Meet the Zebedee Team

Graham Alexander

Driving Educator &
Zebedee Driving School Manager

Graham has his "I" endorsement as well as being an associate member for IAM (International Advanced Motoring) and a full member of NZIDE (New Zealand Institute of Driving Educators). He offers lessons five days a week in both automatic and manual cars.

Graham spent 30 years in the printing industry before moving into driving education, where he found a passion for teaching the youth and supporting them to become safer drivers. Graham strives to be the best driving educator in Christchurch and not just “another driving instructor.”

Graham has developed a vast knowledge of driver training from working in the industry since 2016, teaching the requirements to support students to overcome a range of obstacles and challenges within their learning/driving as well as the test requirements and process.

Graham continues to build on his driving skills and knowledge with professional development through NZIDE and the IAM driver training programme.

Keys Kerdemelidis-Kiesanowski

Driving Educator

Keys has his "I" endorsement and started as a driving educator with us at Zebedee Driving School in June 2023. He offers lessons up to four days a week in automatic cars.

Having spent over 40 years as a paid professional firefighter driver, Keys is well-versed in driving under many situations. He has also seen the consequences of driving errors, and with that experience comes the patience and calmness that greatly assist with teaching new learners.

As a father of four, Keys has taught each of his children as well as several others. He recently engaged Zebedee to help with the final touches for his last son's driving skills. Graham was so impressed with Keys' teaching skills that he offered him a position as part of the Zebedee team. Several months passed while Keys obtained his "I" endorsement on Class 1 to Class 6 licenses.

Keys looks forward to helping many driving students obtain the freedom and self-confidence that come with the responsibility of driving.
