The Instructors

Meet the Coles Driving Academy Instructors

Hi my name is Anthony I'm the proprietor of Coles Driving Academy, please scroll down the page to meet our other instructors, I opened the academy in 2001 and since then we have gone from strength to strength. We have grown mainly by our recommendations which make us very proud, we work hard to ensure that you, our customers have a service that you can depend. 

Anthony, Graduation

Since 2002 I have been a trainer of driving instructors, nowadays most of my work is either in a classroom via courses like the speed awareness courses, UK familiarisation, Advanced driver training, Fleet training or the Approved Driving Instructor (ADI) part 2 and 3 training (instructors examination) as so many people find they need more help on stage 3 than most of the other stages and find that many training companies under deliver on this stage. 

I also run courses to cover the Standards Check Test preparation, Continual Personal Development for instructors, Advanced Driving Training and pass plus including the teacher of Pass Plus Cymru theory/discussion in class training sessions here in South Wales.

Approved Driving Instructor Licence

I have taught many learner drivers over the years and still continue to teach a few now. I specialise in the very nervous learners or learners/drivers that are finding driving or learning to drive challenging, maybe failing a number of tests, sometimes through nerves or they find that other people have said that they will never be a driver.  I also teach learners with special needs.

Please take a look at our our other instructors below and our testimonials page to see why others recommend us.

Safe driving & have fun

Malcolm has again been here at Coles Driving Academy for many years, Malcolm is a specialist teacher her with us and teaches in an automatic car. Included in this is advanced driving, eco’ driving or manual car when using your own car for training or learning how to drive. He is very thorough in what he does ensuring that the driver fully understands the Driving and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) safe driving for life strategy.

Lisa just like Malcolm teaches in an automatic car, she uses the Ford Fusion for this and also teaches manual car using her Clio, You may have seen it as it stands out from the crowd as its bright white. Lisa again like John is very patient and all the learners like her for her lovely nature and teaching style.



Jason Feista

Jason has been teaching for us for many years now and his experience shines, just like the rest of our instructors he has a very high pass rate but not only high he does like ensuring that the test marking sheet remains clean (zero faults). He pays attention to detail and again just like the other instructors has a very high grade as you would imagine from the above. Jason is currently teaching in the Ford Fiesta, which looks very sporty and smart with its blacked out rear windows.
