Progress at each lesson

I aim to ensure that the driver will make progress at each lesson. Every lesson will include a de-brief and an objective mutually agreed for the next lesson. Regular progress updates will be provided, and the participation of the driver is actively sought and encouraged. Full support during theory studies and for private practice will be given.

Safe driving for life
I am committed to life-long learning to ensure Safe Driving for Life, and will encourage all drivers to pursue options such as PASS PLUS and/or RoSPA Advanced Driver Training once they pass their driving test. For further information please refer to and

Charity support
Cruise Control Driver Coaching actively supports the road safety charity “Brake”, details of which can be found on As a Brake road safety educator I offer my time free of charge to schools and clubs to run the workshop "2young2die". I also provide free advanced driver tuition to all referred RoSPA associates aiming to pass the RoSPA advanced driving test, and am the Treasurer of the local RoSPA group. I also provide monthly contributions to our Air Ambulance team, who contribute enormously to the survival chances of any road crash victims.
