My name is Ruth and I am a Driving and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) Approved Driving Instructor (ADI) who has been fully CRB checked. I am a member of the Driving Instructors Association (DIA) and also a member of the local Darlington Driving Instructors Federation (DDIF). I live locally with my husband and son. I am a qualified nurse as well as a driving instructor and spent many years working in Intensive Care.
The driving school car I have chosen is a Renault Clio Dynamique. It is fitted with dual controls for your safety and peace of mind and it has air conditioning for your comfort. The Clio is a popular driving school car with excellent all round visibility. It is small enough to manage your reversing manoeuvres easily, yet spacious enough to allow you to be comfortable whilst sitting in a confined area with your instructor.
I will pick you up and drop you off at home, work or college to suit you. I will not use part of your lesson time to travel to your pick up point, therefore if you pay for a 2 hour lesson you will have a full 2 hours of teaching/driving. 90 minute or 2 hourly lessons – These lessons can be taken weekly or more often as required. Learning can therefore be spread over a few weeks or a few months, whichever suits you best. £25.00 per hour or £240.00 for 10 hours (when pre-paid).
I offer Pass Plus training. The Pass Plus training Course can be taken after passing your driving test, you can increase your confidence and abilities whilst lowering your insurance premiums by up to 30%. There are 6 modules to be achieved over a 6 hour period, including:- motorway driving, driving in adverse weather conditions and night time driving. There is no test at the end of this. Total cost: £175.00
At the age of 30 years I didn’t have much confidence when I came to driving. Ruth was recommended to me and my confidence grew with each lesson I had. I found her calming personality very rewarding
