Hello my name is Steve Drury and I am a fully qualified Government Approved Driving Instructor (ADI). I can provide a range of driving lessons to suit your specific needs. These include single hourly lessons up to a 30 hour semi-intensive or a One Week Pass Course. Also if you've passed your driving test recently or many years ago, now's the time to build up that confidence. To help, you may wish to consider doing either a few refresher lessons or the Pass Plus course. Bur whichever method you want, the focus will always be on your wishes.
All our lessons use the unique LD System of driving tuition. This is an exciting way to learn to drive which will save you money by reducing the number of lessons/hours it takes to learn. The System focuses on specific tasks and you become prepared it. (So, there's no guesswork as you enter the car for the Lesson). All LDC driving schools share a common aim - to provide the highest and safest standards of tuition at the lowest overall cost. The key to the LD System is that it is continually up to date with the latest adult coaching and training techniques, so you can be assured the assistance received will be of the highest standard, with respect to the DVSA requirements (including during the Pandemic).
As for my own education, I believe in being aware of and using best practices through continuous professional development (CPD). Courses completed in the last few years include 'Principles of Safeguarding and Protecting Children, Young People or Vulnerable Adults' (FAA Level 3 Award), 'Cognitive Behavioural Therapy Diploma', 'Applied Driver Behaviour', 'Stress and the Learner', and 'Covid-19 Infection Control and Safe Training Protocols'. Also I'm looking forward to the next annual DIA Conference (after Covid).
As a driving instructor you get a real buzz with helping learners to successfully pass their test, plus the fact, you’ve encouraged them through gaining knowledge and experience to drive safely and confidently from that moment on. It’s a job that just keeps on giving.
When I became a driving instructor, my friends were not surprised at all. I was known for my patience, my understanding and had trained work colleagues. I’m proud to count the LDC amongst my unique and original set of companies that I’ve worked for; The British Museum, The Kennel Club, City College Brighton and Hove and British Rail.
So, I chose to work with LDC because they understand that everybody is different, and the LD System allows for this flexibility in the lessons. A Client Learning environment means the learner takes control, and he/she is able to drive safely and confidently at a rate that suits them. I aim to make every lesson enjoyable and as productive as possible, and the LD System helps me to do this very effectively.
The key to the LD System is that it's continually up to date with the latest adult coaching and training techniques, so you can be assured the training received will be of the highest standard, with respect to the DVSA requirements.
Lessons are always conducted in a calm, friendly and relaxed manner as it’s essential that pupils need to feel at ease, in order to learn new techniques and skills required to become a successful driver themselves. Naturally being Covid safe is a big part of being proactively careful.
As a family, we’ve been in Shoreham by Sea for a number of years, and our son has now moved onto secondary school. We really enjoy being here as it’s a place with great vitality and there’s always something going on, be it high or low tide, sailing or flying.
As for me with time away from the car, I love cycling, and only a few years ago, I cycled the length of Spain on a cultural pilgrimage. My son and I support different football teams, so we have plenty to clash about! And occasionally I like to do photography.
Well I hope this gives you a brief idea about me. To note, modern instructors are not scary, we're here to help you. So please feel free to click here to "Contact me"
