My name is Mike, and I am a fully qualified Government Approved Driving Instructor (ADI).
I have lived in Barnsley all my life. I was born in Smithies and lived there until I got married, then moved into town. I now live in Barugh Green, and have lived here for 22 years with my wife and two sons.
I originally worked as a maintenance fitter at Hepworth Pipe Company, where I did my Apprenticeship. In 1985 I moved into forecourt engineering for 30 years, servicing all the pumps and other equipment on the Petrol Stations.
I did a Counseling course a few years ago so I am used to listening to people, and I enjoy helping them achieve their goals.
I decided to start teaching Driving, as friends told me, I have the right temperament to listen to students, and to look after them. My aim is to give my students an enjoyable experience in their quest to learn to drive.
I was 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.
