All about Derek…
I’m married with two children. We love fun days out, catching up with family and friends and being active as much as I can!
I’m a former PE Teacher, having changed career to undertake a new challenge after 20 years! I also wanted to be able to be around more for my family and not miss out on too many special moments.
I am a real people person and I really thrive from being able to help. I especially enjoy supporting learners to overcome challenges, to be a part of the moment when everything clicks for someone and progress is made. It provides me with a great sense of achievement.
Colleagues and family members say I have a calm, patient and friendly approach to life.

Where should I start? Derek is an absolutely great instructor, very calm and friendly right from the start. Chatty as always to make people feel welcome and comfortable not just on the lessons but behind the wheel too! He is always happy to explain above and beyond what is needed to help keep progression after passing as he truly does care. It has been a pleasure week in week out to learn with Derek and helped me pass first time! Thank you! So if you live in the area and you’re looking for a top class driving instructor, look no further.

Derek is a brilliant instructor, he’s very calm and pleasant. Always early and if you do something wrong he will explain it in a good way so you don’t feel pressured. Highly recommended and it’s been a pleasure to learn from Derek.
