Wayne has always had a fascination with motor vehicles, since back to when he was a young boy. From motorcycles & cars, tractors & trucks to aeroplanes & helicopters. Its no wonder then that most of Wayne’s professional career has been in the transport industry.

Becoming a Traffic Officer in 1980 (Highway Patrol) stationed in the Waikato and Central North Island, he gained valuable experience in many types of driving situations (pursuit and extreme manoeuvres) and various weather conditions from 30degree sunshine to snow & ice and everything inbetween.

In the mid-80’s Wayne was appointed Officer in Charge of the Waikato Motorcycle Patrol Fleet, the manager and coach of the Motorcycle Display Team and went on to be the longest serving Motorcycle Patrol Officer in New Zealand at the time.

In the early 90’s Wayne left law enforcement and turned an interest and hobby of flying aircraft into a career as a Commercial Helicopter Pilot.

Having worked in Christchurch, Wanaka and Auckland as a Commercial Pilot and Flight Instructor an unfortunate medical defect brought Wayne back down to earth and back to his lifetime passion of driving.

Wayne went on to drive trucks throughout New Zealand and Road-Trains in the Outback of Australia.

Returning to New Zealand, Wayne worked as a Testing Officer contracted to Driver Testing New Zealand, licence testing drivers in the Waikato region.

Then in 2001 Wayne established Holden Driver Training, servicing the greater Waikato area. With all his expert knowledge, Wayne made an impact on driver education with high pass rates in a friendly environment.
