Driving Lessons for Learners and Full Licence Holders

As a driver trainer I do not want people to become “mini-me’s”. Each client is unique, and they will, eventually, adopt their own style of driving with which they will feel comfortable.

In order to do this, I will provide a safe learning environment, in which you will be encouraged to take responsibility for your own learning.

The course will be suited to your own learning style, to your own needs, and built on what you already know.

Following your test pass, there is further training that you can undertake eg. Pass Plus or just tailored sessions to suit your needs.

For the full licence drivers, I can prepare you for one of the many Advanced Driving tests, such as those accredited by RoSPA and Institute of Advance Motorists.

If, as a driver, you feel you would like to be refreshed in the hustle and bustle of modern-day driving, or if your confidence has taken a dip, then I can help you with strategies that enable you to become more confident and safer, in order to deal with the challenges that arise.

Driver training, whether you are a newcomer to driving or an experienced driver, then, being in the car should be fun!

Instructor Training and CPD

I was very lucky with my own trainer back in 2004 when I was training to become a driving instructor. He was a forward-thinking professional who sowed the seed of ‘client centred learning’ in me, even though at the time it was not the way things were done. But time has moved on, and things have changed. There is, now, an emphasis on ‘Client Centred Learning’ and coaching.

Having been trained in this way myself, and having attended a number of advanced courses, I, am in an excellent position to help you if you who wish to become a driving instructor, and to help you develop your skills in a way that will give your pupils the necessary support to develop into safe, thinking and considerate drivers, with a variety of routes toward qualification.

I am also able to help current ADIs and PDIs with their understanding of coaching techniques, and also provide help with preparation for the Standards Check and Part3 tests.

Please contact me for further information.

Fleet Training

If you have a business that employs more than five people, by law you must provide driver assessments to any staff who drive as part of their work duties.

As a DVSA Fleet Registered trainer, I am able to offer my services to individuals or companies, small or large, to assess their drivers’ competency and safety. In addition, if necessary, I can provide training to improve road safety and economy, thereby reducing costs to the companies.

I can deliver (on behalf of the Energy Savings Trust) training in eco-friendly driving techniques, as well as training on fully electric vehicles.

Currently, I deliver training and driving assessments to a number of national companies in all classes of vehicle. I am also registered with several training companies and deliver training and assessments on their behalf.

The benefits of this type of training can be a reduction in loss of down time and a lowering of repair costs to vehicles. There can also be a reduction in running costs due to improved fuel consumption.

Please contact me for further information.

About Phil

Advanced Driving Instructor Phil Ruberry

When I was learning to drive at the tail end of the 1960s I was very fortunate to be living in West Cornwall, where there was little traffic, two sets of traffic lights and, as far as I can remember, no roundabouts!

Once I passed my driving test and left education, every job I had involved driving many miles for one reason or another; over 20 years of my working life were spent long distance HGV driving throughout the UK, followed by a spell of Private Hire Driving in my home town of Penzance.

Following a move to Surrey in 2004 I needed a change of career, and I qualified as an Approved Driving Instructor (ADI).

Initially I worked as a self-employed AA Driving Instructor, and then after about three years I spread my wings.

Soon after that I joined the DVSA Fleet Register, and I am also on the DVSA Official Register of Driving Instructor Trainers (ORDIT).

In my early years as a driving instructor, I taught pupils to drive in an almost ‘one-way-fits-all’ way, but I always felt there was more to it, and I was always looking for ways to improve myself as a driver trainer.

The big turning point for me as a trainer was when I completed the BTEC Level 4 Professional Award in Coaching for Driver Development, where I really discovered how every client is different and very individual.

To that end, I now tailor all my training to suit the individual person, continuously involving them in the training process. I believe that driving training lessons should be fun and carried out in a relaxed and safe environment, and always at a pace that suits the individual client.
