I am David Cullen and i am the Owner and Managing Director of Pro Drive. I grew up in Ipswich and attended St Edmund's College and finished year 12 in 1988 with the greatest class of guys ever to attend St Edmund's. I am married to Rebecca Cullen and we had been together since i was 19 years old and we have 4 Daughters - my greatest achievement in life. I have spent my working life in the Transport industry predominately in the Car Carrying sector under our company Ipswich Car Carriers and we had many trucks working locally in Ipswich and Brisbane but also running the highway and mainly North Queensland. I came off the highway in 2017 to focus on the driving school which started in 2003 when i bought Mark Manders Driver Training and changed the name a few months later. 

I spend my down time at Willowbank where all the good stuff in life happens !! Drag Racing, V8's, Dirt Sprints, Circuit racing and so much more and all in a safe and controlled environment. I even get to have a go from time to time. 

I love my job - being able to assist folks getting into the transport industry and giving them tips on how to drive safely and survive this world of driving madness.
