I have lived in Suffolk for most of my life and currently live in Thurston, on the outskirts of Bury St Edmunds with my husband and daughter.

I have been driving for over 20 years and have always enjoyed the independence and freedom that driving has given me. Coupled with my previous career experience in training and coaching, I decided to become a driving instructor. I now specialise in training new Approved Driving Instructors.

I have always found enjoyment in teaching people new skills and coaching them to a high performance in what they want to do, now I get to do this whilst still enjoying driving.

If you too want to gain the freedom and independence that being an ADI can give you then please get in touch and I know I will be able to help you achieve it.

"I would recommend anyone to Advance Driving School and I felt Ann took a personal interest in my learning and passing. I had no experience and bad anxiety but needed to pass in a short amount of time due to having a baby on the way. Ann helped me overcome that and her techniques and tips are easy to remember and understand and I still use them today."

"A big thank you Ann Crowe, Megan says that you made her feel calm, relaxed and supported, she said you're an amazing driving instructor. She always came home excited about each lesson, building on her confidence to believe that she would pass, and got her to the high standard of driving hence passing first time. Megan said she will miss you, once again thank you very much!"
