Learning to drive with me is a pleasure because I enjoy using my experience in driving to help others and I still get a thrill when each student passes.
Born in Cheadle Hulme, I have lived in Verwood since 1995. I successfully stood for election to Verwood Town Council in 1997, became Deputy Mayor in 1999 and had the honour of becoming the Town’s Millennium Mayor in 2000. I eventually stood down from the Council after 10 years loyal service to the Town’s people in 2007.
My hobbies are Golf, Motorsport, Chasing DX on the 10 Metre Band and mobile on the 2m VHF & 70cm UHF Bands (G4TMF), Reading and as my wife puts it, Playing on my Computer; which is really updating data and fine tuning my website which I designed and published.
Nineteen years ago I trained and qualified to be a Registered Approved Driving Instructor after leaving the Insurance industry and I have a proven track record with a higher than average pass rate.
I teach lessons in a Hybrid/Automatic air conditioned dual controlled car and offer a door to door service from your home, school/college or workplace from Monday to Friday and the occasional Saturday should it be necessary. Tuition charges reflect the quality of tuition received. You can also purchase Gift Vouchers for Christmas, Birthday presents etc.
I am patient and understanding, have over 45 years driving experience and welcome those who may be a little (or very) nervous. I have taught people of all ages and all abilities, 17 - 75+. From 2009 - 2019 I was a Dorset Police Driving Instructor assessing their Clients who had opted for an Educational Driver Awareness Course, as it was known then, instead of facing prosecution.
It doesn't matter whether you are a beginner or just want a few hours of refresher lessons. I am a Registered Pass Plus Instructor and can offer this course. I offer theoretical as well as practical training for learners and supply training/study material free of charge. 14th August 2018
After five years since I was last checked as a Fit and Proper person to deliver driving lessons I was invited to attend another check at the Bournemouth Driving Test Centre. I am pleased to announce that I passed the Standards Check Test and was awarded the prestigous
"A high overall standard of instruction demonstrated"
