I'm James Houghton, I've been a fully qualified DVSA driving instructor for over 13 years and as a Grade A (highest Government grade) driving instructor in the Droylsden Area, my structured training courses help people of all ages & experience to become the best (& safest) drivers they can be. Choosing the best instructor will help you get to driving test standard as quickly as possible.
Useful for those who've had lessons before & want an assessment of how close they are to being test ready.
As we work through topics, the Student & I agree a grade for thier performance in that area. This ensures time on future sessions isnt waisted working on areas they've already mastered. The progress packs also helps ;
I support each student as much as they need, helping with both the multiple choice question & Hazard perception video clips. Some students only require assistance with odd questions & others need much more intensive assistance. I use extensive training aids & even hazard perception video apps for practice.
Training sessions can be 1, 1.5 or 2hrs long, whichever suits the trainees needs.
Students can be picked up or dropped off at college, home or other locations.
Once students have mastered the DVSA driving sylalabus we start undergoing mock practical driving tests to fully prepare students for their tests.
Dual controlled peugeot 208 1.6HDI Blue with adjustable seat height & steering to make the car confortable to drive for people of all heights.
During driver training in car video can be useful to help students quickly see for themselves problems they have missed when driving. It enables students to quickly understand what went wrong without having to endlessly repeat the junction/situation hoping to recreate it.
James Driver Training Gift certificates are available for any number of hours required.
As a fully qualified Driving Instructor I am CRB checked by the Government DVSA department & in car training is video recorded for safeguarding & security purposes.
