Mike is so good – he’s part of our driving instructor training duo! ORDIT registered and a great track record on training both new drivers and new driving instructors!
I love my tennis. Got one slam(US) to do to complete the lot. Top of the list of things to do when we’re allowed to travel.
I’ve also just got a campervan with the help of friends and family. Currently doing it up. Hopefully explore this beautiful country of ours.
What’s the best part of being a driving instructor?
The best part of the job and the main reason I do it is to see the faces of my pupils when they’re told “I’m pleased to tell you you’ve passed”.
Your most memorable driving lesson?
It was the lesson before a 70 year old lady’s test. She desperately wanted to pass to get her independence after a bereavement. But was so nervous. It was a lot of calming talk. She then went on to pass. I’d like to say that I didn’t shed a little tear but I can’t.

Favourite teaching area?
What’s the worst part of the job?

Why did you pick your car to teach in?
The classic mini is my favourite car. Had 3 in my teens and early 20s, as I can no longer fit in one I love that the new mini was the next best thing. I love the fact that it’s different that the generic looking cars these days
