"Since qualifying as a driving instructor in 1992, I have enjoyed both teaching learners and training people to qualify as driving instructors. For the last 15 years I have been a part of the DVDS team and in 2012 I took over the company. I'm now more office based but I still continue to enjoy teaching people to drive."

"I've been a driving instructor since 1985. I have gained a wealth of experience over the years and still really enjoy teaching people to drive. I taught in a manual car for around 19 years before deciding to teach in an automatic. I pride myself in being very patient, reliable and easy to get on with."

"When I was made redundant from my previous job, I contacted DVDS and considered becoming a Driving Instructor. From that day in 2005 I have trained, qualified and worked with DVDS! As an instructor I cover a large area including Ipswich and Colchester and everything in between. I really enjoy helping people become good, safe and happy drivers."

Mario

Ford Fiesta
"Since qualifying in 2005, I have worked for DVDS and helped many learners to become safe and competent drivers. The best part is seeing their reaction when they receive their test pass certificate and knowing I have helped them to acquire the skills and knowledge to achieve this result. With years of experience as a driving instructor and 30+ years’ experience as a driver, together with patience and understanding, I can create the best learning experience."

Dawn

Nissan Micra
I qualified as a driving instructor in 2001 and joined DVDS. I am versatile with my teaching methods and am able to help even the most nervous of pupils, and I am able to put someone at ease very quickly. I struggled to learn to drive 20 years ago, which I feel now gives me the patience and understanding for those that feel they are not natural drivers. I now enjoy driving and enjoy passing this enjoyment onto those I teach..

I can testify to the quality of DVDS expertise! I started training with DVDS to be an instructor in late 2015 and since joining the instructor team in 2016 I have enjoyed training new drivers to test pass success! Previously I have worked in schools and trained in person-centered counselling, so I am really pleased to have found a career I love which allows all my previous skills and qualities to come together. Learners can feel assured that I am easy to get along with and happy in my work! Let’s get on the road!

I qualified as a driving instructor in 2013 and gained experience before joining DVDS. I love driving and enjoy passing on the skills and knowledge required to keep students/future qualified drivers safe and competent on today's very busy roads. I am flexible with teaching methods and aim to meet students needs. I like to keep the atmosphere in the car positive, relaxed and respectful. I enjoy working with all students, natural drivers and have plenty of patience for the most nervous.

I’ve been a driving instructor with Dedham Vale Driving School since Jan 2016, I came from the bus and coach industry with 30 years of professional driving experience and I’ve been a PCV trainer too. When I became a driving instructor I took full advantage of the experiences that I’ve gained from training coach drivers and now I’m passing my vast knowledge onto novice drivers. I will always enjoy seeing a pupil take their 1st lesson with me to the day they pass their test. You cannot beat that feeling.

Mandy

I qualified as a driving instructor in early 1990's. I joined DVDS in 2015 after taking a break from teaching for a while. I love my job and always try to make my lessons enjoyable and relaxed. Ever since I passed my driving test I have loved driving and I like to help all my pupils enjoy driving too. I have been told I am very patient and laid back. When I qualified as an instructor the examiner said he had really enjoyed my teaching style and any pupil I teach will be lucky to have an instructor like me!

Philip

"Hello Peeps.! I have been a driving instructor with DVDS since October 2016, initially as a trainee before I fully qualified in March 2017. I cover Clacton and surrounding villages/towns and also Colchester. I enjoy teaching people new skills, as a Football Coach and within school/community environments - teaching people to drive is a natural extension of that. I am a former police response driver. Particular strengths of mine lay in being very patient and being able to adapt my teaching and communication styles to meet the specific and individual learning needs of students, making the learning ‘journey’ easier and fun."
