I have been teaching people to drive since 2000 and have been a member of the Institute of Advanced Motorists since 1997. Throughout that time, I have taught over 1000 people to drive, people from all walks of life and with differing abilities. I have an exemplary local reputation and operate to the highest of professional standards. Having come from a previous career in Road Transport, I believe being prompt and reliable to be of the utmost importance, and my tuition vehicle is always maintained to a high standard and updated regularly.
I believe I am now one of the most experienced Driving Instructors in the area. I would like to think I still carry out my work with the same enthusiasm as I did when I started, but with the benefit of that experience. I keep up to date with latest training developments, regularly attending courses. I am happy to teach people from all backgrounds and nationalities. I have spent my whole working life dealing with people from different countries, so limited English skills need not cause a barrier. I also have extensive experience dealing with students with Dyslexia and Autism. Indeed, I am more than happy to work with people with disabilities, so long as they feel they can manage a manual car.
Whilst I am very proud of my pass rate (which is normally between 70% & 80%), I am more than happy to work with students who find driving difficult. I cannot promise everyone will pass first time, although that is always my intention. However , I’m more than happy to work with students, who find driving difficult and may need to take more than one test, before passing.
I prefer to concentrate on the Shepton Mallet area but also cover surrounding villages, certainly in the BA4 post code. I can sometimes also cover the Wells area, depending on your exact location and times of availability - yours and mine!
