Ross Padgham

Driving Instructor

Meet our instructor currently servicing Bendigo and the surrounding region, from Castlemaine to Echuca, and from Heathcote to Maryborough;

Ross is both a former Victoria Police officer and authorised Vicroads Licence Tester.  His knowledge of the Bendigo region stems from frequent regular visits there in the 70’s and 80’s, eventually leading him to move to live in Bendigo in 1999.

As a Police Officer, Ross learnt from Police driving instructors and has experience driving in many hazardous situations, often extreme.  This has filled him with a passion for road safety.

He has decades of experience driving in a wide range of vehicles, including trucks, and is now imparting his extensive driving knowledge and passion for road safety to a new generation of learner drivers.

Ross currently holds both a Certificate IV in Driver Training Instruction and a Working With Children Permit, has a great ability to teach others his knowledge, and maintains a calm, relaxed environment in the training vehicle.

He is available to teach 7 days a week, day or night, at a time that is convenient to you.
