Hi I'm Mike, I am licensed by the DVSA to give driving tuition and I am passionate about road safety.
I became a driving instructor because I wanted a job with real satisfaction and there is nothing better than seeing someone pass their test first time. I was also always being told by friends and work colleagues that I was a calm and relaxed type of person and that I would make a great Driving Instructor.
Before becoming a Driving Instructor I served in the Royal Navy for 13 years and then I continued to work at sea for a seismic research company for 16 years. I was lucky to travel all around the world on several ships and worked with fantastic people of all nationalities.
To tell you a little more about myself… I am a local lad and live just outside Scunthorpe in Broughton. As a boy I grew up in the village Bonby where my parents still live. I have a wonderful and supportive family including my wife Marlyn, two teenage daughters - Heather and Jessica and our crazy dog Tinker!
I love to spend time in my garden and doing projects to improve both the garden and our home. I am learning how to build furniture and have my own workshop. My Dad is teaching me how to do this and he is a mighty fine instructor!
I have been fortunate to be trained by LDC in the latest adult coaching and training techniques so you can be assured the training I give will be of the highest standard.
I chose to work with LDC because everybody is different and the LD System allows for flexibility in lessons so that you learn to drive safely at a rate that suits you. I aim to make every lesson enjoyable and as productive as possible. The LD System just helps me to do this more effectively.
Lessons are always conducted in a calm, friendly and relaxed manner as I firmly believe in making pupils feel at ease during lessons.
