About Open Road Driving School
Martin has been a qualified Instructor for 16 years and he currently holds Grade A status.   He covers the full driving experience from complete beginners to drivers who need refresher lessons.

He specialises in very nervous pupils, quickly putting them at ease and helping them over their anxieties and to fulfil their dreams of driving and independence.

His instructional car is currently a manual 1.0 Ford Fiesta petrol 16 plate.

Martin holds licences for most categories of road vehicles from Motorbikes (A) up to and including Articulated Trucks (C+E), so there is no shortage of experience and knowledge to pass on to pupils.

Martin is as happy behind the wheel of a car as he is in the largest of trucks.

Martin's driving experience has also covered driving with the Territorial Army.   He has driven a variety of Military vehicles from Land Rovers, Armoured personnel carriers to more specialist Vehicles such as DROPS (Demountable Rack Offload and Pick up System).   This form of driving is often carried out off road and in tactical situations, i.e. without any light and minimal noise.

He also holds an MOD Driving instructor licence.

Martin has recently returned from an arduous 6 month Tour of Duty in Afghanistan, where his job involved Close Protection Driving, protecting US 4 star Generals, UK Generals, and Members of the Press.

You can be rest assured that, when you undertake your driving lessons with Martin, he will be passing on years of different and unusual driving experiences, not just the normal experiences, qualifications and knowledge.

His Military background ensures that when you book with Martin you can be rest assured of a reliable professional service - Promptness, Reliability, Thoroughness - and, above all, an enjoyable learning experience.
