About Us

Paul Stenhouse

Paul is a fully qualified NZTA Endorsed instructor. He assesses your strengths and points for development. From this assessment a course can be tailored to your individual needs, to support and develop your competency as a driver.

Whether your goal is to:

  • Prepare for your Restricted Drivers Licence test
  • Learn to Drive from first experience
  • Travel on our roads safely during your holiday
  • Obtain your International Licence
  • Support your employees in company vehicle
  • Have the confidence for your Senior Driving test

Paul has the patience and expectation that sees the teenager listen, the elderly feel comfortable and the ESOL speaker understand NZ road code in practice. His work and life history has seen him work with a wide range in age, demographic and cultures. There’s also his Scottish humour to get you through the tricky bits!


Selwyn Driving School's vehicle has dual controls so that Paul your instructor can let the driver learn with increased independence but the knowledge of safety at the forefront, coupled with the highly regarded safety rating that the Holden Barina provides.

Should you wish to learn in your own vehicle this option is also available, in either manual or automatic.

It is with the combination of these features that we confidently put ourselves forward in the life skill of driving in the extreme variety and sometimes unpredictability that NZ roads provide. We take the road toll seriously and see our job in the minimising of this as essential and one to be valued.
