A little bit about me:
I’ve lived in and around Portsmouth all my life, so I know the area well. I have a grown-up daughter who I enjoy spending time with, usually at the cinema or curry house! I love jazz music and classic cars, and can while away many an hour listening to Jazz FM while browsing classic cars on eBay. I also enjoy dinner out with friends and the odd car show when one presents itself.
My entire career has been focused on cars and vehicles. I worked in the motor trade for many years and have 12 years’ experience of driving artic lorries. Once you’ve manoeuvred one of those down a single track lane, every other driving task seems easy!
Over the last three years I’ve been teaching friends to drive. I really enjoyed it and was good at it too, so I decided to become an instructor full time. I got in touch with driving-pro and with their help and a lot of swotting up, I passed my exams and qualified as an instructor. I now look forward to meeting new people and helping them learn how to drive and be safe on the roads.
I drive a white Ford Fiesta Zetec registration number GJK 86 so you know what to look.
My driving instructor Gav was fantastic! I passed my test first time with only one minor driving fault all thanks to him. He prepared me very well, including going through “show me, tell me” questions in detail, taking me on a variety of potential test routes and making sure to help me with any difficulties and challenges I had. He was incredibly generous with his time and when I got nervous or lost confidence in myself, he always believed in me and helped me through. I would highly recommend him to anyone wanting to pass their test! Thank you Gav! 😊 Sioned
GAV was a fantastic driving instructor. I can honestly say I enjoyed my driving lessons, especially after a long work day. Gav is a very empathtic, light-hearted and patient driving instructor. He was patient with me every single lesson – even when I asked stupid questions or when I made the same mistakes over again. Plus, Gav was always flexible to work around my hectic work schedule. I passed with one minor 🙂 Thanks Gav! Abigail
