Melvyn is the proprietor of Awards Driving School in the Leicester, Loughborough, Coalville, and Hinckley areas, and has been a fully qualified driving instructor for 18 years. He gets great satisfaction from seeing his students progressing and becoming ever more confident on the road. He says that many of his first-time learners are concerned about negotiating other traffic on the road, and also about how to control the clutch on a manual car.
These fears are only natural, but Melvyn’s easy-going approach and natural teaching style ensures that such worries are quickly dispelled.
Melvyn recognises that every pupil is unique and has different requirements. This is why he sees to it that each pupil has a personal instructor who can adapt to the varying needs of learner drivers.
Melvyn is a Grade 5 DVSA Approved Driving Instructor, a Diamond Approved Taxi Trainer, a Pass Plus Qualified Instructor, and a member of the DIA (Driving Instructors Association). When he is not out on the road in the Leicester area, (which is most of the time), he enjoys all sports, but especially football and golf.
