I’ve been a driving instructor since 2015 and wish I had discovered this career decades earlier.  I enjoy meeting people from all walks of life and helping them to gain their drivers licence.  It’s a privilege and a pleasure to support students to develop from nervous beginners to safe and confident drivers who enjoy their driving experience.  For some it can be life changing as it provides independence and promotes self belief - it’s great to be a part of that. Students find me patient, persistent and easy going.  I aim to explain the how and why behind driving test requirements so that students understand why they have to do the things asked of them.  My aim is not just to get them through the test, but to equip them to drive well and safely for life.  I’m married with two grown up children. I try to keep fit and love the outdoors.

Can’t recommend Barry enough! He’s been nothing but patient, understanding, informative, on the ball and encouraging. I really appreciate the positive energy he always has, while steadily pushing me to progress safely and confidently. Will be booking more lessons with him for sure :)

Barry was amazing and I would give 6 stars if I could. From the first lesson Barry quickly identified my skills and worked around my weak points, rather than going through the basics or going over things I already knew. I passed my test first try after 6 lessons and I wouldn't have been able to do that without Barry.

Barry strikes a really important balance between friendly, understanding and patient, while also giving you good, constructive feedback and not letting you get away with bad habits! He knows his stuff, and understands not just what you need to do to pass, but why it's important for your years to come on the roads. Thanks mate.

Barry gave amazing encouragement while also helping me work on the skills that needed improving. He helped me fix my mistakes and increased my confidence. I was very nervous about driving before Barry, now I’m way more confident and was able to pass my test. I reccomend Barry to anyone who feels they need a little encouragement!


Ethan

Took a couple lessons with Barry before taking my test. He gave good instructions and picked up on habits which I had and habits which I needed to build in order to pass the test. Happy to say that the lessons were definitely useful.
