The difference a great driving instructor can make to your ability to drive cannot be understated. It’s not simply about getting through your test. Gary takes an holistic approach to instructing and works on your confidence behind the wheel.

He will focus on your ability to foresee potential hazards and your knowledge of road rules and regulations. This leaves you not only having passed your test, but with the confidence and experience needed to be a good, safe driver.

Some driving students approach their driving lessons with trepidation and being nervous behind the wheel can lead to problems. This is why Gary’s approach is tailored towards reducing any fears and giving you the skills to be able to drive safely and feel confident that you know what you’re doing.

Individual Driving Instructors vs Driving Schools

By using an independant driving instructor such as Gary, you avoid having to pay any kind of franchise fees to a driving school. This means his prices are far more competitive. These schools also often use trainee driving instructors, but of course they don’t tell you that.
