Approved Driving Instructor

Car: Nissan Leaf (Automatic, Electric)


Hello and thanks for checking out our site. I’m Gary, I’m a Driving Instructor and owner of the company. I started Your Pass in 2012. 

I qualified as an instructor in 2010, a role I wanted to do since I had my very own first ever driving lesson on my 17th birthday….many moons ago! Before doing this I worked in the banking industry in Edinburgh as a Senior Analyst for 7 years.

As well as being out in the car on lessons I spend a bit of time in the office running the business, updating the website, managing instructor’s diaries, producing the YouTube videos on our channel (check them out if you haven’t already done so –

I’m very proud of and fortunate to have the instructors that make up my team. I like to try and get together every month or so on a one to one basis with my instructors and we do enjoy the occasional ‘business team meeting’ in the pub when we get the chance!

When I’m not at work I’m spending quality time with my wife Donna and my son Cody.
