My Story

Having taught scuba diving at all levels from beginner to advanced technical diving for over twenty years in several countries I returned to the UK .

I wanted to start a diving company but got the spelling wrong so I started a driving company. Seriously, needing to work once back in the UK, I wondered how I could best utilise my teaching experience and love of helping people achieve, after some research, I decided that giving driving instruction would be a good direction to take. “Learn To Drive Blackpool” started its journey.
