    Learn To Drive

    I have been a DVSA SE Examiner (for L test & ADI & PDI) West London, for the last 6 years following a 20-year career in the Civil Service. Over those 6 years I have developed my teaching skills to achieve a higher than national average pass rate with my pupils at present my new private business Sapphire Driving Academy.

    I cover all West London and the surrounding areas and now concentrate solely on specialist ADI Drivers Training. I have also branched out by being involved in the national police scheme to offer offending drivers the opportunity to benefit from some re-training rather than face prosecution.

    My role now is as an on-road specialist Driving Instructor trainer for the new national 'Safe and Considerate Driving' course for who desires to become a qualified driving Instructors, a requirement for being such a trainer is to hold the Gold Award from RoSPA - the highest civilian Advanced Driver qualification.

    I am also registered as an Approved PassPlus Instructor with West London County Councils, which means that you can receive expert tuition from my Academy and qualify for a substantial grant towards the cost of the PassPlus training (if you are a West London resident). Unlike the majority of ADIs I offer all this ADI driver training in an automatic or Manual transmission car.

    As with other ADIs I have been through the rigorous Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checking system. Like many ADIs I deliver standard learner driver training at a very competitive price and with a high success rate.

    I am happy to discuss bespoke training for any ADI driver, whether on a provisional or full licence level. Perhaps you would like a confidence builder for teaching skills.

    Lessons are a minimum of one hour. I am happy to do one and half hours or two hours to be mutually agreed. I would not recommend any one lesson exceeding two hours for most pupils. Neither am I an advocate of very intensive training ("I want to start to learn and take my test in two weeks please"!) as it is simply not an effective way of teaching in my opinion.

    You will find that I spend the majority of my lessons with you driving, rather than us being parked up for lengthy periods having cosy chats! You get what you pay for —professional tuition from a professional instructor trainer.

    All lesson times and lengths, including any bespoke requests, will be discussed and tailored to suit your needs

    I also hold the Gold Award from ROSPA — the highest civilian Advanced Driver qualification with an comprehensive DBS checks.
