Hi, I’m Jim Slaven – a Driving Standards Agency Approved driving instructor and a Diamond Elite Advanced Driver. I live near Dumfries and work in the area around Dumfries. I hold a Diploma in Driving Instruction from the Driving Instructors Association in association with Middlesex University and I regularly attend courses to keep myself up to date with changes in legislation in the driver training industry and changes in driver training methods.
I welcome people who may be nervous and put them at their ease.
You may be a complete novice, someone who wants motorway tuition or guidance, someone who is part trained and would like to continue after a break or someone who would like a refresher course to get them back on the road.
Pupils of all driving abilities are always welcome.
I also offer Pass Plus courses which give you further experience in driving without the possible dangers of experimenting on your own. The course covers urban driving, rural driving, all weather driving, night driving, dual carriageway driving and motorway driving.
Further tuition can also be given for driving in and on snow when the weather conditions allow.
The car I use for lessons at the moment is a new Ford Fiesta fitted with dual controls for your safety and confidence.
