Geoff Watkins

I have been a driving instructor since 2006, and have taught as part of a large national driving school, and since 2009 as an independent driving instructor.  Being independent means you will never have a change of instructor, ensuring lessons are kept consistent.  I am also able to offer the training and services best for you, not what is best for a larger driving school.

To keep up with changing technology and trends, I started training in automatic vehicles in 2014 alongside manual lessons. Now I focus only on automatic training

Having been a member the Young Driver team at Bluewater shopping centre, I’ve had experience teaching people as young as 11 years old to drive, and as a Fleet Trainer and Energy Saving Trust Endorsed Ecodrive trainer, I have plenty of experience with drivers of all ages and abilities.

I am very patient, calm, professional, and friendly.  I treat each pupil as an individual, who learns at their own speed, with their own specific needs.  All courses are tailor-made to suit the individual, as no two people learn the same way.

My qualifications include;
DVSA Approved Driving Instructor (ADI) Grade A
DVSA Registered Fleet Driver Trainer

NVQ L3 Driver Trainer/coach

Cardington Special Test for ADIs Grade A

Energy Saving Trust Approved Ecodrive Trainer
Energy Saving Trust Endorsed Smarter Driving Trainer
