Hi, my name is David Broadhurst. I am a self-employed fully qualified DVSA Approved Driving Instructor (ADI) and Occupational Driver Trainer (Fleet). I am also a Driving Advisor with The Wales Mobility and Driving Assessment Service based at Rookwood Hospital in Cardiff.
I am a member of the Driving Instructors Association (DIA), who also provide comprehensive Public Liability and Professional Indemnity insurance. I have a full enhanced disclosure Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) check.
I trained and qualified to become a driving instructor with RED Instructor Training.
The pace of tuition is matched to the ability of the student, as with all things in life, some students pick it up much quicker than others.
My aim is to get students to test standard as quickly as possible. I am not one of those driving instructors who drag things out for financial gain.
When a student is ready for test I will tell them so. However, I will not put a student forward for a driving test until I am 100% confident in their ability to be able to pass the test.
All my lessons are tailored to the individual needs of the student

I am fully qualified to instruct drivers with disabilities and I use a specially equipped Honda Jazz 2014 automatic. Equipped with a variety of modifications to cater for most requirements, ie. Jeff Gosling push pull hand controls, flip up left foot accelerator, Lodgeson Infra-red ancillary controls for the indicators, horn, wipers & lights whilst steering with one hand (left or right).
If you're aged 17-25, live in Wales and have passed your driving test the great news is that you can discover more driving techniques, hints and tips for as little as £20.
