One Year On

One Year On

I recently caught up with one of the local driving schools in Andover who's business is called Tara's Driving School. It's been one year since Tara qualified as a driving instructor so it was nice to bump into her for a catch-up. Tara originally trained with me at Superdrive Academy where I deliver driver training to driving instructors in Andover and also the surrounding towns and villages.

I have seen Tara driving around the town on occasions, well it's hard not to bump into local driving instructors if I'm honest because Andover is only a small town. I can literally see all of the driving instructors in one day. Thee's about 20 of them which is surprising due to the size of the town.

I asked Tara is she still enjoying the job one year on? Her smile grew from ear to ear and she said "I'm absolutely loving it". She went on to tell me that it's still the best career move she's ever done and one year on, she hasn't looked back.

She told me that not only is she loving the job but it also fits around her family routine very well which is a bonus. After spending just 10 minutes talking with Tara, I could sense a huge wave of enthusiasm. This was the same enthusiasm I saw when she first passed her Part 3 exam.

I'd seen Tara's Facebook posts from time to time where she posted about her pupils passing their driving test. She was obviously doing a good job because she seemed to be posting on Facebook a couple of times per week.

One year on, she had progressed from being a novice driving instructor in Andover to being an accomplished one. Not only that, she was also making a great success at running her own business.

It's always good for me to see my ex-trainee's still enjoying the job, it gives me great pleasure. It's almost the same feeling you get when a pupil passes their driving test but in some way, a lot better.

Thanks for reading this Blog.
