Your driving lessons will be delivered personally by Neil Parkes. Neil is a very patient, highly qualified and highly experienced local driving instructor who has achieved a top grade A/six check test on three occasions.
We can also help you achieve much more than a test pass. Gain a BTEC Award which will give you an extra qualification on your CV.

Neil will be your BTEC assessor who will coach and mentor you through the entire process from start to finish.
Here are a few words from your instructor:
“Hi, my name is Neil. I am married with two teenage daughters, hence the grey hair! I have been enjoying teaching and coaching both new and experienced drivers since 1990.
What can you expect from me as your driving instructor? I will treat you as an equal, listen to your views and ask you questions about them. I will have time for you, encourage you to believe in yourself and I will believe in your ability to succeed. I will never get flustered but I will be honest. I will take my job seriously, but not myself, as learning to drive and passing your driving test should also be fun!
I am motivated by a desire to contribute towards improving road safety and I will encourage you to develop an attitude of shared responsibility when using our roads. I also work for the UK’s number one training provider in road safety awareness, assisting in the delivery of the Safe and Considerate Driver Course, a scheme which allows the police to offer drivers an alternative to court prosecution. This has given me an understanding of why collisions occur and how we can avoid them. You will learn the key skills that will help you stay safe after passing your driving test.”
