About Me / Why Me

Clutch Gone Automatic Driving Lessons Why Me?

Hello my name is Stuart and hopefully I will become your automatic driving instructor. Before becoming an instructor I spent most of my career as a manager in the leisure industry and more recently in customer service. I have always enjoyed teaching and have taught courses such as First Aid, Lifeguarding and have gained other qualifications in Health and Safety. I bring these teaching, customer service and problem solving skills to my work as a driving instructor. I enjoy meeting new people, the challenge of driving tuition and the huge job satisfaction of seeing the pupil gain their license. I began teaching manual lessons but have recently made the switch to automatic instruction.

As your automatic driving instructor I will provide a client centered approach for your learning (yes that's right you're the boss!) in a safe and comfortable environment. As the pupil you will set your own goals and learn at a pace to suit you. With my guidance I will help you believe and achieve the ultimate goal of that full driving license and becoming a safe driver for life.

*you will be driving a new car which is presently a 23 plate Renault Clio (check what other cars you might be driving with other instructors or schools)

*check my google reviews-these are all mine not reviews shared over many instructors within a school

*I do not offer multiple discounts, initial free lessons and other gimmicks in an effort to entice and keep you. I know what I am doing and believe in myself and my methods. You may get cheaper lessons but cheaper lessons are not always the best quality or the best value for money

Our automatic driving lessons will be fun, progressive and informative delivered with enthusiasm, patience and honesty. While I cannot guarantee a first time pass (nobody can) I will do everything possible to ensure it happens. So, don't delay get in touch today!!


Stuart is a great instructor who helped me pass my driving test and was flexible to be able to fit lessons in at short notice. He’s a very friendly person whom I got along with from the get-go making it easier for me to feel comfortable when I was very nervous about driving (especially roundabouts and dual carriageway). He maintains record of everyone’s progress and appreciates whenever we make progress and this helped to build confidence. Stuart takes his time to explain when you make mistake and prepared me with all the skills I needed to pass my test. This fine gentleman wont just teach you to pass the test, he will set you up to be a good driver for life. I feel blessed to have met such an amazing person, he truly went above and beyond.

Stuart has given me the advice and skills to successfully pass my test first time and I could not be more grateful that I had him as an instructor. Right from the first lesson it was clear Stuart was very knowledgeable and his way of teaching put me at ease as I was very nervous. The rapport we build was invaluable to helping me learn and progress from my errors. I believe Stuart was genuinely invested in my success and any future learners would be lucky to find themselves at the wheel next to him. Thank you so much Stuart…you have helped me change my life.

Stuart is an outstanding driving instructor. From lesson one he was always made me feel as calm as possible when driving. As someone who could drive in a different country but needed to learn how to drive on the opposite side of the road (AHHH!), Stuart helped me find my confidence within a few lessons. He always reassured me that if I was driving safely I would pass my driving test and that helped me stay calm during my exam - and I passed!!!
Couldn't recommend Stuart more, no matter if you are a new driver or just need a bit of confidence building!
