Meet The Team
Kim Gibson - Owner
My name is Kim Gibson and I run Thumbs Up Driver Training. I got my taste for teaching when I lived abroad and spent some time teaching English to students of all ages in a small English school. After some thought I decided to combine my love of driving with teaching to become a driving instructor and since qualifying I’ve never looked back. I get immense satisfaction helping people to over come nerves, to believe in themselves and achieve their full licence.
Over the years as a driver trainer I have aimed to develop my knowledge and gain further qualifications. As well as having a certificate in Education and Training I also have a qualification in Coaching for Driver Development and am a qualified NVQ Assessor. To ensure my learners gain the best possible learning experience I keep myself updated with changes within the industry as well as going on regular CPD courses to learn subjects such as coping strategies to help learners with nerves and anxiety. I aim to deliver learner centred lessons to ensure the maximum benefit is gained from each lesson.
