Rob's Quick Q&A
Why did you train to become a driving instructor?
I wanted a career that was rewarding with job satisfaction and loved the idea of being able to teach someone a life skill
Favourite teaching area?
Favourite area - Anywhere around Southport or nearby. Its a nice area to live
Favourite lesson to teach?
Favourite lesson will probably be moving off and stopping. It’ll be great to get someone who hasn’t driven before up and running.
Did you pass first time?
I was 17 and did pass first time
What was your first car and why did you pick it?
I bought a 957cc Mk1 Ford Fiesta in Red. I bought it as it was done up to copy an XR2 with BIG spotlights. It cost me a fortune in repairs as the previous owner must have driven it like a rally car. I was young and naive !
If you could go back and give yourself any advice when you where learning to drive, what would it be?
Take your time, ask lots of questions if your not sure about something and always be aware of everything around you.
Recently I’ve been involved in Gas and Electric utilities, installing smart meters. But before that I was a DJ for 25 years, working for 20 of those as the resident DJ in Maloneys bar Southport !
Cyprus is my favourite place. Me and my wife got married there and we love it
Pizza or curry are joint favorites
Anything 80’s really, although I do like alot of other stuff too.
When you aren’t teaching, where can we find you?
I train in Krav Maga and Ju Jitsu, so spend alot of time at Shogun World Southport when I’m not working.
