Hi there, my name is Alan Hayward. I am the Principal Grade 6 Driving Instructor and founder of the Fast Track School of Driving based in Ipswich, Suffolk. I started offering driving lessons in Ipswich in 2005 and since then I have worked extremely hard to develop the Fast Track School of Driving into a professional driving school of exceptionally high quality and integrity, offering highly effective driving lessons, driving courses [Click here for an overview of standard and intensive driving tuition] and professional training courses for other Approved Driving Instructors [see independent driving instructors] and training courses for parents of learner drivers [see Teaching Parents to produce safe drivers].
Due to ongoing development over the past six years of trading and while continuing to offer standard driving lessons and driving courses the Fast Track School of Driving now specialises in getting learner drivers and transfer driving students from all over the country to practical driving test standard as quickly and cost-effectively as possible [see intensive weekend driving courses]: As the Principal Driving Instructor, I have also developed Fast Track School of Driving intensive driving and professional training courses that can be taken with a residential option so that driving students, Approved Driving Instructors and parents from other parts of the country can benefit from the Fast Track School of Driving highly competent approach and years of experience [see residential driving courses].
Please note that the quality of the Fast Track School of Driving approach in general and my professional driving instructional ability in particular are objectively illustrated by the fact that I am a Driving Standards Agency Grade 6 Driving Instructor - which places me in the top 7% of all UK Approved Driving Instructors [verifying documentation is available upon request].
For more subjective but equally valuable evidence of my professional competence and commitment please review the testimonials kindly provided by former driving students, Approved Driving Instructors and Parent Trainees all of which clearly acknowledge the benefit of the Fast Track School of Driving approach [see testimonials of driving lessons].
It is further worth noting that I have been a highly qualified and dedicated teacher, both occupationally and in the true sense of the word, for all of my professional life. I am also a qualified Level 1 Occupational Psychologist with experience of developing and delivering professional training courses. I have taught and examined in Psychology and host-tutored Professional English to international students for many years. I continue to combine such teaching with learner driver instruction and ADI Professional Development Training Courses [see training to become independent driving instructors] as well as Parent Training Courses [see teaching parents to promote safe driving].
More generally, my ongoing passion in life is the application of psychology to everyday situations - including the process of learning to drive, teaching students how to drive, training other Approved Driving Instructors how to more effectively teach students to drive as well as training parents to support the process of learning to drive for their sons and daughters. I particularly take the responsibility of teaching learner drivers to drive safely and to pass the practical driving test [which are two quite different things by the way] very seriously indeed. Please note I am genuinely personable and I adopt a friendly but highly focused and professional approach to both driving instruction and professional development training and support.
So if you would like to take advantage of my considerable professional competence and experience please do contact me via email in the first instance.
