After teaching my daughter to drive I was asked to train as a Driving Instructor and join Adams Driving School.
I had a great apprenticeship with the previous owner Brian Arndt. I went on lessons for a year while studying to get qualified. I wanted to be confident in teaching how to drive before I would do it by myself.

I enjoy teaching in car and in class for the Defensive Driving Course – the interaction with people is stimulating, educational and enjoyable.
Every student is a different experience. I find the work rewarding and love motivating people to become safe, aware drivers and gain independence.
I see people change and gain confidence they didn’t have before therefore creating opportunities they would otherwise not be able to reach.
I get a huge buzz from people passing tests, The joy of a successful test is something to see and experience. The student's success is our success too. I know that it will change their lives and they can get to places and do things they couldn’t do so easily before.
We put a lot of effort into our Defensive Driving Courses - it is full on - enjoyable and packed with useful information from start to finish and the rewards are huge for the student.
Thank you olive for giving a amazing defensive driving course, I learnt so much, and it has really helped me even though i am not that bad a driver! for anyone who is young, go and do it!! you won't regret it Paula Chapman February 2014
I really enjoy helping people of all ages achieve their goals. Defensive
Driving Courses [DDCs] are great fun, and I get quite a thrill in helping a
mature driver to retain [or regain] their licence. During my previous job,
I was a qualified police driver and I think that I can bring skills learned
there to my instructional abilities today.

I just wanted to give my positive feedback and say thanks to Adams Driving School for helping me pass my Restricted Driving
Test (and pass it with ease). A special thanks to Dave for being a great instructor, being really clear and specific with all the info I needed in order to pass the test. In just the few sessions we had he was a massive help to me and I would definitely recommend him and Adams Driving School to anyone looking for the best when it comes to preparing for a driving test. Cheers! Klaus
