DRIVE Driving School ADI

Congratulations to Kevin Pillar who passed Part 3 test this week.
Why did you want to become an instructor?
I wasn’t happy with my employer and really wanted to do something for me. Driving Tuition is something that I looked into some years ago but for one reason or another but last year I decided to take the plunge and start my training.

What did you do at the time?
I worked for the local authority in a customer service role.
What made you choose us?
I researched various companies and SmartDriving appealed to me because it looked very professional. The money back guarantee was also a very attractive offer for me. It made me feel that I would not fail.
What did you enjoy about your training?
I enjoyed the whole course really. The way each step is set out and the way it gets you to think about even the most obvious answers is really good.
I enjoyed re-teaching myself to drive for part 2 and loved meeting my trainer Salma and training buddy Sue for the part 3 in car training.

What didn’t you enjoy?
Staying up to study late at night (obviously taken frequent breaks )

What advice would you give another person looking to be an instructor?
Be prepared to work hard and make sure you are very self-disciplined. Passing each individual test is so rewarding so by following the course it will help you to fulfil your goal.
How has this changed your life so far?
Just seeing my roof box on the car makes me so proud. All of my friends and family have really got behind my new business. It is just an amazing feeling when a customer or potential customer contacts me regarding lessons

Well done Kevin – good luck in your new career!
