Steve has many years experience as a manual driving instructor and was living and working as a driving instructor in and around Exeter for some years before he returned to his parent’s home in 2009. As an experienced driving instructor he checked out the local driving schools to see which one offered the best opportunities and he chose Hamilton. I am very pleased he did. We have had a great working relationship during that time and Steve has gone from strength to strength building up checkatrade feedback and recommendations. Steve's commitment as a professional driving instructor is reflected in his high pass rate.
Since his return to the Guildford area he has settled down and married. His wife Vanessa supports him fully and he is able to work daytime and evenings though weekends are limited by family/personal interests.
We are very pleased to have Benn on board. He transferred from another driving school late summer 2010 because he felt dissatisfied with the service he was getting from them. With over seven years manual experience he settled into our routine very quickly and has established himself with many successful test candidates since joining our team.
Benn lives in Chessington with his wife Sarah and instructs from Leatherhead to Kingston and the local area. He is always willing to help other instructors if they can’t cover a test and is prepared to go out of his way to assist his pupils. We are pleased indeed for Benn's professional approach to our industry.
Benn is very interested in the Air Cadets, Hinchley Wood, but that does not stop him being available during unsociable hours.
Mike is an old hand as a driving instructor, teaching hundreds of new drivers since qualifying back in the nineties. Most of his instructing has been with the AA, but 2010 was the year he decided Hamilton was the way forward. His experience is a great addition to our team and I hope he continues his successful career under our banner.
Mike has a very easy-going manner and can put any nervous driver at ease. He is married to Stephanie and with their young daughter lives in Epsom. From Epsom Mike is able to service as far as Kingston-Upon-Thames and the areas within. Some evenings and weekends are inevitable in this profession and he is able to fit around his pupils to suit their times.
It's great to have Zoran on board. He lives in Thames Ditton and covers all local areas both automatic and manual. Zoran joined us from another local driving school in May 2011 and has a lot of teaching experience including as a qualified teacher from his original Yugoslavia. He prefers working on a one to one basis away from the restrictions of a class room and emphasises structured training to all his pupils. Success comes with his conscientious approach to teaching. Zoran also has the task of looking after their young son as his wife works evenings. This does limit his availability after 6.00pm during the week.
Mat joined us in October 2012 and has already proved himself with a number of successful test passes. He is a great addition to our driving school with many years experience in the local area. Mat lives with his family in West Molesey and is very central to the areas we cover. He teaches driving lessons in both manual and automatic and has the flexibility to match the demands of his new drivers. He is also willing to cover a wide area and work unsociable hours so it is great to have him on board. Mat is used to running his own school so let us hope our support will convince him to stay with us for the longer term.
Phil is a new instructor to Hamilton School of Motoring but not to teaching, having been an instructor for some 30 years. Phil has been working on his own as an independant instructor for some years but is now looking for the support of a local driving school and lucky for us - he chose Hamilton and started early April 2013. Already Phil has passes with us and we are looking forward to a great working relationship.

I am very pleased to welcome Lipon into Hamilton School of Motoring (September 2013). A first rate instructor who has recently suffered from lack of support from his previous driving school. His addition to our fold will be a great advantage to both him and our pupils and this is already proving the case with a number of successful tests coming through.
Lipon is married with a family to support and to that end is willing to cover a wide area from his Sutton home and also work unsociable hours. This allows more flexibility for his new drivers and gives us the opportunity to take on additional pupils.

He is very customer orientated and will go out of his way to help his pupils.
We are lucky to have Paul joining us February 2015. Paul is a very experienced "A" Grade fully qualified instructor of many years standing.
He lived and taught in S.E.London before moving to Surbiton and joining another local driving school. After 2 years he found their costs too high and as he was lacking the support he needed Paul contacted us.

Ann is a recent addition joining us as a fully qualified driving instructor in August 2016. Ann has experience with other driving schools but has found that early promise of work and support either hasn’t lasted or didn’t materialise in the first place. Ann likes being able to run his own diary without interference and that any new enquiries are confirmed as genuine.
Ann lives with her family in Carshalton and is ideally positioned to cover much of our area. Ann is also willing to work both evenings and weekends for those pupils who are unavailable during weekdays.

I have worked and lived in the Surbiton area for the past 18 years.This in depth knowledge of the local area means I am more able to provide you with valuable experience driving on various road conditions. I believe in learning through experience,so you will spend the majority of lesson time learning the fundamentals of driving with the aim of passing your test as quickly as possible.An equally important aspect of learning is the theory,and we will spend time making sure you have the required knowledge of the Highway Code.
