Once a fortnight we interview one of the Momentum driving team to learn more about them and get some top driving tips.
Today we have Michael, one of our instructors from the Northampton…
Why did you want to become a driving instructor?
How long have you been an instructor?
What do you like most about teaching people to drive?
I love seeing people develop their skills and ultimately become safe and responsible drivers. I am teaching a life skill and I gain a lot of pleasure helping pupils gain their license and challenge their own beliefs on attitude and behaviour when behind the wheel !
What car do you use for teaching?
What are the most common mistakes you see pupils make?
What changes would you like to see made to the driving test, if any?
What are your top 5 tips for learner drivers?
Always check your mirrors and know what is around your vehicle
Do everything you possibly can to stay safe on the roads
Brake before bends in the road, not on them
Be courteous – Accept other drivers mistakes and not get upset about
them, even the best drivers can have a bad day and do something wrong
Anything else you’d like to add?
