I’m Colin Lott and I’m the owner of Drive School of Motoring.
I became a driving instructor in 1997 and started working for a driving school as a franchisee, and in 1998 I decided it was time to go independent and start my own driving school.
I managed, before too long, to build a good rapport with my students and quickly started to see some very good results in the way of test passes, which led to a lot of work through recommendations. In fact, it got to the point where I was having to turn work away, because I was just too busy. To try and alleviate this problem, I decided to employ the services of another driving instructor, which worked quite well at first, and I then employed a second instructor, as we started to get even busier.
Unfortunately however, I began to notice that the quality of the instruction given by these instructors was less than perfect, so at this point I decided the best way for me to obtain the best driving instructors possible would be to train them myself, to the highest quality, right from the start. So, in 2006 I launched our driving instructor training academy, which allowed me to ensure that our learner students got the best driving instruction on offer, and still does to this day.
I have always looked to give the best quality, and thus best value to all our students, which is why I not only train all of our driving instructors to be the best they can be, but also insist they take regular, ongoing re-training as part of their employment conditions, to ensure they stay at the top of their game. We also give all our students the opportunity to give feedback about their instructor’s performance, to allow us to manage any problems that may occur and to offer our instructors any extra training that may be necessary.
Thank you for taking a look around our site and I hope you can see that our focus is always on giving the best possible service, from the point you contact us, to the point you get that all important test pass.
I look forward to meeting you soon.
Regards, Colin Lott.
