Driver training must have its highs and lows?
The ‘high’ is knowing a driver has bought in to your ideas, will adopt them and be less likely to crash. But it’s frustrating that organisations still don’t understand the huge benefits and value.
What’s your favourite part of the job?
Exploring and developing new products and services.
What is the worst thing a driver has done in training?
What is the most common mistake made by drivers?
Failing to identify risk. This manifests itself by failures of observation, lack of concentration and anticipation. Drivers are then too close to other road users and travel at inappropriate speeds.
Did you always envisage a career as a driver trainer?
No, road safety became a passion for me in my early 20s.
What’s been your best career move?
Taking a proposal to Brands Hatch for a young, pre-drivers’ training scheme, having it accepted and then copied by other race circuits.
