Hello, I'm Stuart Douglas, I'm the driving schools founder and Head Instructor. I've been an ADI qualified driving instructor for many years.
Before founding the Driving School I'd spent most of my working life employed as a trainer helping people develop new skills and reach their full potential, during this time I taught everything from Health & Safety up to training van, truck & fork lift drivers! A few years later, I decided on a chage of career, I retrained as a Driving Instructor which I've now done for a lot of years and still absolutely love doing, after all there's no better job satisfaction than hearing a pupil being told 'I'm pleased to tell you you've passed'. Each and every day brings new challenges, faces & stories.
I originally passed my driving test when I was 17 with a Driving Instructor that didn't really encourage me or explain what I was doing right (or wrong), I found this to be a big put off and did really nothing to help build my confidence or skills & to be honest there were times where I hoped he wouldn't turn up for my driving lessons. This experience made me determined to ensure that whatever I did in life had to be positive & enjoyable.
When I first started the Driving School I wanted to use my skills and experience to help people learn to drive in a safe, relaxed & enjoyable environment. I believe that people reach their full potential when they're relaxed and happy in what it is they're doing helping create happier, safer & more confident drivers. We are very passionate about what we do and this is reflected in our very high pass rates.
