Welcome to The Stigs World – Before I start Blogging, I just want to make a few things clear and I get asked this all the time. Am I The Stig? The simple answer to this is “No”. Nor am I related to him or nor have I worked with him. I’ve never even met Jeremy Clarkson off the BBC1 programme Top Gear. Well that show has been axed now anyway. What I do is write honest reviews about driving schools, so for example, you’ll see my my review about driving schools in Rochester is based on DCJ Driver Training – This particular article is about females working within the driving instructor industry and discusses any perils or pit falls. Othe articles drill-down into the way they operate their business amongst other things.
I was lucky enough to bump into Shaun who is the owner operator of Shaun’s Driving School when I was on my travels around the South of England visiting family. Well I say I was lucky, it wasn’t coincidence, more engineered. I knew I was going to a town called Andover in Hampshire to catch up with friends I’d met when in Greece last year so I decided to turn it into a busman’s holiday and try to catch up with one of the driving schools in Andover. A little bit of work whilst on holiday never hurt anybody right!
I purposely arrived in Andover a few hours earlier than scheduled to meet up with some friends so I can meet up with Shaun. I met him just outside the council offices in Andover right next to a coffee shop. We were friends on Facebook so I knew what he looked like so there was no problem me awkwardly asking strangers if their name was Shaun. Anyway, we got the coffee’s in and I started to interview Shaun.
