Welcome to Fantoni Driving School!
My name is Dan Fantoni, Principle driving instructor at Fantoni Driving School. I’ve always enjoyed driving, starting with sixth form road trips, to now enjoying trips around the Yorkshire countryside with my young family. and It is this enjoyment and in helping others reaching their goals, that led me to becoming an Approved Driving Instructor and setting up Fantoni Driving School in 2008.
Keen to continue my own development and be a step ahead, I have gained a number of non-essential but highly beneficial qualifications which many other instructors have not. I am currently completing a BTEC Level 4 in Coaching for Driver Education through the Tri-Coaching Partnership leading to a Diploma in Driving Instruction from the DIA. This is one of the most advanced driver coaching qualifications available.
Life as a driving instructor is very busy and I enjoy meeting a wide variety of learners from diverse backgrounds and varying levels of experience. It is very satisfying seeing learners achieve the freedom of driving with my help.
With the support of my previous customers, I have built a reputation in the area for being a patient, calm and relatable driving instructor who builds a good rapport and confidence in learner drivers. I offer a wide range of training methods varying from in-car, real-time exercises to iPad-based theory test practice.
Remembering how nervous I was when I first started learning to drive, I am understanding of less confident learners and I help them to overcome those barriers with plenty of positive feedback and confidence-building exercises. Above all, my ethos to learning is use of questioning techniques to help new drivers arrive at their own conclusions, which helps them to retain the knowledge and learn much faster, with the confidence to handle the car and driving conditions safely and with ease.
