Here's a quick look back at some of the high spots for Cleaway Driver Training over the last five years!
Clearway Driver Training was founded by Paul Kirkpatrick DSA ADI, who after a spell working with the UK's largest driving school BSM, decided to start his own company along with his partner, Louise Bartlett.
On 15th November 2004, Clearway Driver Training commenced business.
Paul offered driving lessons in a very snazzy black Mitsubishi Colt with yellow stripes. The very contemporary look of the Colt was an instant hit with local learner drivers!
By November 2006, Paul could no longer keep up with the demand for driving lessons and another experienced driving instructor joined the company.
Peter Fearon came to Clearway from the AA Driving School, having previously worked for BSM. Peter was instantly popular and fitted in perfectly, sharing the company ethos and obligatory sense of humour!
By this time, Paul had changed his vehicle and both Paul and Peter were now using identical black Skoda Fabia vRS's!
In April 2007, Clearway Driver Training were approached by the Slough Observer Newspaper who wanted to know how well someone who passed their driving test several years previously would do if they had to take their test again. Paul met up with their reporter Andy Stiff for a mock driving test and the results can be seen in the article "One L of a time"!
In November 2007, Clearway Driver Training were delighted to welcome another instructor to the company when Robert White joined. Rob was previously with Safeway UK and when he arrived, Cleaway expanded the areas they covered to include Bracknell and Wokingham.
