About Us

My name is Stephen Scott, I am experienced and qualified to provide you with the excellent service you require. I count myself to be very lucky in life having had 15 years experience working in the engineering industry then taking an incredible decision to retrain as an Approved Driving Instructor (A.D.I).

I found that it was more than just a new career choice. It was a unique opportunity to teach a life skill to so many people, and the feeling of accomplishment when they pass their driving test is second to none. It gives me great pleasure to see that smile on a pupil’s face as they receive their driving licence from the examiner.

I trained as an A.D.I with BSM (British school of motoring) Once qualified I worked as a B.S.M instructor for over 4 years. After this time, and after many successful test passes, I decided it was time to leave and set-up my own driving school.

I chose to call the driving school ALPHA (Being the first letter of the Greek alphabet. Alpha is often used in terms of "first", in other words "the best").

I thought this best described how I wanted my driving school to be presented and also how I want my pupils to feel.

Driving ALPHA forward:

As the popularity of the services offered increased, it became apparent that I needed to get more cars on the road. I have now added extra Driving instructors to the business allowing us to give you more choice in what you need to get you through your driving test. We now have both male and female instructors which gives us more days and times to book you a lesson slot that suits your availability.

When it comes to teaching I am a patient and very reliable instructor and I make it my main priority to ensure that all my pupil’s needs and requirements are met successfully.

There is so much more to driving when you learn with a professional, qualified and experienced instructor.
