I have 27 years driving experience and I have instructed for 17years.

I am a fully qualified ADI (Approved Driving Instructor) and therefore licensed by the DSA (Driving Standards Agency). I emphasise this for the following reason – The qualification process for the licence involves a rigorous 3 part testing procedure. On completion, the DSA awards a green octagonal badge (see below) which must be displayed in the window of any vehicle whilst it is being used for teaching and remuneration for that service is requested. The second stage involves a comprehensive driving test which lasts for approximately 1 hour. On completion of this stage, the DSA currently allows the PDI (Potential Driving Instructor) to teach pupils to drive, under the supervision of an established driving school or qualified instructor. They issue a temporary six month teaching licence to the PDI, but this can be extended, depending upon their circumstances. This temporary licence is issued to enable the PDI to practice their teaching techniques for the final part of the qualification process, where they are tested on their ability to teach via a role play test with a senior driving examiner (SE). In order to teach pupils, the PDI must display a pink triangular badge in the window of the vehicle they are using. Be aware that there are a great number of PDIs currently teaching, and they can be seen working as franchisees in many of the largest national companies operating in this country.

 
Test pass rates are like any statistic, as they can be manipulated to indicate whatever the user wishes to them to portray. Many instructors will promote 'High Pass Rates!' and/or 'High 1st Time Pass Rates!' in an attempt to convince you that they guarantee a pass, probably first time. However, they can ignore the fact that people have come to them after previously failing, work on the principle that "eventually everyone will pass", or even make the figures up as they go along. The national average pass rate is between 40 & 50%, and because it is to our mutual benefit that you pass, I consistently aim for and always achieve a rate well above that average, ideally 100%! Of course, I can only train you to drive safely and competently to the required test standard - how you actually perform on the day is up to you! Nevertheless, I do have a number of coping strategies for nerves and anxiety which can be provided for those that require them.
Again, this question cannot be answered specifically. The DSA currently recommend at least 40 hours tuition to achieve the required standard to pass the test, but everyone learns at different rates, and each of us perform well at varying disciplines. It will be my job to provide a program of learning which best suits you, and to monitor your progress until I consider that you are driving consistently at the level required to pass your test. Some may achieve this within 20 lessons; others will require much more tuition - I will advise when together we perceive that you are ready. I am aware that you won't, understandably, wish to spend any more money than is necessary, and will strive to achieve the standard required within your budget allowance!
Yes - always.
I will be glad to provide assistance and advice for these tests, and can loan training aids where necessary, or recommend suitable learning materials to you.
Now, lets clear this up straight away!! NO deals, No discounts, just simply straightforward value for money, pay as you learn and reap the benefits, How do you expect me to pay for lessons?

We would currently wish you to pay via personal cheque or cash, but intend to introduce an additional debit/credit payment system to the site at the appropriate time.
Of course, I run a professional school which has rules and regulations which make your learning progress the most effective possible, I will give you a copy of those so that we both understand what is expected of each other from the beginning, it eradicated completely misunderstanding or confusion.
Of course. As well as PassPlus, I am happy to focus a programme of advanced training specifically to your needs, motorways, the Manchester ring road, anywhere or type of driving environment which you feel uncertain about when you pass your test - I am happy to help you develop the confidence which helps you to stay safe and above all enjoy the experience of driving every day.
