Cristian Vasille

A little bit about me:

I am originally from Romania but Portsmouth is my home now and I love it. I am the proud father of a lively 9 year old boy who I would do anything for. In my spare time I like to box, ride motorcycles and when possible spend time outdoors. My ambition at some time in the future is to ride a motorcycle around the world.


In Romania I am proud to say I served in the army and they even let me drive a tank!  After leaving the army I became a nurse. This wasn’t for me so needing a change I came here for a new and better life.


I have had a lot of experience training people in my previous roles. In that time I have driven most things from tractors to tanks. And once you have driven a tank, getting someone to drive a car should be easy.

Big thank you to Cristian who help me pass my driving test. He was very professional and friendly. He made the lesson enjoyable and was very flexible with my demands as i was travelling from Guildford. I strongly recommended Cristian. Cedric S

Prior to beginning lessons with Cristian I had failed my driving test twice. Cristian was very patient and helped me to learn the simplest and most efficient way to complete manoeuvres and build my confidence driving. I have just passed my test on my third attempt thanks to Cristian’s instruction. Grace Taylor
