ADI / Instructor Trainer
Thanks for visiting my profile, I'm Scott.
A qualified and DVSA Approved Driving Instructor (ADI) who works in partnership with Podium Driving School as both a Manual & Automatic Driving Instructor as well as providing Driving Instructor Training. I provide Automatic Driving Lessons in Dartford, Sidcup & Swanley. I also cover surrounding areas within a 6 mile radius.
Here are a few questions I often get asked.
How long have you been a driving instructor?
I've been teaching category B (cars) for 5 years now. I also have experience in racing & karting too - Engines and all things wheels have always been a source of enjoyment for me.
What are your strengths when it comes to teaching?
Well I firmly believe I coach and mentor rather than teach. I find ways that work for the person, never a one size fits all approach. So with that I find my biggest strength is looking outside of the box and trying a different approach. This could be a diagram, demonstration, video etc. Whatever works is what I say!
What do you enjoy most about being a driving instructor?
The people, absolutely! Either my learner drivers or the team I work with. I've always been a people person.
When it comes to instruction, it's working with people who truly want to be there, and learn top notch skills for life, not just for the test - This is where my skills, knowledge and expertise are really put to the test. I get a massive sense of pride & enjoyment from seeing people develop.
What do you enjoy outside of driving instructing?
Aside from my family life I love motorcycles. I currently ride a Kawazaki Versys 650. I try to get out on it whenever I can. As i mentioned previously, I also have a love for fast cars and bikes, so I love watching Formula 1 on the weekend.
What is your top tip for learner drivers?
Practice, Practice, Practice. And don't stop. Learn your art, your road craft. Learn from every opportunity - I never stop learning.
Get the logbook and study hard at home! If you put just as much effort into your home study as you do in the car, I guarantee you'll not only pass faster, you'll be far better skilled than your peers.
