Pete Brason started Academy Driving School when he qualified as an approved driving instructor back in 1988.
His previous training as a store manager (he was voted manager of the year 1987 out of 588 stores whilst training to be a driving instructor) has helped him build a successful business which continues to grow even in this time of world wide recession.
During this time Pete has helped many people to qualify as driving instructors (some of which now work for him) and has achieved the recognition of ‘grade 6’ status over the last 12 years, which is the highest grade an instructor can receive when check tested!
Identifying a gap in the driving market he came up with his residential intensive driving courses. They proved an instant winner having included clear pricing for the courses and including both the practical test plus accommodation where required.
This has given people all over the country (now all over the world) a chance to learn on roads where the other road users seem to have more time for you. This make the task of learning to drive far less stressful and therefore far more enjoyable.
Only giving work to some of the best instructors in the area has made sure we are recommended over and over again. In fact we are one of the most recommended intensive driving course company’s in the UK.
