I live with my wife Teresa in Southsea and have a grown-up stepdaughter who I acquired a half share in when I married Teresa. I keep fit by going to the gym and walking. One of my interests is travel with over 50 countries visited so far! Sometimes I have combined walking and travel with hikes of up to 100 miles in Ireland, Scotland, Wales, France, Peru and Nepal.
For the last 39 years I have made my living from driving and 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. But please note that all driving tests will 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
As the founder of driving-pro, I am a member of the following groups:
- The Driving Instructors Association
- Southern Driving Instructors Association
- Diamond Advanced Motorists
- ADI National Joint Council
- Disability Driving Instructors
- Road Safety GB
- Chartered Management Institute
My ultimate goal is to produce safe and effective drivers using my friendly and patient manner.
So you know what to look for on a first lesson I will be in either:
A white Hyundia i20 HV64WFL or if you are doing auto I will be driving a white Hyundia ix20 HN63NCD
