Instructor Profiles

Nigel :

I live in Portsmouth and have two children. I enjoy keeping in shape, which has become more challenging since hitting the big 5-0! I particularly enjoy martial arts and have been practising for more years than I care to remember!

I have an extensive background in teaching/training adults and hold numerous qualifications including PTLLS and City & Guilds in Communication and Conflict Management.

I became a driving instructor because I relished the thought of a new challenge and I’m passionate about helping people reach their full potential and acquire practical, life-changing skills. Passing your driving tests ticks both of those boxes!

The skills I have developed whilst teaching adults for the last 20 years have been invaluable in teaching my pupils to become safe and confident drivers for life. I hope to see you behind the wheel soon.

Doug Drinkwater:

Hi and thanks for checking out our website. I live in Southsea and have 3 grown up children. When I am not instructing I like to relax with friends. I have many sporting interests including Judo and Karate in which I hold black belts.

As a Driving Instructor I have been teaching now for over 24 years and in that time have successfully passed hundreds of people from all walks of life. In addition to that as a trainer of other Driving Instructors I have had over 30 ADI`s through their exams.

As part of my own training I have passed 4 advanced Driving Tests. One of these is the `Cardington Grade A` which is considered to be the hardest civilian driving test and only open to Driving Instructors.

My main passion in life is to teach people of all abilities to be safe and confident drivers.

I try to keep fit by going to the gym and walking. One of my interests is travel with over 50 countries visited. Sometimes I have combined both walking and travel with hikes of up to 100 miles in Ireland, Scotland, Wales, France, Peru and Nepal.

For the last 35 years I have made a living from either driving or teaching driving. As an Instructor I welcome both difficult questions and pupils. I have some experience of teaching those who are deaf and without speech. If English is not your first language I will try to learn some of yours. At the moment I have some Arabic, Bengali, Spanish and French. Note all driving test must be in English.

As part of my own training I have taken and passed:

  • Diploma in Driver Education
  • BTEC Level 4 Driver Coaching
  • DIA Diamond Advanced Driving Instructor
  • DIA Diamond Advanced Driving Examiner
  • DIA Fleet Trainer
  • The RoSPA Diploma in Advanced Driving Instruction
  • Road Safety GB Behavioral Change
  • C & G Further and Adult Teachers Certificate Parts 1 & 2

I am a member of the following:

  • The Driving Instructors Association
  • Southern Driving Instructors Association
  • Diamond Advanced Motorists
  • ADI National Joint Council
  • Disability Driving Instructors
  • RoSPA
  • Road Safety GB
  • Chartered Management Institute

 When teaching I like to think I produce a safe effective driver in a friendly and patient manner.

Glen Robbins:

Hi, I am a husband for the last 37 years and a father for 34 years. I say this as positive proof of my patience and tolerance.

I qualified as a driving instructor in 1985 and have worked continuously in the industry ever since. Apart from teaching learners I have also spent the last 25 years teaching trainee driving instructors. They liked the way I did that so I was then asked to start teaching other driving instructors to train, trainee driving instructors.

My qualifications include:

  • ADI Grade A
  • DIA Diamond Advanced Instructor
  • Cardington Grade A Advanced Driver
  • NVQ Assessor and Internal Verifier
  • IAM Advanced Driver

But most importantly of all’ I have the patience of a saint with people who give their best. All this and an endless supply of bad jokes.

Mark Parnel:

I have lived in the Havant area all of my life

I’m happily married and have two grown up children son and daughter plus a sweet little granddaughter.

In my spare time I enjoy tropical fishkeeping, watching movies and eating out with my wife and family. Other interests include walks, BBQs and family picnics in the summer.

I have a great passion in my job as an ADI and get great pleasure in teaching and helping pupils of different ages achieve their goals in passing their driving test.

I became an ADI in 2014 following my previous position for 15 years as a mill manager in a busy furniture company this involved training and coaching adults to help them reach their goals aspirations to help further their career.

Now I use these skills for safe driving tuition in a light and friendly atmosphere.

Hope to see you on the road soon

Greg Wise :

I live in Denmead with my wife and son. I enjoy playing musical instruments, piano and guitar, and listening to a broad range of music.

In my spare time I enjoy reading, walking, family time, watching movies, and have recently discovered home-brewing my own beer.

I began training as an ADI at the beginning of 2017, after working in the IT industry for 24 years. This has given me a great insight into technology and how it can be applied in the real world.

I love all things car-related, and have even had a couple of flying lessons – which have been a real eye-opener! I am hoping to do a few more over the next few years, but my real passion is with driving.

I am looking forward to a long and successful career as a driving instructor and driving-pro have given me a great opportunity to achieve this.

Gav :

I’ve lived in and around Portsmouth all my life, so I know the area well. I have a grown-up daughter who I enjoy spending time with, usually at the cinema or curry house! I love jazz music and classic cars, and can while away many an hour listening to Jazz FM while browsing classic cars on eBay. I also enjoy dinner out with friends and the odd car show when one presents itself.
My entire career has been focused on cars and vehicles. I worked in the motor trade for many years and have 12 years’ experience of driving artic lorries. Once you’ve manoeuvred one of those down a single track lane, every other driving task seems easy!
Over the last three year years I’ve been teaching friends to drive. I really enjoyed it and was good at it too, so I decided to become an instructor full time. I got in touch with Driving-Pro and with their help and a lot of swatting up, I passed my exams and qualified as an instructor. I now look forward to meeting new people and helping them learn how to drive and be safe on the roads.

Danny Farr:

Hello, I’m Danny. I live in Portchester (where I grew up) and I have 2 amazing daughters called Maddie and Lola. I love sports and to keep fit I play squash and occasionally I play in the Hampshire league. My other love is football and I am a life long fan of Manchester City (I’m not a glory hunter)! Before becoming a driving instructor I worked as a retail manager for 24 years. This involved me training and developing people to become the best they could be and that is what I will bring to my new career as a driving instructor to my pupils. I’m calm, patient and friendly and will make you feel at ease behind the wheel. Hope to work with you soon
