Hi I'm Steve, I am a fully qualified Government Approved Driving Instructor (ADI) and I am passionate about road safety. I teach a wide range of students, from beginners starting out, foreign licence holders wanting to pass the UK driving test and I also train driving instructors as a registered ORDIT trainer. I can provide intensive and semi-intensive driving courses and driving lessons in Thame, Oxford, Aylesbury, Long Crendon, Haddenham, Wheatley, Chinnor and Princes Risborough plus the surrounding areas.
I have been involved with road safety since 1982 when I was a volunteer instructor with the RAC/ACU motorcycle training scheme. Driving is a key skill that allows us to make the most of our flexible and busy lives, so a good foundation helps keep us and other road users safe. Helping people acquire these skills is what makes my job so enjoyable.
I am local, having lived in Thame for more than 25 years I'm married and I have two sons who both went to Lord Williams’s School. As with all ADI's I hold a current DBS Certificate.

Driving courses and driving lesson packages
I can provide a range of courses with a driving test booked at the end to suit your needs. Each one of the driving courses shown above include
- access to my LDC online students learning hub (see below),
- the LDC driving skills DVD/workbook and
- the provision of a driving test within the price.
Together we book the driving test and then plan a schedule of driving lessons leading up to that date.
Alternatively, I can also offer you "pay as you go" driving lessons. The choice is yours.
About the LD System I use
Pass quicker for less with the incredible LD System. Watch and study how to perform each driving task before your next driving lesson and/or watch it afterwards to remind you of what you have learnt. Save time and money on unnecessary explanations in car. Make more rapid progress and see your confidence grow as you mark off each of the targets in your LDC workbook and/or online. Nothing is left to chance and you know exactly where you are in the process at anytime. You can see for yourself when you are ready for the test, what you have covered and what remains outstanding.
Make your first driving test your last and
equip yourself for a lifetime of safe driving
My LDC online students learning hub
The LD system is also available online through multiple devices via my LDC online students learning hub - shown below:
All my students have access to my LDC online students learning hub available through this website. This allows you to prepare for your Theory and Hazard Perception test as well as giving you access to the online version of the LD system. In this way I can monitor your progress and help you through your Theory Test preparation as well as your preparation for the driving test.
