Driving Instructor - Harrogate & Knaresborough
Hi Everyone. My name is Chris Brogden. I am 48, married to Geraldine, and have one daughter, Melanie. We have lived in Harrogate since 1992, and we feel lucky to live in such a nice part of the world. I have spent the last 25 years working in car sales, and I like to think I have a calm, patient and friendly approach towards anyone I interact with. I am a bit of a petrol head, and like to tinker with my recently restored 1991 retro classic Honda CR-X Coupe in my spare time!
I am also a serving volunteer Special Sergeant for North Yorkshire Police Special Constabulary, and I have been helping to police my local community for over fourteen years now. This, amongst general policing has involved assisting the Roads Policing Group (aka Traffic cops!), and so I have been at the sharp end of dealing with the aftermath of road traffic collisions, witnessing first-hand what can happen, but also try to educate drivers to promote safer driving before bad things happen!
Due to my passion with safe driving, and my experience gained in a customer service back ground, I feel I am well equipped to teach you not only how to reach driving test standard, but also to ensure that you gain the skills and experience you need to help keep you driving safely for the rest of your life. As a parent, there is nothing higher on my priority list than ensuring that my daughter becomes the safest driver that she can possibly be on today’s roads. I am sure parents have the same aspirations for their sons and daughters.
We at Learn Driving UK ensure that all pupils are taught to a high standard that will give reassurance that they are safe and ready to drive on the UK’s busy road network. We do not rush pupils along or move at a lower pace than necessary. We work at the pupil’s pace, and our client centred approach is at the heart of how we operate, which really does seem to work.
I did my research before becoming a potential driving instructor, as I wanted to be involved with a company which has a great reputation, and one that delivers the best possible tuition and customer service at a fair price. I came to the decision that LDUK ticked all the boxes for me. Hopefully, we will be the right choice for you too!
I came to Learn Driving UK as I'd heard so many positive things said by friends at school. They all passed first time, each had different Instructors too! I was still very nervous about the prospect of being out there on the road but was made to feel very at ease and I knew I was in safe hands. The teaching methods were spot on and I really appreciated the patience they showed me on more than one occasion. I got through my test first time too. I'm just sad to have to say goodbye to my instructor. They become a friend as you work through the process, which makes it feel more enjoyable. Thank you Learn Driving UK, you were brilliant! Yes, I would recommend Learn Driving UK
