By my own pupils
It is my intention that as this website develops further it will become increasingly useful to my pupils as a reminder of issues that we have discussed while on driving lessons.
Nothing on this website should be seen as a 'tutorial' or a procedure which can be followed blindly without further thought. Your path through life will not be a straight line and the road network certainly is not. Throughout your driving lessons we have been discussing driving related issues, all of which have to be applied and adapted to each situation in turn.

It has and continues to take time and effort (mine alone) to expand upon this content.
I am happy to help you out.
Thank you for returning the favour.
People generally understand why I bother with a website and develop it in the way that I am but I am asked about the associated media that I run alongside it.
As it happens I am not the only person in the world that has good ideas, and websites are not the only method of marketing a business to potential customers. In the days before the internet if you wanted to contact a few different driving schools you had to use the Yellow Pages directory, and every house had one by the house phone. The market for potential customers has not changed but the number of places that they can look online certainly has. Different media therefore bring their individual benefits and below I shall explain what I use and why.
The Findley's Driving School FaceBook page is quite a new addition to my online content.
A FaceBook page is a shop window for social media users and I have been slow to take this opportunity. I update with fresh content that is driving, motoring and safety related because I have seen so many that are simply a list of pictures of smiling faces holding pass certificates. Those are great, I just think that more can be done.
The Findley's Driving School Blog is a great place for me to share thoughts and observations that would not require their own specific page on this website. i quite like blogging because it is easy to do and much less formal than coding a web page.
Instagram is the perfect place to put that long list of pictures of happy faces holding theirpractical driving test pass certificates. My Instagram account can be seen here if you would like to see some smiley people.
Twitter is a micro-blogging platform and great for picking up thoughts that others are sharing. My Findley's Driving School Twitter account is frequently used both to post my thoughts in short form and to source content that others are sharing.
My LinkedIn page
Driving instructors network just like everyone else and I do find it interesting to view potential professional opportunities on my LinkedIn page as they arise.
Does not exist yet, but it will when I have further developed this website and its existing social media support.
