Hi my name is Jim Cole and I'm the owner of....... PROGRESS DRIVER AND INSTRUCTOR TRAINING
We are a Thanet based driving school covering Margate, Ramsgate, Broadstairs and the surrounding areas. I've been instructing for over 30 years, starting in London before moving to Thanet 15 years ago.
As well as teaching people to drive I also train people to become driving instructors. In addition, I hold a Fleet Licence, allowing me to perform risk assessments for companies who employ drivers and want to ensure that their driving abilities are to standard.
I'm a great believer in keeping my teaching practice current , which is why I attend as many courses as possible, including B-Tec level 4 in Driver Development, Train the Trainer and Ordit, to name just a few. I am also a licenced examiner and carry out Taxi Tests.
My teaching style differs from that of many other instructors. My lessons are pupil led , a coaching approach, putting you, the pupil, in control of your learning. This coaching method gives you the opportunity to steer the learning process, to reflect on your learning and to identify your strengths and areas where you consider additional work is required. This approach firmly puts you in the driving seat.
Experience has taught me that pupils learning is inhibited of they are stressed or anxious. My lessons are conducted in an easy going, fun, stress-free environment, as it is very clear that this the best and most effective way to learn to drive.
