1st 4 Driving Cornwall was set up by Natalie Hosking and Louise Nichols, two young instructors who qualified straight out of University and, having started their careers at one of the large franchises, wanted to set up a school that delivered on its promises and really did put the pupil first. Natalie says;
We both have very calm and patient manners and have a real empathy with our learners, we know what its like to learn
1st 4 Driving Cornwall is an associate of 1st 4 Driving LTD, a driving school support and management service created by Dave Foster MA Dip.DI.
Dave is one of the UK’s most qualified driving instructors, one of just a handful of individuals to have completed an MA (Master’s Degree) and Dip.DI (Diploma in Driving Instruction) in driving education. Not only that, he has a vast array of industry experience; consulting for some of the biggest franchises in the country, being a question writer and examiner for driving trainer examination bodies, editing and updating various manuals and being published in numerous driver training magazines. When it comes to driving instruction, Dave literally wrote the book. A few years ago, Dave moved away from the large companies as he felt they were refusing to adapt to a changing environment and set up 1st 4 Driving, so he could share his knowledge, expertise, and above all passion for driver education with associate schools. Wherever possible Dave has either overseen or actively completed the ADI training for instructors at his associate schools to ensure that association with 1st 4 Driving can be seen as a guarantee of quality and competence.
