Sandy Wilson, Instructor - Modern Driving Skills

Sandy Wilson  Principal Instructor and Fleet Driver Assessor

After a career in architectural and interior design and a period of living in Spain I retrained as a Driving Instructor with BSM.  When giving lessons I draw on my design experience; the spatial awareness, the attention to detail and logical structuring of lessons. The experience of driving in Spain for a number of years has also given me an alternative perspective on driving.

I make use of the Drive IQ e-learning modules to support the practical driving lessons giving our pupils a more rounded driving education. I passionately believe that young drivers in the 17 – 19 year old age group should consider taking the full BTEC Driving Science course. The benefits are greater awareness of safe driving and an excellent addition to any CV. In order to expand my interest in teaching safe driving to this vunerable age group I have gained a Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector (PTLLS) award grade 4. This equips me to give presentations in schools in conjunction with Brake, the road safety charity.

We now offer a Fleet Driver Assessment service to small and medium companies that have 5 or more vehicles. To manage this division of Modern Driving Skills – Fleet Driving Skills – I am a qualified DSA Registered Fleet Driver Trainer and Assessor.

    Having not driven for ten years, I had completely lost my confidence. I found Sandy to be patient, reassuring and extremely professional and he supported me to get driving again far more quickly than I would have ever imagined. I also liked the fact that he left it up to me to decide how many lessons I felt I needed: there was no pressure to have any more lessons than was strictly necessary, unlike with some other companies.

    I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Sandy and, in fact, I already have!

    Alison Moore : Drive confident pupil


    Sandy is an excellent instructor I passed with only 23 hours behind the wheel with no former experience. He is laid back and I felt at ease straight away, instead of being critical he really helps iron out driving problems. I have recommended him to everybody that I have heard is having driving lessons. I think he’s great!

    Simon Lawless : Student


    I had been through a couple of driving schools and had been very unhappy with their service as I felt they were just interested in the money. When I registered with Sandy he was very upfront with me and told me what to do and what not to do. He took me straight through what was needed in a friendly and very helpful way and within three months I had both passed my theory and practical test. My exact words to Sandy were “I would recommend you to all my family and friends”. And that is exactly what I intend to do.
