Hi! Thanks for visiting my page!
I'm Kate, I am licensed by the DVSA to give driving tuition and I am passionate about road safety.
Before becoming a driving instructor I was in the Armed Forces for seven years. I spent just over two years performing ceremonial duties in London on horseback with the King's Troop RHA and was fortunate enough to meet Her Majesty the Queen twice during this time. My remaining time served was spent mainly working in communications and assisting in the running of training courses. One of my highlights was being involved in the security of the London 2012 Olympics at Hyde Park.
I live in Arncott with my long term partner and our two retired greyhounds, whose days literally consist of snoozes and five minutes of zoomies in the evenings! (That's their mad playtime moments! Of course I'm talking about the dogs!)
I have recently taken up Tae Kwon Do and football in the Bicester area. I am a keen sportswoman and enjoy both participating and spectating. I played hockey and rugby for over twenty years and I performed with, and coached, players within a wide age range.
I have driven many different types of vehicles in my lifetime and I finally got around to passing my Cat A Motorcycle license last year. One week later, I rode alongside my 'biker buddy' up to Scotland and toured around for five days, totalling nearly 1500 miles in the process (and got very wet!)
I became a driving instructor because I wanted a job with real satisfaction and there is nothing better than seeing someone pass their test first time. I was also always being told by friends and work colleagues that I was a calm and relaxed type of person and that I would make a great Driving Instructor.
I was fortunate to be trained by LDC in the latest adult coaching and training techniques so you can be assured the training I give will be of the highest standard.
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. Lessons are always conducted in a calm, friendly and relaxed manner as I firmly believe in making pupils feel at ease during lessons. I also believe if lessons are fun and enjoyable, the pupil will learn faster and retain information easier.
Well, I hope this gives you a brief insight about me, so please feel free to give me a call or "Contact me" and arrange a free, no obligation, home visit.
