“Martin’s coaching and tuition was without doubt first class. He was professional in his approach and I found him to be genuinely interested in supporting me to become an advanced driver.
He always adopted a positive approach offering constructive criticism in a patient, relaxed and friendly manner. I enjoyed all of my sessions with Martin who ‘turned my driving style around
Driving has now changed from a chore to an activity which provides immense enjoyment as Martin showed me how to drive my car safely to its full potential. I have no hesitation in recommending Martin as an excellent instructor”.

“As an employer whose staff need to drive for work and as a Health and Safety company it is essential that we are proactive in ensuring we are assessing the risks and taking action to reduce them wherever possible. Martin from Verodrive ran a half-day course to assess our driving skills and offer suggestions for improvements. His approach is that of a coach and his calm manner put everyone at ease in the pre-driving classroom session – and yes we found out some things we had forgotten!
The driving session, in pairs, was delivered in the same calm and instructive way as we were unobtrusively assessed and then given feedback. We were really pleased with the course and all of us learnt things we could implement to drive more safely, more economically and with confidence.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Martin and his team to all companies who have drivers, either in vans or cars, who are representing them out on the roads every day”.

“I decided to undertake the IAM’s Advanced Driving Challenge at the age of 55 because I felt that my driving skills were not as good as they should be and I was worried that I might compromise the safety of other road users. Martin got rid of the bad habits collected over the years and to reach the exacting standards of the IAM. His patience, encouragement and perseverance in dealing with someone who was willing, but not particularly consistent, were exemplary.
I will always be grateful for Martin’s teaching skills and I feel that I am a much safer road user now than I was before I undertook the course”.
Clare from Bristol
“I found the whole experience both enjoyable and rewarding. Martin managed to offer both encouragement and critique as required. He was able to reinforce the better aspects of my driving while also highlighting deficiencies and bad habits with patience and good humour.
I learned a great deal from the coaching – much more than I had anticipated at the outset. Apart from improved control and vehicle sympathy, I was made aware of how much information was available to me in the road environment that I had been, up until then, blissfully unaware of.
I now find driving a much more interesting and enjoyable experience.”
