About me

A little bit of information about me

Roger's Driving SchoolAbout me
Hi I am Roger and welcome to my website. Here is a little information about who I am.

I fell in love with south wales over a decade ago and chose to move to the valleys just over two years ago. I love the scenery, the sense of community and, most of all, the warmth of the people here. I love living here and would like to use my skills to contribute to the safety and wellbeing of this area.

Why would I want to do that?

Well I am passionate about making a positive difference in the lives of those I work with. Giving people the skills they need to be safe on the road, and the freedom to travel to work without being reliant on public transport. How can I help you achieve your goals and your independence?

So who am I?

I am Roger, I have been married to Debbie for over thirty years and we have two daughters. Debbie teaches piano at some of the local schools and is a supply librarian for Caerphilly council. My eldest daughter is a midwife at the Royal Gwent in Newport and my youngest is looking for work.

What is my background?

I spent over twenty years working in manufacturing industry in various purchasing functions. But I knew something was missing. Although successful in what I was doing I felt unfulfilled and wanted to “make a difference”. This led me into coaching, tutoring and more recently teaching driving. I love seeing pupils grow in ability and confidence, and I share their sense of achievement when they get that all important pass!I love driving and one of the highlights of my life was driving a Chieftain Tank....

It may look safe and secure – but my aim would be to have you feel this safe and secure in a normal car. You will also be an awful lot more comfortable!!!

Away from driving I enjoy walking my dog, good food, music and hearing my home filled with laughter.
