A little bit of information about me

Phil Russell's Driving SchoolAbout me
Hi I'm Phil,

I am a fully qualified Driving Standards Agency Approved Driving Instructor (DVSA ADI) & I have been fully CRB checked. I am very passionate about road safety and I promote ‘Safe Driving for Life’.

I live in Great Glen with my lovely wife Sarah who is also self-employed as a French Legal Translator. I have lived in Leicester all my life and I have always worked with people in various Customer Service roles ranging from Retail Management to Call Centre & Resource Analyst posts since 1987, (makes me sound really ancient!!)

I decided to become a Driving Instructor because I love the fact that everyday brings a new face & with it, a brand new challenge for me. Every new driver I meet is different from the next so my day is always full of variety. The sense of achievement and job satisfaction I get from teaching somebody a new life-long skill is like no other & to see somebody pass their driving test is just a FANTASTIC FEELING! I have always loved driving since I passed my test in 1988 and I want to give all of my pupils the opportunity to gain their own independence & ultimately, change their lives forever!

Driving offers so many new opportunites for both your career & social life - once you've passed your test........you'll never look back!

I have been told that I have a ‘calming influence’ which helps me to conduct my lessons in a relaxed and friendly manner, making pupils feel at ease right from the start. I am a firm believer in having fun at work, so my aim is to make lessons as enjoyable and as productive as possible with some laughs along the way! My goal is to always create 'confident' and 'competent' drivers who will be a great addition to the roads in the future.

Take a few minutes to look at my 'testimonials' to see what some of my past students have to say and you might just find a story just like yours.....

I was trained by LDC in the latest adult coaching and training techniques so you can be assured that the training I give will be of the highest standard.

I chose to work with LDC because everybody is different and the LDC system allows for greater flexibility in my lessons so that you can learn to drive safely and at a rate that best suits your individual needs. The Workbook & DVD system helps me to do this far more effectively.
