Andy has been a driving instructor since 2004. He now specialises in automatic tuition and is passionate about client-centred learning. If gears and clutch are not right for you, for whatever reason, and you’re looking for an instructor who is very understanding and patient, then you are in the right place.
Andy will listen to what you want to get out of your driving. He will then help you achieve your goals in the ways that work best for you. Andy believe that everyone learns in their own ways, rather than the same approach for all. Having an interest in Coaching and Client Centred Learning, he qualified with a BTEC Level 4 Professional Award in Driver Coaching. This way of learning puts you at the centre of what and how you learn. It will make you a safer driver, more able to make your own decisions after your test.
Andy has also successfully completed the Mobility Course with QEF. This has given him an in depth knowledge of adaptations and techniques to be used to enable people with a variety of disabilities to be successful at driving.
Before becoming an instructor Andy worked in the IT industry. During this time he enjoyed meeting and communicating with people at all levels. His work included running training courses and helping people solve problems and this experience has helped him greatly with Driver Training. Andy looks forward to meeting each and every pupil.
Before moving to Dorset Susan lived and taught in South-West London. She now lives in Boscombe with her three children, her partner and a Dalmatian. Susan operates as a female automatic driving instructor. She covers the areas of Christchurch, Bournemouth and Poole – a wide area, because she can’t say “no”, when asked nicely.
Susan has also successfully completed the Mobility Course with QEF. This has given her an in depth knowledge of adaptations and techniques to be used to enable people with a variety of disabilities to be successful at driving.
Sues motoring career started when she marshalled at various motorbike events from club races to GPs. When occasionally asked if she’d ever get scared when teaching, Sue likes to reply that “nothing is as scary as a riderless motorbike hurtling towards you with only a straw bale (or another marshal) for protection!” In other words, Sue is still looking for the student who’d give her a challenge ;).
Apart from that, Sue loves teaching in Dorset as the roads are so varied compared to South London roads. Please ask for Sue if you want lessons that are fun and in a relaxed atmosphere.
