Barry Bradbury

All my life I have been passionate about safe, enjoyable driving. In 2005 I was given the opportunity to take this passion to a whole new level. I trained to become a Driving Standards Agency Approved Driving Instructor.

Since that time I have used the skills built up over more than thirty years to teach new drivers of ages ranging from 16yrs to 78yrs to become confident drivers, gaining the freedom and ability to drive on any roads, and often becoming personal ‘taxi’ driver to the rest of their family.


Ford Fiesta

The Ford Fiesta is an ideal car for the learner driver. It's a small car which is comfortable and easy to drive yet solidly built for safety. It has air conditioning (a must for a hot summer) and is fitted with He-Man dual controls for your safety. It has a nippy 1.4L TDCi engine to give you an enjoyable drive.

Finding the right driving instructor was an important task for me. As I believe they play an important role in the outcome and lessons that will be instilled for life. After numerous unreturned enquiries to various driving schools, I came across Mr Bradbury. My aim was to find an instructor who loved his/her job irrespective of their years of experience, this I found in Mr Bradbury. Thus, easily he exuded patience, discipline, an aura of calm, friendliness, always on time, etc… together with his years of experience, creating the right environment that made learning enjoyable and easy. Thou I didn’t pass the first time, where my past experience/bad habits got the better of me, he had confidence in me. He had my best interest at heart; he operated with urgency to my case without delay. It is credit to Mr Bradbury that I passed my driving test, more importantly, lessons learned on road safety. I would recommend him to anyone, you will be in good hands and you will not regret it. I wish Forward Driver Training all the best! Kind Regards, Lavenia.
