A little bit of information about me

Paula's Driving SchoolAbout me
Hi I'm Paula, welcome to my website. Here you will find a little bit of information about me.

I am a fully qualified Government Approved Driving Instructor (ADI) and I am passionate about road safety and helping people develop safe driving skills for life.

I live in Queensbury with my husband David and two children Ashton and Amara. Having a family of my own I understand the importance to every parent or partner of wanting to ensure their loved ones remain safe and protected. This is why choosing the right driving school and entrusting an instructor with the safety of your loved one can be a daunting task.

Having children of my own I know that if they were learning to drive (not just yet though as they are only 8 and 9!) as a parent I would be looking for an instructor who is friendly, punctual, trustworthy and well qualified so I can assure you that these are the qualities that I have when delivering lessons.

I have completed my driving instructor training through the LDC driving school. Like you, I researched to find the best in the industry so that the education and development I received would be of the highest quality. My LDC training has ensured I am qualified to deliver the latest adult coaching and training techniques so you can be assured the training I give will be of the ultimate standard.

Before becoming a driving instructor I worked as a teacher for 16 years, facilitating the education and development of students and colleagues for a number of subjects and skills. Working mainly with students aged 16-19 I understand how to build professional and productive relationships that have a sense of partnership to work towards an individual’s goals.

I feel that becoming a driving instructor is a logical progression for me as an ‘ex-PE teacher’ so if I can teach people to somersault on a trampoline, I feel more than comfortable aiding them with roundabouts and corners.

I really care that my students leave my lessons feeling they have enjoyed their driving, having a positive, fun and rewarding time. I chose to work with LDC because everybody is different and the LD System allows for flexibility in lessons so that you learn to drive safely at a rate that suits you. I aim to make every lesson enjoyable and as productive as possible. The LD System just helps me to do this more effectively.

I firmly believe in making pupils feel at ease during lessons and I will work with you to achieve success in your driving test. I will enable the drivers who learn with me to acquire the skills and knowledge for life, to remain safe when they are ready to drive solo.

If you are looking for a fresh and modern approach to your driving experience and need a calm, relaxed instructor who will put your needs at the heart of the learning experience then I’m the instructor for you.

My interests are varied. Other than driving of course, I take pleasure in spending time with my family and being involved with my children’s various clubs and activities. I myself enjoy sports and fitness which helps after sitting in the car! I also thrive when working on a project and love interior design and creative activities such as reconditioning furniture or creating photobooks.
