Hi, I’m a DVSA qualified driving instructor, qualifying in 2009. Covering mainly the Chichester and Bognor Regis areas, including the small villages around. I started car instruction in 2009 and joined 1st Castle in April 19 but prior to this I worked for many years as an instructor for another company and as a 4×4 instructor at various venues and companies, working under a BORDA qualification (British Off Road Driving Association). Enjoying several years at various Under 17 driving academies but now concentrating more towards on road instructing. Having grown up round a fleet environment and qualified as a Fleet Instructor, also conducting Taxi Tests for Arun and Chichester District Councils.
Prior to becoming a car instructor, I spent many years as a Motorcycle Instructor, starting in 1983 including being a DSA (as it was then, in the 1990’s) CBT Instructor from the early 1990’s. I’m qualified as a DIAmond Advanced Motorcycle Examiner, and can offer Advanced Bike instruction covering assessment rides to full or half day training. (see www.driving.org for more details)
Prior to all this – I’ve spent many years off road on motorcycles and trained as a qualified Mechanic – working on anything from a moped to very large Liebherr Cranes to Plant vehicles. Including obtaining my HGV licence (or C&E as it is now).
I thoroughly enjoy all aspects of the role as a driving instructor, seeing your confidence and abilities improve as the lessons progress all the way to the driving test and beyond. I’ve also enjoyed helping several people with special needs over the years.
Current Tuition vehicle – Nissan Note 1.5 DCI.
Looking forward to becoming “YOUR” driving instructor!
