welcome to my website. If you’re looking for a friendly, professional driving instructor then get in touch. 

I try to make lessons relaxed and fun. If you’re a nervous driver or lacking in confidence then try not to worry. I’ll only teach you at a pace that suits you.

I am based in Cowling, North Yorkshire. I cover areas around Skipton, Bradley, Lothersdale, Kildwick, Farnhill, Crosshills, Glusburn, Sutton-in-Craven and Silsden  Please ring me to enquire about other locations. I may be able to help.
