Phil's Quick Q&A
Why did you want to be a driving instructor?
I looked into becoming a driving instructor in year 2000 and really struggled with the part 1 exam i did not get much support from the school I started with at that time, in 2017 my daughter was taking lessons and was having some issues so we arranged for me and her to go out and practice, from doing that with my daughter I decided that this is what I liked doing and made enquiries again to restart training to becoming a driving instructor, that’s when I found the driving academy and Stu, haven’t looked back since.
What’s the best part of your job?
The best part of this job is watching a student go from there very first lesson see them grow in confidence and belief and pass there test.
Worst part of the job?
Driving students home after they have failed their test. It’s hard seeing them deflated after all their hard work and getting stressed out before their test.
Why do you teach in a Juke?
I like the size it’s very comfortable being in it all day but I also find that my students like it also they say it’s easy to drive
Did you pass first time?
No I did not pass my test first time had an issue with and amber traffic light, I was 17 when I passed second time round.
