A little bit about me:
I’ve lived and worked in the Portsmouth/Fareham area all my life. With my earlier career I must have driven much of the UK as a sales executive and manager, covering many miles over a period of 35 years. During this time training and mentoring played a huge part of my life.
Having sold my business in 2018 I looked to pursue a role in which I could help people of all ages gain confidence and independence. Becoming a driving instructor is just the perfect role for me. I’m calm, punctual, patient with a positive outlook on life. Also my local knowledge in abundance helps.
When not workingI love to play tennis at a local club. I’m a keen gardener and music and music and cars are also a passion of mine, `old skool` and old cars-classics!
So that you know what to look out for I drive a metallic light blue Ford Fiesta HV68UMY.
Amazing driving school. With the help of my instructor Jill I was able to gain confidence in myself to get on the road and use all her valuable knowledge to pass my test. Each lesson was made easier with her kind and friendly approach to teaching, which I’ll be forever grateful for. Would definitely recommend. SamRichard-2097
I had Jill as my instructor, she was fantastic, very patient and an all round great person.
After many years and lots of different instructors I firmly believe Jill is the reason I passed first time.
Jill’s demeanor, knowledge and method of teaching made me feel comfortable and confident from the first day we spoke, right up until she drove me home after passing my test. I’d recommend this company and Jill to anyone of my friends and family.
Thanks so much Jill and Driving-Pro. JackM-810
