My recollection is that I was eleven years young when my best friend and I sat in my mom’s Hillman Imp planning how, when we were old enough to drive, we would fit a roll cage and weld the doors closed, so that we would have to enter the car through its windows, Dukes of Hazzard style!

As soon as I could, I started driving lessons. Months later, I sealed my freedom with a driving licence. That was 1987, so whilst puberty had happened the Web had not. Consequently, I was frustrated by the lack of resources that were available to me to develop my driving skills, including money (I had only just entered the real world of work). How to Drive is borne of those frustrations. You, lucky reader, need not starve your craving.

Since 1997, I have worked internationally as a pro’ driver and specialist driving trainer. I’ve worked as a police advanced driving instructor and a driving consultant to car manufacturers such as Porsche and Jaguar Land Rover. Nowadays, I’m transitioning to sharing what I’ve learned with a wider, online audience.

I hope you’ll find How to Drive’s range of accessible resources helpful to you in the realisation of your personal driving ambitions.

Best wishes

Founder, How to Drive
