I adapt my teaching style to meet your learning style. This will help you gain a valuable life skill and change your way of life and job prospects. I really enjoy meeting lots of different people.

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!!!

Learning to drive is as rewarding to me as it is to you. It is great seeing your confidence in driving increase with every lesson. It is a skill for life that makes you independent.
