Years Served: 15 Years
As an ex-member of the Armed Forces with 23 years’ service – 15 years within the training environment and eight years experience as a training consultant with a number of civilian training providers, both in the UK and overseas – I would consider myself as being very experienced when it comes to the training cycle, both as a student and instructor.
‘My journey to become a driving instructor with RED Driving School started in January 2014. I was some what cautious when deciding which driving school could deliver a training package and support system that would allow me to achieve my goal with minimum fuss, and was willing to support me throughout my journey. RED appealed to me for a number of reasons: it was the largest driving school with a growing reputation, and of course the offer was financially beneficial compared to that of other schools.
‘Throughout my eight-month journey from application to the CRB to passing my Part 3 test, I received excellent support and guidance from all concerned. I would have to give a special mention to RED instructor services for their enthusiasm and professionalism, and a special thanks to Dave Purves, my Part 2 coach, and to Paul Heary for delivering a Part 3 package that could only be described as hard work, but a learning process that was delivered with passion, determination, but most of all in a relaxed and fun manner.
‘I would recommend RED to anyone considering driving instruction as a new career – their dedication and training staff allowed me to complete the journey, passing all tests at my first attempt, and totally prepared me for the challenges that undoubtedly I will face in my new career.’
