Meet Your BTEC Level 4 Qualified Coach: Steve

I'm Steve, DVSA approved driving instructor with BTEC Level 3 & 4 qualifications in coaching for driver development.

Welcome to Steve Chaplin Driving School! I am a DVSA approved driving instructor with BTEC Level 3 and 4 qualifications in coaching for driver development. As a driving instructor, I understand the importance of continuing professional development. To provide my pupils with the best chance of becoming safe and responsible drivers, I continuously improve my skills and knowledge.

In addition to being a DVSA approved driving instructor, I have also obtained the BTEC Level 3 Advanced Award in Coaching for Driver Development and the Pearson-accredited BTEC Level 4 Professional Award in Coaching for Driver Development. These qualifications are industry-leading and enable me to adopt a client-centered approach with my customers.

At my driving school, I prioritise client-centered learning or coaching. This approach raises awareness and builds responsibility so that you can learn how your personality impacts your driving behaviour. Through coaching, you can develop skills to manage your behaviour safely and become a responsible driver. My goal is to empower you to develop self-evaluation skills and take ownership of your driving once you are qualified.

"If I could give this human more than 5 stars I'd give him infinite stars. I have struggled for many many* years to find a driving instructor that I could feel comfortable with. There has been more than a few and I just couldn't stick with them. I found Steve Chaplins driving school, he was different to the rest, with a massive sense of actual care, like I wasn't just another on the list. I struggle day to day with trust and anxiety but it seemed like that was understood, and it was worked woth not against. After 10+ years of trying, Steve Chaplins Driving school got me through my test, with a pass first time might I add. Absolutely recommend this one, if you have any worries, have tired time and time again or just simply want to pass your test calmly, then this is the one for you. Thank you for getting me through something I'd never thought would happen."

Experience speaks volumes, and Anika Power´s message after passing her driving test resonates deeply with the impact of coaching techniques. As she confidently maneuvered through challenging situations, she found herself reflecting on her newfound independence and the invaluable coaching approach of myself. Let me share Anika´s inspiring words that beautifully illustrate the significance of coaching techniques even after passing the test…

“I managed to clip the curb on a bend in the car, not once but twice, and thought to myself, “what would Steve say?” I ended up coaching myself on how it happened because Steve has such a lovely coaching style and approach to his driving lessons, which I think is very unique.” – Anika Power
