I made my home in Bury St Edmunds 26 years ago - I love the area and it has been a perfect place to work and bring up a family.

My working life in recent years has involved teaching and training practical trade knowledge and skills to both adults and young people in a variety of settings.

I believe people learn best where there is a supportive and trusting working relationship between learner and coach, and I look forward to assisting you in getting your driving career off to a good start.

"I passed the UK test on my first attempt thanks to Phil's patience and professionalism! With his help I unlearned so many bad habits that had built up over 30 years of driving in different countries as well as improved my manual driving skills. Thank you!"  


"I've just passed with Phil who was the most exceptional educator and genuinely lovely man. I went from feeling exceptionally nervous (due to past learning experiences) to feeling like a safe, confident, independent driver for the first time ever. Thank you SO much Phil, you're a gem."


"Phil is a fantastic teacher who made learning to drive a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Phil's clear explanations and calm manner did not just get me through my driving test first time, but developed a style of safe and enjoyable driving as a full license holder. Big thanks Phil, all the best!"
