In 2018, having completed my training and qualified as an ADI, I retired from being a Project Manager in IT and took up driving instructing as a part-time career whilst being semi-retired.

Driving Instructing is not my main source of income. I do it because I enjoy it, not to make money out of you. I am pretty sure my pupils enjoy the lessons too. Taking lessons only 20 hours per week gives me time to offer more than just driving lessons. I take time to prepare each lesson beforehand and provide useful follow-up material afterwards, including dashcam clips for post-lesson review.


As well as preparing you thoroughly for the Practical Driving Test, I offer help with preparation for the Theory Test as well, including free access to Theory Test Pro, a highly realistic online simulation of the UK's driving theory tests. It contains all the official revision test questions licensed from the DVSA, the people who set the tests.


I am very conscious of the damage that cars make to the environment. When the time is right, I plan to teach in an all-electric car. However, in the meantime I am committed to offset all my mileage emissions by investing in Verified Carbon Standard projects. In July 2019, I offset all the exhaust emissions from January 2018 to July 2019 amounting to 4.582 tonnes of CO2. Next July, I will calculate my mileage emissions for the year and do the same.


If you live in or around Warminster, Westbury, Frome or Trowbridge, and are looking for a calm and patient instructor who will get you that all important driving licence as quickly as possible without costing the earth, then please give me a call.

Recent Driving Test Success



Prosper from Westbury

"Mike knows how to get the best out of his student. No matter how slow you are, he has the patience. He includes you in what is going on and is flexible as well, and moreover, you are more likely to pass first time with him than anywhere else."

Ben from Warminster

"Mike is a brilliant instructor with a very calm manner and lots of helpful techniques. Mike helped me to go from no driving experience to passing my test first time in less than two months. Thank you very much!"

Nick from Warminster

"Mike has been a fabulous teacher and mentor during my driving lessons. Cut the story short an instructor had let me down 2 days before my intensive lessons. Luckily Mike came through and taught me some very valuable lessons! I had my test in Chippenham and I didn’t have any previous experience of driving in Chippenham before I started with Mike. Thankfully, I passed first time with 5 minors."

Stephen from Warminster

"After a 6 year break from driving Mike helped me regain my confidence behind the wheel, as well as teaching me a few new things along the way. Can't recommend Mike enough, his calm and collected teaching style helps put you ease and would be great for a beginner or someone just looking for a refresher like me."
