I have three grown-up children. In my spare time I like to relax with friends. I also have many sporting interests including running for charity, Judo and Karate in which I hold black belts.
I have been a driving instructor for over 30 years and in that time, I’ve taught hundreds of people, from all walks of life, who have gone on to pass their tests successfully. In addition to that, I also train others to become driving instructors, which has resulted in over 30 ADI`s through their exams.
As part of my own training I have passed four 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 goal in life is to teach people of all abilities to be safe and confident drivers and create a relaxed calm learning environment. You never get bored of the thrill of hearing another student has passed!
I drive a White Hyundia i30 registration number EJ66 FLX so you know what to look out for.
Have a read of a couple of my reviews:
I have had Doug patiently and safely mentor me through the journey that is learning to drive. I couldn’t have asked for a kinder more understanding teacher. He hasn’t just passed on the skill of driving he has passed on his attitude and values with regards to driving, which is humbling and has set me up for my driving life. I highly recommend Doug and the company to anyone wishing to obtain thorough authentic driving skill! Thank you sir! Joshua G
I would highly recommend driving pro to anyone, especially Doug because I had such a great experience! Doug was always great to chat to, flexible with my busy lifestyle and always encouraging me when I wanted to give up (glad I didn’t!) Getting ready for my test as well was scary but was reassured and had in depth lessons for everything I needed to know for the test. Would always look forward to get out driving and had lots of fun in the process! Chole L
