Where the Passion Begins
Even more driving in my spare time!
Many people ask how I got into being a driving instructor. Well the simple answer is I used to teach Snowboarding as a bit of a hobby and really enjoyed it! The lack of mountains in the Northwest soon put a stop to me doing that! So I turned to another hobby I love to do and that was driving! As you can see whether it be track day driving or driving my classic car for charity I just cannot get enough!
