Work History

In 2007 I founded Fun on Wheels UK Quad Bike & Buggy safaris in the Bury St Edmunds area. At the same time, an invitation to become an Instructor for the European ATV Safety Institute (EASI) led to the self-discovery of a passion for teaching and a desire to pass on solid knowledge and driving skills to the next generation of drivers. A qualified Approved Driving Instructor with many years driving LGV Class 1 vehicles and towing trailers, I am an experienced class B + E trailer towing tutor also a Health & Safety Instructor for the NTTA.

Company

I am a qualified Approved Driving Instructor (ADI) of the Driving Standards Agency and a member of the Driving Instructors Association (DIA), ADINJC. I have been graded as ROSPA 'Gold’ advanced driver and I am also a ROSPA advanced instructor. I I regularly attend Continual Professional Development opportunities to maintain up to date knowledge and high standards of coaching skills.

NTTA

Been a member of the NTTA from around 2015, and started to get more involved with the health and safety for towing courses and developing a QS accreditation. Joined the Council this year with a passion to improve the awareness, knowledge and understanding of health and safety and further improve the public awareness of safe towing.
