"I am a grade 5 DSA ADI and have been instructing in Dumfries and Galloway since 2010.
I have a background in equine/canine and human behavioural management and assertiveness coaching, with a lot of experience in teaching practical skills."
DSA ADI offering driving tuition in the Dumfries, Dalbeattie, Castle Douglas and Kirkcudbright areas.
I offer a client centred approach to learning, which means your lessons are based on your own unique learning style (Visual – Audio – Rote – Kinaesthetic). We will use methods and material that are most suited to you and allow you to obtain the most from your learning experience.
My aim is to allow you to develop into a safe, confident, assertive and conscientious driver, and to pass your practical test with the knowledge and understanding to continually develop your driving (life) skills in our ever changing environment.
You will learn to understand how your actions affect others, and how their behaviour affects you, as well as how attitudes (yours or other’s) can help or hinder your driving.
Defensive Driving? It’s about knowing your vehicle and what it can do for you. It’s about knowing your skill level and how to drive within it. It’s about using the road and what you see around you. It’s about responding to potential situations developing, rather than reacting after they have. That all sound a bit boring? It’s about fun! It’s about blocking up (gears) as well as down, getting out and away, knowing when fast is safe and when slow is a four letter word!
I have held a full driving licence for vehicles up to 7.5 tonne and a full motorbike licence since 1983. I have experience in transport and logistics, from working as a motorcycle courier in the city to transporting precious and valuable cargo nationwide. I set up my own business in the transport industry when I was 19.
