I am a fully qualified driving Instructor, having retired from the South Yorkshire Police following 30 years of service as a Police Officer. For a significant part of that 30-year service, I have held a Class 1 advanced driving permit and undertaken many specialist driving courses. I have worked in many parts of the force including over seven years as a Traffic Officer.

As part of the process of becoming a qualified driving instructor, I have passed each of the examinations on the first time, attaining 100 % in the theory exam.

I like to consider myself as friendly, approachable and unflappable when things get a little ragged, able to bring calm to what might seem like a chaotic environment and explain and make sense of complicated motoring issues. I am a family man living locally with my wife and family.

The style and delivery of my tuition is nothing less than I would expect for my own family. My training is designed to meet your individual needs and ability. Driving once mastered is fairly simple, learning can present something of a challenge. Training will be delivered in bite-size chunks so you can learn at your own pace. Please expect to work hard. Once you have mastered one chunk we will quickly move on to the next. I will not ask you to do anything I do not think you are fully capable of.

The vehicle in which you learn is fully equipped with dual controls ensuring your safety at all times. Training is tailored to your needs. I take pride in assisting all students to realise their potential and achieve independent motoring.
