In The Seat With…..


Over the next few weeks we’re throwing the spotlight on to our team of MINT Driving Instructors.

This week, we caught up with our automatic Instructor Shakira who is based in Derby.

Let us introduce ourselves

About Shakira

I have been driving for 16 years and my background has been logistics and part of that was assessing driving skills so I thought I would adapt my skills and help teach people to drive.

I feel it is very rewarding to see people’s confidence grow and when they pass their test it gives them their independence. I feel I have helped give students a lesson for life.

I chose automatic as I prefer to drive automatic and it takes a huge chunk out of the learning with gear changes and finding the biting point so if you feel I can help you, please get in touch.
