About


Hi, I’m Billy and I’m proud to offer quality driving lessons in Northumberland, from my base in Morpeth.

As part of the Qualify: Driver Education & Training group, I deliver training to high standards. If you’ve taken lessons already, you’re probably aware that many driving instructors will train their pupils to pass the test by covering established routes. Well, that approach may get you through your driving test, but it won’t make you a competent driver! I will teach you to be able to drive anywhere safely and with confidence, so that you’re not nervous to drive somewhere you haven’t been before. Driving is a skill for life, and that’s how I teach it.

About Me

I have held a full driving licence since 1983 and a full motorbike licence since 2004. Over the years I have really enjoyed driving and being an ADI in the Morpeth area is a job I really enjoy doing. It gives me great satisfaction to see my Northumberland pupils passing their driving test and becoming  safe and competent drivers.

I met Ian Lavell of Qualify: Driver Education & Training,  in July 2013. Ian is a grade 6 instructor, and he coached me through my journey to being a fully qualified driving instructor with a Grade “A” rating, which recognises my high standard of driving instruction.

I offer a friendly, patient and professional teaching environment, one to one driving tuition. My driving lessons are flexible and I can pick you up from your home, work, college, school, etc.

My client centred approach to learning, means that your lessons are based on your own unique learning style ( visual-audio-kinaesthetic ). The methods and materials that I use will be customised to the way you learn so that you get the most from your driving lesson.

I offer you:

  • Competitively priced lessons for all abilities
  • Discounts on standard rates for advanced payments
  • Free theory training
  • Free access to online theory training
  • Pass Plus training (highly recommended)

My aim is to teach you to be a safe, confident, assertive and conscientious driver, with the skills to enable you to confidently drive anywhere, not just on test routes!
