Meet your driving instructor Pete Smith
Hi my name is Pete and I am a driving instructor with LA- Driving School. I can be found delivering driving lessons in Weston Super-Mare and surrounding areas. I have lived in Weston-super-Mare since December 1983, moving from Wootton Bassett, due to job re-location.
I have been married for over 37 years and have 1 Son and am a proud Grampy to 2 Grandsons.
My main hobbies are caravanning and watching motor racing. I also do DIY around my home, although not always when it is needed according to my wife.
Having been a petrol tanker driver for over 22 years, I decided to use my driving expertise to help others develop their driving skills and became a driving instructor in 1997. I completed my training at the Instructor College in Croydon, which I really enjoyed.
Today for driving lessons i use something a bit smaller than the petrol tanker, a small Hyundai in striking black. This car is fitted with so many refinments to make your lessons comfertable and safe and is a nippy little car indeed.
I find it very rewarding when I meet new pupils and help them become competent and confident drivers, whether they are complete novices or they have decided to start learning again after several years.
