Hi my name is Sean,
I have been with Andy1st since I started being a driving instructor and thoroughly enjoy being part of the team. The support i have receieved is like just being part of the family.
I cover South Birmingham including Kings Heath, Kings Norton and Moseley.
I relish a challenge and like helping others in every aspect of my job. I am patient, supportive and hard working. I like my pupils to feel comfortable in the car as I am fully aware that learning to drive can be a stressful time. I am willing to accommodate pupils needs as I know everyone is an individual in all aspects.

I am a driving instructor that primarily teaches learner drivers the skills to pass the U.K. driving test, but in addition to this I also train pupils in methods to help pass the theory and hazard perception test. I also am authorised and registered for Pass Plus and motorway tuition. Even if you are a fully qualified driver I can provide refresher / confidence sessions, eco drive (fuel saving) sessions and for those who may drive a car for their business, how about learning safe confident progressive drive skills?
During my time as an instructor I have specialized in very nervous pupils amongst others, but whether you are a novice or not, young or not so young or pick things up quickly or not, your driving lessons will be tailored towards you as an individual. I am committed to teaching safe driving skills not just for your test, but for life! I do this by creating a calm and friendly learning environment inside the car with a professional code of practice at all times but will always put you and your safety first!
I am based in Castle Bromwich, Birmingham covering the following areas:

Your lessons will generally start from home but any local pick up / drop off, can be arranged easily at no extra cost. E.g. college, work, friends or other. I understand that life can be hectic so I always aim to be flexible and will try to fit around your schedule whether it be very early mornings, daytime, evening or weekend lessons you are after. Whether you are after 1 lesson per week or multi lessons per week. A single lesson at a time or double lessons. Intensive courses also available.
Having a driving licence will improve your opportunities in all areas of your life including social, academic and work, I will give you the skills and techniques to drive you forward.

Aswell as English I'm fluent in urdu and punjabi. With regards to the hours that i am willing to teach I will fit in with your needs.

With our roads becoming more and more crowded and busy, the probability of accidents is rising. Coupled with the rise in insurance costs, it’s never been so important to try and avoid that unfortunate bump or shunt. Anything from a slip-up in a car park to a motorway pile up, we here at Andy1st want to help you prepare for life out on the busy roads today.
Whether you are learning to drive for the first time or you’ve had a break from learning and are now returning to it, we are here to offer guidance and support right from the start. When you are due to take a lesson, make sure you are fresh and well-rested. This will help your concentration and prepare you for learning. Being tired and preoccupied can make you lose focus and concentration and this in turn can cause accidents.
We teach you the basics of learning to drive and our highly trained instructors take you through the steps methodically and expertly. They are fully aware of how nervous you might be as they were learners once too you know! We specialise in and are committed to helping anyone who wants or needs to learn to drive. We aim to help everyone who comes to us achieve that goal. For some, it doesn’t take very long. They may even choose to take an intensive course and spend full days learning thus passing their test in a few days. Others may find it a bit trickier and take longer over it. That is fine. When you meet your instructor they will spend time watching and assessing you and finding out the way you learn. That way, they can devise a learning package that suits your individual needs. We don’t believe in a one size fits all style of learning. We consider tailor made packages to be much more effective and they save money and time for all those involved.
We pay particular attention to the safety and well-being of our pupils. We want this journey to be a fun one but with a serious message. When you get out there alone, making your own decisions and controlling the car yourself, we want you to be prepared and ready for that nest step. We will teach you valuable hazard perception skills and observational techniques which will help when you are “going it alone”. We also offer a Pass Plus course for new drivers. This is run in conjunction with the Government and works to reduce the number of accidents on the road involving new drivers. We provide experiences in driving at night, in bad weather and on the motorway to name but a few. This course consists of 6 lessons and could reduce your insurance premiums as well as helping you read the road more effectively. Anything that reduces your risk of having an accident has got to be worth doing.
In addition, we have provided some information on accident hotspots. You may think we’re trying to scare you but we’re not! We are simply highlighting areas that require additional care and attention and by bringing these to your attention, you can familiarise yourself with them and perhaps practice them with your instructor.
In Birmingham, we have a lot of tourism and so there are many visitors to the City who are unfamiliar with the surroundings. In the centre of the city, Icknield Street (A4540) and Dudley Road are littered with a number of accidents from slight to fatal. They are both very busy routes into the city and if they happen to be roads you may well travel down regularly, we suggest that you practice on these roads to build up your knowledge of the area. Where the Dudley Road meets Winson Green Road is a notoriously bad junction so take care there.
Another junction where a large number of collisions have been reported is the junction of Hill Street and Navigation Street. Roads that are very heavy with traffic include the Bristol Road (A38), Pershore Road and Lee Bank Middleway. The huge traffic signal area where Lee Bank crosses the Bristol Road is another serious hotspot for accidents.
Moving to the Moseley area of the city, special care should be taken on Wake Green Road and Alcester Road especially at the junctions of Salisbury Road and St. Mary’s Row.
Don’t forget, this knowledge is there to help you, not scare you.
