About Me

What do I offer you that is different?

I specialise in Coaching for Driver Education, having passed the BTEC Level 4 in Coaching for Driver Development in 2011.

Coaching is a holistic approach to you and your learning. We will use your extensive existing skills as a pedestrian, cyclist, passenger and adult! You have a lifetime of  experience which should not be discounted, but embraced! You have a lot of experience as a road user already, and we, as a team, will use THAT wealth of knowledge, adding in some car control and develop your confidence and skills at ‘reading the road ahead’! 

 I have valuable skills – yes! But so DO YOU! You are already capable of crossing roads as a pedestrian – so that there is no need to doubt yourself as a driver! Even as passengers, you are probably very aware of signs and priorities; and even know what makes a ‘good driver’ in your opinion!

As a team we will discover your learning and memory forming preferences. We might use:

  • mind mapping
  • bullet points
  • diagrams
  • my in-car camera system to ‘take another look’!
  • or none of those above
  • and just act on what is there

Nervous learners, or anyone with extra needs for example people with Dyslexia are very welcome! 

I am confident that I can help you learn the best way – YOUR way! You are welcome to enjoy a taster session with no financial commitment


Since passing the BTEC 4 I have completed further Training to become an aCCeLerate Trainer for the BTEC Level 3, a National Driver Awareness Practical Instructor/Trainer, Fleet Trainer and more.

  1. Hi Fiona I would like to purchase your deluxe car training set together with the pedestrian and bike but I don’t use PayPal could I pay over the phone

    • Thank you so much for the enquiry Alison. I can arrange for a bacs payment – and you can pay with any regular Debit or Credit Card via paypal (though I understand that you prefer not to use Paypal!) I have sent you a message and I hope we can take it from there. Many thanks. Fiona

  2. Hi Fiona, I’ve just received my deluxe set and am really pleased with them. I was really hoping that there would be a diagram of a 3 lanes roundabout included in the set as it’s the one I’ve struggled most to find anywhere. Would you consider adding this to the set in the near future?

    • I am happy to add a 3 lane roundabout, of course Ryan. Thank you for the feedback. I will add it to the list and do that as soon as I can 🙂 I added the box junction (and other diagrams) for exactly the same reasons, so thank you for posting here.

      I am so pleased that you are pleased with your Deluxe Set!! Thank you so much for letting me know! 🙂
