Hi, I’m Alistair Powell

Hi, my name is Alistair Powell. I am a fully qualified Approved Driving Instructor (ADI) offering driving lessons in Nottingham. Originally from the North West I have now lived in Nottingham for coming up to 17 years. I have a home in Mapperley I share with my Wife and two amazing kids.

I have a Degree in Business Studies from Sheffield Hallam University and spent most of my career in the Motor Trade with some of the UK’s Largest Dealer Groups including Pendragon PLC and Inchcape Retail in various roles including General Manager, before a successful move to driving instruction.

I now specialise in running Driving Courses with an emphasis on the Learner and their development. I have completed 60 hours of training in the latest DVSA driving syllabus. As part of this I have passed Parts 1, 2 & 3 of the Approved Driving Instructor tests as required by the DVSA in order to provide driving lessons to the required standard.
