Instructor bio

I became a Driving Instructor after a thirty five plus (35+) year career in the transport industry, firstly as a driver then a senior manager. During this time I raised 4 children and now have 5 grandchildren. I became a driving instructor 7 years ago after instructing my children and a number of other family members all of which said it was a fun experience and I had a real skill at teaching them to drive. I also, found great enjoyment in passing on my years of driving experience as well as being able to influence those that I teach become better drivers. As a result, I have an average learner pass rate of over 90%. Personalised Driver Training was founded on the premise “not all learners learn at the same pace” so all my lesson plans are tailored for the individual, this allows the learner to progress along the learning journey without pressure ultimately delivering a competent safe driver.

If your looking for someone who gives thorough and detailed advice Mick is your guy. He matches his wealth of experience on the roads with a super easy going and relaxing teaching style. If your like me, super nervous and anxious when it comes to driving in general, I can't stress it enough Mick is the one to choose. I just sat my P's test and got everything correct, it says a whole lot more about Mick than it does about me. He's a great driving instructor but an even better bloke

Mike has been a fantastic trainer. I am a middle-aged woman who dreaded driving and never learned how to drive. Mike, quickly realised that , altered our training route and helped me build my confidence before taking me on a 60 and higher zones. He is very patient, engaging, and ensured I understood the consequences of decisions I took while driving. He helped me develop road/traffic sense which eventually helped me plan my actions while on road. This quickly built up my confidence . Mike is also very accommodative. Sometimes I used to have a training route in mind and even though it was a little longer and took around 65 mins, Mike was willing to help me learn in those routes. This again helped me feel confident to drive on roads that I always thought were complex. I passed my test in first attempt and I can't recommend Mike enough. He is a phenomenal trainer who really reads their students and tailors the classes accordingly.

I really enjoyed my lesson with Mick. He put me at ease and took the time to explain things where and helped me to correct them. Fantastic teacher!

Mick gives detailed but simple instructions, and as I am preparing for my Ps test soon he has been making sure I know all the key test spots and the little catches along the way. Thanks Mick!
