Alan Pontet Driving Tuition

Driving Instructor in Crawley and surrounding areas

Alan Pontet

Alan Pontet has been driving since 1973, and all his working life has involved driving. After 16 years of commercial driving, he qualified as an ADI (Approved Driving Instructor) and has been teaching the subject full–time since. He is currently graded 5 — the second highest grade awarded by the DVSA as the regulator of driving instructor standards.

Alan lives in Crawley, and offers driving instruction within an approximately 12 mile radius.

Alan welcomes all standards of driver, from complete beginners to those wishing to improve their driving techniques.

He offers flexible booking arrangements and a range of payment options. 1 hour, 1½ hour and 2 hour lessons are available.

Bringing to you the benefits from his experience in commercial driving combined with his teaching experience, Alan’s technique puts you at the centre of your learning, enabling you to develop at your own rate and to make decisions about your course and your qualifying test appointments — see Benefits to You.

Alan encourages you to see learning to drive as development of skills for life, especially in safe sharing of the road environment. He explains how and why we drive the way we do, including how we identify, assess, and manage risk associated with driving road vehicles. He further helps you by explaining in simple ways how cars work, and how they are likely to behave on the road depending upon how we drive them.
