I am a fully trained Approved Driving Instructor (ADI); Qualified teacher with a Bachelor of Education (B.Ed) Honours degree & Head trainer for the Chester Branch of Smart Driving Approved Instructor Trainers. I am a member of the Driving Instructors Association & CRB (Criminal Record Bureau) checked to ensure that I am a suitable & safe person to be working in this profession. I am a member of the Chester & Ellesmere Port Driving Instructors Association (CEPDIA).
Beware, a lot of instructors out there are still training and haven't passed the final teaching exam to fully qualify as an ADI and most never make it so eventually give up when their training badge expires or they fail the exam! Look for a green octagonal badge which shows that the instructor is FULLY qualified. (A pink triangle badge is for a trainee).
I am enthusiastic, friendly, calm and dependable . I work hard to keep up to date with what is happening in the profession so that pupils get the most out of their lessons. Most pupils come to me from personal recommendations but many also come to my driving school after having bad experiences with other instructors where they've been shouted at or pushed too fast so their confidence has taken a bashing. Others have hardly progressed at all and spent much of their lessons only driving 'out-of-town' or simply talking whilst parked up.
Don't worry if you are nervous, I will help you feel at ease and learn to be in control so that you feel much more confident. I enjoy pupils asking (relevant) questions and I have oodles of patience!
