Meet Your Driving Instructor - Margaret Masterson

Hi, welcome to my website.

My name is Margaret Masterson.

I have been a driving instructor for 36 years, so have helped hundreds of people to pass their driving test.

I lost count of the exact number at 600!

Married to Mike for 45 years, I have two grown-up children and five grandchildren and live near Oldham.

I’ve seen it all: been there, done it and got the tee-shirt in terms of teaching people how to learn how to drive.

I’ve helped all types of pupils: from the very anxious or very nervous to the very confident and all in between.

I’m very patient and obviously very experienced, so I feel this really helps pupils to pass their driving test whether they are aged 17 or 70, male or female.

My goal is to teach people of all ages to drive safely and competently for the rest of their lives.

I have now been an instructor for 36 years and really enjoy teaching.

I teach people to drive in a new Skoda Fabia SE which is really easy to drive too!

If you want to learn how to drive safely and competently for the rest of your life, please give me a call on 07721 384 811 and book an initial lesson to see how I can help you.

    Pass Plus

    Pass Plus is an initiative by the government body, The Driving Standards Agency, to help drivers to develop their driving skills and knowledge in areas where they may have limited experience.

    It is particularly relevant for newly-qualified drivers.

    The initiative is in conjunction with the motor insurance industry which recognises this higher level of driving and gives discounts on insurance premiums to holders of Pass Plus.

    Pass Plus is usually 12 hours' driving instruction delivered in two-hour slots.

    Each two-hour follows a module of learning with a specific objective to help participants improve their driving skills and knowledge.

    Modules include: in town driving, all weather driving, night driving, rural roads, dual carriageways and motorways. The aim of the course is to show drivers how to deal with different road traffic conditions in different locations.

    It’s a must for all newly-qualified drivers to get more skills, experience and confidence to drive safely and competently for the rest of their lives.
