Hi, my name is Tom. Over the last 20 years, I have trained many family and friends to drive as it was something I enjoyed doing and found very rewarding. Prior to being an instructor, I worked for over 20 years in retail management, coaching and developing teams. I believe this extensive training experience and understanding how different people respond in each situation is invaluable when teaching others how to drive. I have trained people from all ages and backgrounds. My experience with driving includes auto and manual vehicles from cars to 24 tonne trucks. In terms of driving, I am looking to train drivers to be safe and confident in any situation. I believe in a proactive approach and also combine defensive driving techniques into my training. It's important to set goals and work towards them, this is what I do with each learner to help them to succeed. I enjoy knowing that I am changing people's lives. It is extremely rewarding when my students pass their driving test, they are all smiles!! It's infectious. I am married with two beautiful boys.
