I have been an instructor since 1999 starting out at BSM before leaving to start up Gold with Andy Heaton and Marcus Roper. I count myself very lucky to be an instructor, when I hear those magic words “I am pleased to tell you you have passed” I still get the same buzz now as I did when I started out in the industry. The look and reaction on your pupil’s faces is an incredible feeling. I like to have a laugh during lessons but I am totally aware That I am responsible for my pupils present and future safety. In most pupils cases a car can be the most dangerous object they may control in their life, with that in mind it is very important we prepare them for their future driving experience. As a team my pupil and myself must work together to achieve the goal of not just passing the test but to become an excellent responsible driver.
Outside of driving lessons I have been married since 1988 to my beautiful wife Lisa and have two children. I love travelling especially to the USA (the food and the roller coasters win me over every time). Sport plays a big part in my life, although I’m a bit old to participate these days apart from the gym. I am a massive AFC Bournemouth fan and love F1. I also like to watch a good movie or crash out with some tunes on the old sound system.
I live in Oakdale and cover the following areas: Poole, Lychett, Wimborne, Corfe Mullen and Sturminster Marshall.
