I started in this business as I’ve always liked to train people and see the success on there faces when they pass, even before I was a driving instructor I was teaching Directors how to run their own business better.

I aim to keep you calm throughout all your lessons, giving you guidance each step of the way, coaching not just in lessons but also out of lessons with videos, and hints and tips in my clients group chat.

I always aim to have my student pass first time, yes its a great feeling but not everyone can cope with nerves on the day, I aim to always try and give the same effect as a test day so you are prepared for the day.

My Facebook page has all my reviews from past students and they have all commented on their own accord, I have not asked them to write anything specific.

Have a browse, get in touch, ask my anything and ill do my best to answer your enquiry

Your review is recommended to be at least 140 characters long

Q are you good with nervous people?

Yes is the straight answer to that question. I was previously a manager for 15 plus years and had a team of 15 or more under me. I am very patient & understanding. I take my time to reassure and make your learning easier and tailored to the student

Q Do i use your car for test?

Yes you do, unless you decide to take your own car

Q Is private practise worth doing?

Of course, this will help bring down your hours spent with me, it will increase confidence and a chance to practise more of what you have learnt already

Q Do i have to complete theory before my driving test?

Yes, you cannot complete your driving without passing a theory test first

Q how long will i take to pass / How many hours?

No one can answer this, it all depends on how well you develop as a driver, how well you take on board all the training and develop yourself into an independent driver, I will aim to push you as much as I can, safely as I can, private practise will help on this matter

Q I think im test ready can we book a test

ok, lets try a mock test, see how you get on, and if you can drive independently without making any serious or dangerous and within the 15 minors allowed, then we can go from there. Don't forget, driving tests you have zero help.
