Why choose me for your driving instructor?

Mke Palmer Driving InstructorIn 2018, having completed my training and qualified as an ADI, I retired from being a Project Manager in IT and took up driving instructing as a part-time career whilst being semi-retired.

Driving Instructing is not my main source of income. I do it because I enjoy it, not to make money out of you. I am pretty sure my pupils enjoy the lessons too. Taking lessons only 20 hours per week gives me time to offer more than just driving lessons. I take time to prepare each lesson beforehand and provide useful follow-up material afterwards, including dashcam clips for post-lesson review.

As well as preparing you thoroughly for the Practical Driving Test, I offer help with preparation for the Theory Test as well, including free access to Theory Test Pro, a highly realistic online simulation of the UK’s driving theory tests. It contains all the official revision test questions licensed from the DVSA, the people who set the tests.

I am very conscious of the damage that cars make to the environment. When the time is right, I plan to teach in an all-electric car. However, in the meantime I am committed to offset all my mileage emissions by investing in Verified Carbon Standard projects. In July 2019, I offset all the exhaust emissions from January 2018 to July 2019 amounting to 4.582 tonnes of CO2. In July 2020 I offset another year’s worth of exhaust emissions amounting to a further 5.478 tonnes of CO2. Next July, I will calculate my mileage emissions for the year and do the same.

If you live in or around Warminster, Westbury or Frome, and are looking for a calm and patient instructor who will get you that all important driving licence as quickly as possible without costing the earth, then please give me a call.

Recent Driving Test Success


Tamara from Warminster

"Mike is a very calm, friendly instructor who will help you gain confidence and the skills necessary for driving. He gives good advice whenever you have a query. He’s also very easy to talk to, especially when you need a confidence boost! I wouldn’t have been able to pass first time without him! I would highly recommend Mike."

Successful Pupil

Nick from Warminster

"Mike has been a fabulous teacher and mentor during my driving lessons. Cut the story short an instructor had let me down 2 days before my intensive lessons. Luckily Mike came through and taught me some very valuable lessons! I had my test in Chippenham and I didn’t have any previous experience of driving in Chippenham before I started with Mike. Thankfully, I passed first time with 5 minors."

Teresa from Warminster

"Michael went out of his way to help my daughter pass her test. It would not have happened this year without him. He took great care to keep the driving environment clean because of Covid. He was patient and professional but also put her at ease."

Heidi from Warminster

"A very friendly and kind man! Thank you Mike for helping Bryony pass her test. Will definitely be using you for our other daughter in a few years time."
