I started New Starters Driving School in 2010. I believe in making "Learn to Drive" as easy and fun as possible. I enjoy the satisfaction of helping people change their lifes for the better.

I find teaching people to drive very rewarding and fulfilling.

I love teaching people a skill that will be with you for the rest of your life.

I get a real buzz from helping people to learn to drive.I am very aware no two people are the same and I believe that learning to drive should be fun.

I find giving people the freedom to drive and achieve their goals a very rewarding experience. The ability to not work as a standard 9 to 5 helps me to give my pupils, lessons at times which suit them, while working around my family and lifestyle commitments. I enjoy the fact I have a mobile office - no day is ever the same!!!

I enjoy being a driving instructor because, from seeing the students grow with there driving skills and confidence at the first time behind the wheel to passing there test and taking off the L plates you get a great sense of fulfilment knowing you’ve helped them to get there.

I take great privilege in teaching a student a skill for life and watching then blossom with confidence as they drive towards there goals of passing their driving tests and becoming a safe and confident driver on the roads.
