Here at Purple Driving Academy, we strive to provide excellence in driver training for 

Learner Drivers and Driving Instructors

 To achieve that requires our investment into the best continued professional development available.

We are firm believers that any driving school is only as good as the team behind it and that is why we develop people who are passionate about road safety!

Samantha Taylor ADI


"Knowing that everyone comes from their own stage of development, I work with trainee instructors and those wanting to improve their skills.  

Believing that learning comes from within, I involve you in every decision on how you like to learn, creating empowered  instructors, resulting in positive performance, motivating you to influence the drivers of tomorrow.

I have a passion for road safety and delivering excellent training  and so I commit to investing in myself and delivering the very latest in driver training techniques.

I am proud to be a registered trainer with the Tri-Coaching Partnership and deliver the 'TCIT' instructor training package which has been developed in line with the 'Standards for Driver and Rider Training', the BTEC4 in Coaching for Driver Development and aCCelerate.

In addition to my driving qualifications, I am also a holistic therapist specialising in coaching using NLP and Hypnotherapy, which are extremely helpful in helping the nervous driver to overcome anxiety behind the wheel.

"Coming from a nurturing background with a Degree in nursing for over the last decade, people are my passion:  how they work, what their needs are and just what it is that makes them tick. 

Having managed many diverse environments, I know what it takes to grow successful teams made up of individuals, where everyone has a voice!  

Mentoring/coaching others in becoming the best they can be is my focus and happy place.

I am currently enrolled on the BTEC4 in coaching and driver development as my CPD amongst continually evaluating and developing skills to help you achieve success.

Boosting others confidence, providing a safe space for learning to take place is my ongoing goal and promise to you, along with having many giggles along the way.

During the recent Covid lockdown, I have invested time supporting the Ministry Of Defence  to train personnel from the Army, RAF and Royal Marines to attain a category B licence.

I consider myself relaxed in nature so putting that together with a client centred approach to learning will allow you to be at ease and in control of your future, resulting in making you a safer driver for life."
