About Me

I qualified as a DSA Approved Driving Instructor (ADI) in 1994 and have been working full time teaching people to drive in the Bury St Edmunds area since then. I am a non smoker.

Since qualifying I have continued developing my skills and have gained the following qualifications:

  • ADI grade 6 ( top grade) awarded by the DSA
  • 7307 Adult Teaching Certificate
  • RoSPA Diploma in Advanced Driver Training
  • DSA Fleet registered Instructor
  • Appointed Person First aid Certificate
  • SAFED van driver trainer

As well as teaching learners to drive I also train and coach driving instructors and work with driving offenders on the National Driver Improvement Scheme.

For tuition I am currently using a Nissan Micra. I chose this car because it is comfortable, has good all round visibility, and is fitted with air conditioning. It has dual controls installed and is insured under a special Driving Instructor Tuition Policy for business use.

I have signed up to the DSA Code of Conduct and am a member of the following national driving instructor organisations: “The Motor Schools of Great Britain” (MSA) and “The Driving Instructors Association” (DIA)
