Whether you're a complete novice looking to start your driving, a full license holder looking for refresher lessons or anything in between, stick around and I'll explain how I can help you out.
Hi, I'm Ashley Bayes. I'm an Approved Driving Instructor (ADI) and a DVSA Qualified Fleet Driver Trainer. I'm a very calm and patient instructor with a variety of coaching techniques to cater for all personalities. I will generally teach in a casual, fun and professional manner.
All of my student will have free access to Theory Test Pro, the market leading Theory training app. You will also have access to the brilliant MyDriveTime student app, which lets you monitor scheduled lessons, lesson progress, keep track of payments, unlimited training resources and much more.
My journey to this point is probably not what you'd expect to hear from a Driving Instructor. I passed my test at 24 and never drove again until I was 26. When I got back behind the wheel I had forgotten how to drive and suffered some bad experiences on the road. I developed a bad case of anxiety and lack of confidence. I gave up. I avoided driving for as long as I could because quite frankly it terrified me. I knew this couldn't go on. I decided to fight this head on, regaining my understanding and control of the clutch pedal and got my confidence back. I never stopped there. I wanted to see how far I could go, not just with my driving skills, but with this new found mental strength I had. I thought I could really help others with similar problems and help get their licence or indeed get back on the road, like me.
I can really relate to my students state of mind and I know that mental strength is just as important as the driving skills on the roads today.
I teach in a 2019 VW Polo, manual car. It's a great car to learn how to drive in, it's easy to manoeuvre, very agile and has all the latest features you can expect in a modern vehicle. The ideal vehicle to get you Test Ready.
