ADI Business Support
Are you an ADI who would like to give your business a boost? Or perhaps you are with a franchise and would like some support to become independent? Either way our ADI business support options will benefit you.  Contact me to find out how I can help you and your business with one of these plans:

Basic Plan
Starts with our free Getting Started Business Info which is full of information and questions that we wish we had when we were first getting started. This acts as a prompt to get you thinking about your business identity and which areas you would most like help with.
I will then offer you 3 hours of business coaching to be used over a three month period. The three hours can be split any way you prefer over the phone, video calling or face to face in Leighton Buzzard. You choose the focus for the time and I will work with you to build your business and take it in the direction you would like it to grow. Cost: £120

Premium Plan
You will receive everything the basic plan offers over one year giving you 12 hours of business coaching. In addition, you will also receive 6 hours of CPD training to be used how you feel it will benefit your business the most. Choose options from the CPD training list above. Cost: £650
As a premium customer you will also benefit from:

Website listing: I will advertise your business on the Network page of my website and refer any enquires from within your area direct to you.

Networking: I will put you in touch with other ADI’s who have trained with me so that you can connect with each other as well as with me, building a network of support from likeminded ADIs.

Marketing: I will give you a bundle of marketing hint and tips to make sure that your Facebook page and Google listing are optimised so that they are working for you as a 'shop window' for your perfect pupil.  This will also include targetting your Facebook advertising and how to make it really easy for your pupils to leave you reviews on Google.

Confident Drivers: 12 months access for you and your pupils to the Confident Drivers resources for nervous and anxious pupils including relaxation, breathing techniques, positive self-talk, imagery, self-hypnosis tracks, mindfulness and tapping.  .Learn more about how these resources can help nervous learner drivers at


Caledonian LDT Franchise
I am a regional partner for the Caledonian LDT Franchise offering training and mentoring support to ADI’s who join this growing franchise in Herts, Beds, Bucks & Northants for those who prefer to be part of a team and have the support of a successful franchise.

The franchise costs just £80 a week (initial joining fee of £350) and comes with a host of benefits including free standards check training and access for you and your pupils to the Confident Drivers website.  There are no pupil referral fees, and our instructors charge between £27-£30 for lessons.  Why not check out the current team on my Network page to decide for yourself if you would like to join this expanding franchise and share in their success.

If you’re currently with a less helpful franchise (when was your last meeting with an area manager or owner?), paying a higher fee but generating a fair amount of your own work, Caledonian may be the perfect stepping stone before you decide to take the plunge and go independent. We can help you do that, and in the meantime, you’ll vastly reduce your outgoings.

About my Driving Experience
My working life has always revolved around driving. I started my driving career working for Royal Mail, gaining my LGV class 1 license at the age of 21 and have been passionate about driving ever since! After many years and experiences on the road I wanted a career change to promote safer driving and once I started training as an instructor I knew I'd made the right decision and never looked back.

I was immediately interested in Continuing Professional Development as I've always wanted to be the best trainer I can be. I started with my Fleet badge and progressed onto BTEC Level 4 with Tri-Coaching. This made an almost immediate difference to both my pupils and the growth of my business and was also reflected in my next Check Test where I was graded level 6 on all elements.

Becoming an aCCeLerate trainer was the obvious next step as I wholeheartedly believe that a coaching approach is the way forward in promoting safer drivers on the road. Continuing my own CPD I am now trained to teach others to become a driving instructor using the new Tri-Coaching programme, became ORDIT registered in 2017 and also offer independent instructor training.

In 2014 I attended the DriverMetrics® accreditation course, delivered personally by Dr Lisa Dorn at Cranfield University. I am now a DriverMetrics® accredited coach delivering Insight into Action™ Driver Coaching sessions.

In 2017 I became a regional partner for Caledonian Learner Driver Training and enjoy helping other ADI’s to grow their own successful business.
