- As a former police Sergeant I’m an expert in law theory
I am very calm having been trained to drive in the most stressful and dangerous of situations.
I am patient with young or nervous drivers having even assisted in the driving tuition of my own children which is more of a challenge than normal as any parent who has tried will know!!
My intense police training taught me how to spot danger far ahead while travelling at high speed. This has stood me in good stead over the years in my personal driving habits within the normal speed limits and has also allowed me to pass on invaluable tips to others.
