About Miles Ahead
Miles Ahead is a local driving school providing driving lessons to students of all ages and abilities in Cardiff, Penarth, Barry and the Vale of Glamorgan. Driven by a passion for road safety and excellence in driver education, we offer modern, student-centred training - you’ll be actively engaged in the learning process, you’ll learn the way you want to and at a pace that you’re comfortable with. We have the latest technology and driver training apps at hand to make your learning experience more interactive and more effective.
Meet the Trainer
Paul Conibear is a fully qualified DVSA Approved Driving Instructor with 12 years experience working with local and national driving schools and now as owner and trainer at Miles Ahead. Fully committed to the DVSA’s voluntary CPD scheme and their ADI Code of Practice, Paul trains regularly with some of the industry’s leading coaches and holds the highest available DVSA Standards Check grade (only around 20% of driving instructors have achieved this grade). Find out more about Instructor Grades.
Over the years Paul has coached hundreds of pupils through to success in the driving test and beyond. Prior to becoming a driving instructor, he had a successful career in further and higher education and so knows his stuff when it comes to developing people and getting the best out of his students.
Our core syllabus covers everything you need to comfortably pass a driving test. It’s not compulsory, but we also like to develop other skills that many instructors don’t typically include as they’re not required for test. It won’t take any longer to learn these extras, as many of them can be quietly slipped in whilst you’re working through the core topics. Our thinking is that the more experience you get under professional guidance the more competent you will become in the longer term.
We appreciate that learning to drive can be a daunting experience, so we guarantee you a respectful, relaxed and safe environment to make your training as enjoyable and stress-free as possible. We’ll also give you all the advice and support you need to progress as fast as you possibly can. We offer a range of driving courses to suit your individual needs, with flexible working hours, and are available for evening and weekend sessions. We can arrange lessons to pick you up from school, college, home or work, whatever suits you. We pride ourselves on delivering the best possible customer service at very competitive prices.
Training is provided in a modern, fully maintained Renault Clio with manual transmission and dual controls. It’s comfortable, easy to drive, and all our students love it.
