Paul Walters - head shot

I have been a fully qualified driving instructor for 24 years. I have a wide range of experience teaching learner drivers of all ages and levels. I strongly believe in teaching clients the core principles that they require at the correct level for their individual needs and I adapt my teaching for each client in order to achieve this. I have also found it very rewarding tutoring clients on refresher courses and post-test drivers with the Pass Plus course. I have a calm and collected attitude to driver training and pride myself on being able to communicate this in a reassuring and empowering manner, with nervous pupils being my speciality. I find positive encouragement goes hand in hand with safety at all levels of tuition therefore ensuring progress. I have excellent communication skills and I am clear and concise to ensure clarity for clients. I am diplomatic and patient and above all professional.
