Learning to drive is not just about getting a driving licence but is an essential skill for life. It may be needed to get that new job or just make it easier to get around without relying on buses or taxis. I strongly believe that a Driving Instructor should teach people the skills to drive for life and not just to pass a test. If you are nervous about learning to drive (which is totally natural), you will welcome my understanding and patient nature as I always go at your pace to achieve a positive outcome which helps to build your confidence.
In 2014 a new rigorous test was introduced for driving instructors called the ADI Standards Check to make sure that approved driving instructors are safe to give driver training and that they meet the new minimum standard set by the government. All driving instructors have to be approved and periodically assessed by the DVSA which is the same agency that will be conducting your driving test. Instructors are graded A, B or F (Fail) on their competence to teach. I am pleased to say that when I took this test again in October 2019 it resulted in another top Grade A pass which is achieved by only one in three driving instructors.
