My name is Grahame, I'm a fully qualified instructor having been trained by BSM and I have 31 years of driving experience. i am also CRB checked
I appreciate that driving for the first few times can be nerve racking but my aim is to make it as stress-free as possible. Safety is always a top priority, mine, yours and everybody else's.
I am a very patient instructor and have found that people learn more quickly when they are in a relaxed atmosphere with clear rules. Not everybody learns in the same way, or needs the same level of support so I modify my training technique to what is best suited to you. I will provide the necessary support to enable the training to be absorbed by you, in order to help you achieve your goal - your full driving license!
Learner drivers spend many hours with their instructor and I always encourage feedback so that I continually improve and modify my teaching methods to suit the way you like to learn.
I can pick you up from home, work, school or wherever, but we will always go to somewhere away from the traffic for the first few lessons. There will be no other pupils in the car during your lesson. If you have a car that you can practice in, the person who accompanies you can come out on a lesson if they like. This will help if there is a particular skill that you need to concentrate more on.
The car has dual-controls fitted but they will only be used as a last resort if assistance is needed or if a dangerous situation arises.
The car is a brand new Peugeot 208 1.4 hdi diesel. It has many benefits which will help you on your lessons, i.e. good all round visibility, power steering which has been up-rated for driving instruction. You should find it very easy to drive.
I became a driving instructor because I wanted a job with real satisfaction and there is nothing better than seeing someone pass their test first time. I aim to make every lesson enjoyable and as productive as possible.

  Facts about Driving School Instructors - they are not all the same!  
Every potential driving instructor will be required to take 3 examinations; you get 3 chances on each part to pass.

Part 1 is an advanced theory test,

Part 2 is an advanced driving test, and

Part 3 is a test of teaching ability.

It is possible for a potential instructor to take parts 1 and 2 of the test, and then apply for a Trainee Licence (also known as a Pink Licence). They are then able to teach pupils, often charging full price, even though they haven't taken or passed the Part 3 exam. Many driving schools use instructors with Trainee Licences.

I have passed all 3 examinations at the first time of asking on each part and I am registered as an Approved Driving Instructor (ADI).I am also registered to give Pass Plus after you have passed your test.
