Learning to drive is a big step, it is important you feel confident and safe from the first time you step into the car. My lessons are carefully planned before each session to suit your learning needs.
I am a member of the Driving Instructors Association and the Institute of Advanced Motorists and as such am kept up to date with changes within the industry. I have a commitment to continuous professional development.
My quality, reliable and structured training comes with a wealth of experience, and my relaxed, friendly style puts nervous drivers at ease and allows you to learn at your own pace.
Before we begin we will start with an eye sight test, you’ll have to be able to read a number plate from a distance of 20m for a new-style number plate or 20.5m for vehicles with an old style number plate.

I have experience teaching autistic people to drive and offer professional, patient and calm instruction, a stress free learning experience where pupils can relax and enjoy their lessons.
A diagnosis of autism should not in itself be a barrier to holding a driving license. Some autistic people may find the skill of driving extremely difficult, whilst others will be highly competent.
You must inform the DVLA if your disability affects your ability to drive safely, seek advice from your GP before applying for your provisional licence or visit driving medical conditions.
