I began my career in retail working on the shop floor and my final position was Regional Manager, managing 10 superstores with an annual turnover of 100 million. This inspired me to set up my own business and in 2004 I began my journey in the driver tuition industry. Once I qualified, I set up SmartLearner Driving School, with the vision of becoming the largest driving school in the area, in 2016 we opened our office after recruiting 25 instructors whilst still being based at home. To date, we have over 6 full-time office staff and 56 instructors and are the largest driving school in Coventry having just won the Intelligent Instructor Regional Driving School of the Year 2022 (for the second year running).
