Putting into use all my skills I started Intuition School of Motoring. It was an immediate success, my first candidates all passed their tests first time and I have never looked back since. I resisted the opportunity to employ other instructors as I cannot imagine anyone else giving the same degree of commitment as myself.
From a very young age, I used to sit and watch my father give driving lessons, which he did until retirement in 1994. I saw how he helped his pupils overcome their nervousness and other difficulties, how he enabled them to shine. I learned a lot from him and, with the necessary formal training, in 1989 qualified as an Approved Driving Instructor. I enjoy teaching and have an especially high pass rate with students of school age. For older pupils I offer a great deal of support and encouragement - in over 20 years I've never met anyone I couldn't teach.
I know how nerve-wracking learning to drive can be for some people, so I take time to understand their problems. Then I provide a calm, relaxed environment in which they can flourish. My greatest satisfaction is seeing someone who thought that they were "just too old" or "could never do it" go on to pass the test and enjoy the freedom that comes with the licence.
