John Farlam

John became a Driving Instructor over 35 years ago having ‘tried’ a number of potential careers. He had no real desire to become a Driving Instructor but quickly fell in love with the job and the industry.
With little ‘formal education’, John built and ran numerous multi car Driving Schools across the UK.
John became Training Director of Learner Driver Centres (LDC) and helped numerous Driving Instructor Training Companies develop their Driving Instructor Training courses as well as many individuals to realise their dreams and become a driving instructor.
John has since gone on to be seen as one of the Industry’s leading experts.




If you are thinking of becoming a driving instructor then I can't rate SmartDriving highly enough.

The training system is excellent the virtual classrooms are enjoyable and very informative and Andrew and the team are always available to answer any queries, not matter how trivial.

Top Team who assisted me greatly in obtaining my ADI Licence.
