Hello my name is Marcus Gainey and I became a Qualified Driving Instructor when I was 22. Since then I’ve been improving my skills and loving the job. I’m an advanced motorcycle rider with the Institute of Advanced Motorists, and plan to expand through other classes of licence. I’m enthusiastic about all things driving and engineering. I started this career path to help improve our roads safety and am passionate in achieving this goal.
I try to update my car every 2-3 years to keep it at the highest possible standard, as well as get the newest car tech to help improve understanding of how they work, and make sure they are used safely and correctly. I currently use a 2017 Audi A3 1.0L petrol. You can find out more on The Car page.
I became a driving instructor to improve the safety of our roads, since then I’ve added to this by saying I hope to improve the industry as a whole. I do this by teaching to the highest possible standard, bringing in high levels of Knowledge, Advanced driving and Defensive driving techniques. The whole driving instruction industry has changed over recent years to push for a more natural learning experience, this is done by bringing in coaching techniques. A lot of instructors have struggled with the change whereas I’ve tried to push this even further by bringing the latest technology into lessons. My car is equipped with camera technology allowing me to show you exactly what’s happened and how we can improve in real time. I keep accurate records of each lesson to keep track of the learning process. I pride myself on creating some of the safest most progressive drivers.
