When not in the car teaching driving lessons you can normally finding him tinkering with cars or spending time with his son. He loves all things to do with cars and probably spends more than anyone keeping his car clean!

Nothing says how good a driving instructor is like photographic proof, so here are Stu’s latest passes:

A Quick Q&A with Stu...

So Stu, why are you a driving instructor?
Ran in family for 30 years and seeing the enjoyment my father got from the job, made me realise there is more than a 9-5 job.

What’s the best part of your job?
Watching pupils progress from novice to test ready, seeing them grow to capable, confident drivers

What’s the worst part of your job?
Late cancelations/ no shows, it waste’s time and ultimately loses me money, sometimes having to book pupils in until 9pm at night is a real kick in the teeth when you get 2-3 cancellations meaning I could have went home earlier.

What did you do before you qualified as a driving instructor?

Security guard.

What’s the best car you have ever owned?
Bmw 120d.

What was the first car you ever owned and why did you pick it?
Ford Fiesta as it was cheap on insurance.

Name your perfect 5 car garage – remember one has to be a driving school car!
Mercedes a class (driving school car) My Fiesta ST (track car) BMW M5, Mitsubishi Evolution 10 and Audi Q5 for chill out days.

Track Car – that sounds fun!
It’s one of our original driving school car’s from back in 2005! My brother owned it for several years, it ended up on 142,000 miles and eventually a bigger car was needed. it sat around for 2 years before I evenutally managed to buy it after 2 years of nagging, it’s been fully stripped down and rebuilt with a new 2.0 150bhp engine, once the engines running sweet Ill look at the paintwork, in a year or two it will most likely face a turbo or supercharged conversion, driving school cars are great but it’s nice to be able to tinker.

When you aren’t out teaching people to drive, where can we find you?
In my garage tinkering with the track car, or of a weekend spending quality time with my little boy James.

Liverpool or Everton?

What’s the 1 thing you would change about your car?
Where do I start

Petrol or diesel? Why?
Diesel for the ease of learning, fuel economy and a lot smoother than most patrols these days

If you could send a message to your 17 year old self, what would it be?
That Fiesta needs a bigger engine!
