Instructor bio

Hi, my name is James. Instructing in both auto and manual vehicles since 2011 has provided me with a lot of knowledge and experience on our roads. I have worked for one of the larger driving schools, however I now run my own driving school independently. I love to teach others, the sharing of my knowledge and educating others to be safe and confident drivers is very important to me. I have taught many people from all different backgrounds and levels of experience, from beginners to international conversions, to refresher lessons, I am capable in all situations. I always make sure my learners enjoy their driving lessons in a calm, safe and friendly environment. By the end of each lesson, my learners know what they have learnt and feel that they have gone one step forward. Together we will build your confidence and experience and get you safely prepared for the driving test and a lifetime on the road.

Reviews

Ever since my first lesson, James has demonstrated professionalism and high levels paitence when teaching me not only how to pass my driving test, but how to be a safe driver overall. As a rebellious teenager, I always wanted to drive in a way which felt most comfortable, however James has never stopped drilling safe driving techniques until it became forever tattooed in my brain, and given his 30+ years of driving experience with no accidents, James sets a great example for us students. Not only was I able to pass my test with a perfect score, I have also received many compliments from friends acknowledging my safe driving skills, which I owe all to James as my driving instructor. To become a safe driver, you must learn from someone who really cares about your safety throughout your years of driving ahead, which is why I highly recommend James as a driving instructor.

James is an amazing instructor - his patient and thorough style of teaching has helped me become a better and safer driver. Instead of being purely test-focus, James always makes sure that I understand all the safety techniques to not only learn how to drive but how to drive safely. His friendly and calm personality also makes every trip fun and stress-free. His exceptional road experience and industry knowledge was a great help to put me at ease and develop my confidence in driving. I highly recommend James to anyone looking for a driving instructor!!

James was a very experienced instructor and I felt safe letting my daughter learn with him. I saw how her driving had improved significantly since the first time we had started driving. James was very encouraging, given her full control of the vehicle. When there were minor things she could improve on, James told her how to rectify such mistakes to prevent them from occurring in the future. I am very thankful for his driving lessons.

Best driving instructor that helped me pass my test in one go, I’m so grateful to have had James’ help. He is professional, experienced and extremely patient. I was terrible at driving and would definitely not have passed but James helped me correct everything from my steering to checking blind spots. James is the friendliest and funniest person and I have recommended many of my friends to him.
