Hi I’m Phil and welcome to my website. I hope it provides the information you need. If not please do not hesitate to ring me direct on 07790 593654.
I am a family man. My wife, Val, and I have 5 children. They are all adults now and 4 have left home setting up their own homes with their partners. As a result Sunday afternoon tends to be hectic in our house as we are descended upon for dinner!
Prior to becoming a Driving Instructor I spent 30 years in the Police Service. I had a varied career. 8 years of this was spent working on our Roads Policing department and a further 3 where my role involved Road safety. I have also worked closely in Partnership with Schools both in my professional capacity and as a School Governor for 11 years.
I have trained with LDC and am completely up to date with their system, which is based on client centred learning. In reality this means that as an Instructor I will use a mix of teaching and coaching skills to get the best results.
I have lived most of my life in and around the Gloucester and Cheltenham area. I currently live in Cheltenham. Having been schooled in Cheltenham I know the area well.
My hobbies include Rugby and Cricket, sadly no longer playing. I have been an avid Gloucester fan for as long as I can remember. I also enjoy gardening and reading.
I am by nature a very calm person. With my background having given me an expertise in Road Safety matters I realised that as a Driving Instructor I could give something to my Children’s generation in helping them become the safe drivers of tomorrow.
