Aye Aye Fit like?
I’m Alan, Inverurie’s most newly appointment Approved Driving Instructor, having qualified in June 2017.
Previous to that, I worked as a lorry driver, gaining both my class 1 and class 2 licenses in 2004. I have been brought up with lorries since birth but that’s a story for another time.
From the years 2007-2015 I worked offshore on various Oil Rigs. However due to the downturn I decided to chase a dream of mine by starting up my own business as a Driving Instructor.
I first looked into this in 2002 when I graduated from University, but at the time aged 22, I felt I was too young and lacked enough experience to do this properly. Fifteen years on, I feel now is the right time.
I have been married to Lynsey since 2010. We have two beautiful girls Orla (6) and Scarlett (4). We moved out to Inverurie in 2011, having lived in the bright lights of Aberdeen since our Uni days. I hail from a small village called Sandend, situated on the Moray Firth between Portsoy and Cullen.
In my spare time I have had a seasons ticket at Pittodrie since I was at school, seeing some good times, some bad times and most recently more good times. I also enjoy a round of Golf playing at Newmachar off a handicap of 12. Most of my spare time is spent with my girls who like most families enjoy a day out whenever possible.
I would like to finish off by saying I am a patient, friendly, easy going guy with a wide variety of social skills which will make people feel comfortable around and at ease with. At 37 I feel young at heart and will get on well with the youngsters who have turned 17 and to other learners nearer my age. Lessons will be conducted to suit each individuals needs and I will never put anyone in a situation they are not comfortable with.
