 24-hour control centre.
He left Telecom in 1990 to start a career in computer science, but stepped straight into Prime Minister Keating's "recession Australia had to have".
Employment was scarce in the recession years, so in desperation, after working as a motorcycle salesman and as a bank courier, he finally saw the light and became a driving instructor - and wishes he had done it much earlier.
John has provided driver training & education since 1995.
He has delivered a wide variety of training packages throughout the Northern Territory, including ESL students, the theory component of DTAL, heavy vehicles truck/bus tuition, endorsing Certificate III (driving instruction), assisting with training to Certificate IV and developing training materials relevant to the provision of the DTAL program.
In 2002 John started his own business operating in association with Connies Driving School.
(He trained in manual & auto cars in SA for about 12 months then moved back to the NT)
As well as providing the practical components of the NT's DTAL program, John provides the theory component at Darwin High School Taminmin College.
20 years experience in the Driver Training Industry in the Northern Territory and South Australia includes:
