B-Safe School of Motoring
B-Safe School of Motoring is a partnership of fully qualified DSA approved Instructors who pride themselves in giving a professional, patient and friendly service to our clients. We make learning to drive a relaxed and hopefully a fun experience.
As the name of our company suggests we take safety very seriously, hence our policy of not making or receiving telephone calls whilst on lessons: thats what answering machines are for. We’ve also chosen cars with extremely high safety standards, intentionally picking bright colours to make them stand out from the crowd, contributing to the safety factor. We teach driving as a life skill and look upon the Driving Test as our minimum standard. We would thoroughly recommend Pass Plus, grants are available which would save you some money on the cost. The course may even save your life!!!!!
Hello, my name is Brian Stevenson DSA. ADI.
Just to give you a short résumé of my career to date, I have spent my entire working life around motor vehicles one way or another, I served my time as a Panel Beater and then moved on to selling cars, working in one of Aberdeen’s Prestige car Dealerships, rising to Sales Manager after 5 years. After a further 3 years I decided on a complete change to get away from the stress of sales.
I decided the open road beckoned, so I extended my experience of all things motor powered and passed my LGV class 1 test. To try and keep things short I spent 15 years driving 44 ton artics long distance all over the UK, spending up to a week away from home at a time.
Having spent a good deal oftime away from home, decided I needed to be at home more. So what do I enjoy, and what am I good at, driving and meeting people, It seems an obvious choice considering the fact that I travelled over a 100,000 accident free miles per year and gathered a vast experience of driving that I should try and pass on that experience to others.
So I spent some time learning how to pass on these skills using modern teaching methods and building more teaching experience with one of the major national companies, whilst with them I trained along with Kevin, we decided to part from said company as most of our business came from referral and not the National Office.
Hello My name is Kevin Hughes DSA. ADI.
I was born and educated in Aberdeen, I started my working life as a Plant Mechanic. My partner Jenny started up her own Accountancy Business and in order for her to fully focus on the Business we decided that I would care for our 3 daughters on a full time basis. I found this to be extremely rewarding and fulfilling and it turned out to be a turning point in my life.
When the children started school they needed less care and attention. This was my time to turn my attention to my career. I decided to combine my ambition to teach with my love of driving and train to become a Driving Instructor. After 2 years of hard training and studying I achieved my aim of becoming an Approved Driving Instructor.
I stayed with the National Driving School I trained with for a few more years, gaining more experience. Brian Stevenson, one of my work colleagues and myself decided to set up our own Driving School incorporating all the skills and teaching methods that we have learned.
While I realise learning to drive can be stressful it can and should also be fun and I feel that my patient, caring yet thorough teaching style makes me well suited to provide any learner driver with the desired result, becoming a safe fully qualified driver.
