"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."
"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."
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 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!
