About Drive Like a Rockstar

After qualifying as an Approved Driving Instructor in 2010 and 'learning the ropes' for 18 months, I launched Drive Like a Rockstar in November 2012. 

I am currently a GRADE A Driving Instructor and I have helped over 200 drivers to pass their DVSA Practical Driving Test. 

I passed my Driving Test back in 1995 and I can still remember how it felt ! Amazing ! Since then I have never been without a car (and now a Motorcycle) and have probably driven millions of miles. 

I have since passed the Institute of Advanced Motorists Driving Test, The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents Standard Advanced Test (Gold Standard) and I am currently studying for the RoSPA Advanced Motorcycle test. I am a qualified BTEC Assessor for the Safe Road Skills and Attitude course, I am a registered Pass Plus Instructor and I can also teach U17 drivers at the fantastic First Gear training courses run by Derbyshire County Council. As well as these I carry out many hours of CPD which have recently included courses on these subjects : GDPR Training, Preventing Covid-19, InfectionPrevention and Control, Understanding Young Minds, The Three Principles of a Coaching Approach. 

I coach a proven syllabus which incorporates the DVSA 'Essential Driving Skills' with 'Roadcraft - The Police Drivers Handbook(I advise anyone wanting to learn to drive to a high standard should buy these two books) and I deliver the syllabus using the guidance of Ged and Claire's 'Who's in the Driving Seat' (this is my coaching Bible).


What does all the above means to you?... it means that ...


"I care about being good at what I do, so that you can achieve your full potential"
