Being a Driving Instructor with Anderby is a great job

“I couldn’t have asked for a better trainer than Graham; he is very knowledgeable, patient, and a great communicator. Above all though, his passion for Driving Instructing and teaching at all levels shines through – it’s clear that he’s still ‘got the bug’! Graham’s pay-as-you-go training is great value, and is flexible to suit the would-be Instructor, taking into account their learning style and relevant experiences; my entire Part 3 training cost me under £750, and thanks to Graham, I was able to prepare for my Part 3 test within a month, passing with a 5/5. Thank you Graham!”Nick from Grimsby (May 2016)
