Contact me now on… 07726 948493 About Me-: After 20 years of working in the hotel industry in countries such as Australia, New Zealand and France I decided that I wanted a change in career and trained to be a driving instructor in October 2004. Although I have left the hospitality industry I always remember who is the customer and who is paying for the lesson. I take great pride in my work and always do my best to ensure my students learn safe driving for life so when test day comes along you have the best possible chance of passing. As you can see from the table below I have a very high pass rate with most of my students passing 1st or 2nd time.
