Suzanne’s Testimonial

Congratulations to Suzanne Whetherby DVSA ADI.
She qualified in March 17 with us and set up her own driving school ‘S – Drive’.
Here is her testimonial.

Why did you want to become an instructor?
I chose to become a Driving Instructor as I wanted a new challenge and flexibility.
What did you do at the time?

I was a self employed Sales Agent within the giftware industry, I covered a large area and averaged over 30K miles a year. I have been self employed for over 9 years and looked for a career that I could continue to be self employed.
What made you choose us?
Whilst making this decision I did a little homework on the different possibilities and courses. I chose Smart Driving as the course seemed straightforward, easy to follow and I could cover in my own time.
What did you enjoy about your training?
The course was methodical, informative and concise. It took a little time at first to get used to studying again after not doing any study for a long time.
But I soon began to enjoy it.
Once I passed part 1, I began training for part 2 having to rethink my driving !!!! My Trainer Salma Ra made the experience fun and passed on a wealth of Knowledge.
I began part 3 Training with Salma and I found this part difficult mainly because of my own confidence. I failed my part 3 first time and had some extra sessions with Salma and happily passed second time.


What advice would you give another person looking to be an instructor?
The advice I would give someone looking to become an instructor is to take your time, don’t rush and get as much practice as you can especially for part 3 and enjoy!!


How has this changed your life so far?
I am know organising my new career, and looking forward to it.

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.
