Meet Our instructor

Alex Hughes

I am a fully qualified driving Instructor, having retired from the South Yorkshire Police following 30 years service as a Police Officer. For a significant part of that 30 years service I have held a Class 1 advanced driving permit and undertaken a number of specialist driving courses. I have worked in many parts of the force including over seven years as a Traffic Officer.

As part of the process of becoming a qualified driving instructor I have passed each of the examinations first time, attaining 100 % in the theory exam.

I like to consider myself as friendly, approachable and unflappable when things get a little ragged, able to bring calm to what might seem like a chaotic environment and explain and make sense of complicated motoring issues. I am a family man living locally with my wife and family. The style and delivery of my tuition is nothing less than I would expect for my own family.

My training is designed to meet your individual needs and ability. Driving once mastered is fairly simple, learning can present something of a challenge. Training will be delivered in bite size chunks so you can learn at your own pace. Please expect to work hard. Once you have mastered one chunk we will quickly move onto the next. I will not ask you to do anything I do not think you are fully capable of. The vehicle in which you learn is fully equipped with dual controls ensuring your safety at all times.

Training is tailored to your needs. I take pride in assisting all students to realise their potential and achieve independent motoring.

Edd Hughes

I am a fully qualified driving instructor. I am qualified as a personal trainer after attending college for 3 years attaining qualifications in Sports Coaching, Development and Fitness at a BTEC National level; and Personal Training at an NVQ Level 3. I passed my driving test in May 2009; from that point I have never been without a car. This gives me an ability to provide all of my students with a relatively fresh insight into what it’s like being a new driver on the roads.

I am married and would consider myself to be a cool, calm and collected person. I am friendly and like to consider myself to be very approachable. I like to work my students hard and provide quality tailored tuition to meet the individuals needs. I have experience in working with people with specific training needs such as, ADHD, autism, strokes, ect.

Eleanor Chatterton

I am a fully qualified driving instructor, completing my training in 2021. I qualified as a patisserie chef in 2013 going on to work in the hospitality sector. Once within the hospitality sector I quickly moved into the sphere of management having responsibility for the recruitment, training and mentoring of new staff. Latterly I moved into the pensions and insurance industry, once again moving into the training and mentoring of new recruits. I have enjoyed training and mentoring so much so, I have sought a means to do that full time by moving into the driver training industry.

I am in a stable long-term relationship living locally with my partner. I would describe myself as a calm and collected individual. I am not excitable and will be quite unfazed by mistakes that may be made. I have the capacity to keep all students safe in ever changing road conditions, and assist with understanding and resolution of complicated road situations. Training is tailored to the trainees’ individual needs. I provide a very safe and friendly learning environment, such that all my students can actually enjoy the learning experience. I have many years driving experience and feel readily able to share my knowledge and expertise.
