    Tony was a driving instructor in the Army for over 10years. This involved training soldiers to drive anything from a Land Rover to a large truck, coaches and includes off-road driving. Tony has been an instructor for about 17 years in total. The key to becoming a good driver is practice, practice and lots more practice. Tony tells me “All too often people underestimate how much time they need to put in, for every 1hr lesson with an instructor they should aim for 3-5hrs practice in between. This will help them to also save some money.” Tony enjoys seeing new licence holders with no driving experience progress through to eventually achieving a provisional license and finds this very rewarding. When he is not in the car instructing, he spends his time walking and loves cooking.
