Hello, my name is Pierluigi, or PJ to my friends, as most people find Pierluigi is a bit of a mouthful.
I grew up in Rome, which taught me how NOT to drive, and moved in this country in 1993.
Before becoming a driving instructor I worked in the Airline industry for over 20 years, covering many different operation roles including check-in, ticketing, dispatching and duty manager.
Due to my love of driving and interacting with people, I always wanted to become a driving instructor,
I enjoy training, coaching and sharing experience with my pupils. Teaching a life skill is rewarding to me and seeing my pupils progress through the learning process, and ultimately passing their driving test makes me smile.
Outside of work, I have many different interests. Apart from spending time with my lovely family, I love football, and I'm an FA licensed football coach for Merstham FC. I also enjoy outdoor running, cycling and I am pretty good with food- as long as it is Italian! So far as cars are concerned, when I'm not in my training car, I am the proud owner of a vintage 1974 Fiat 500 (or Cinquecento), and I love to ride in it on a sunny Sunday morning.

"The first time I did my driving lessons was tough, it meant trying to find a good instructor who’s teaches well and really gives you the time and patience because you don’t want your money to go to waste. The first words that come to mind when you are with PJ is patience, passion and dedication. He will notice your weak points and encourage you to self learn these errors and reflect on how you can do better, he will go above and beyond to prioritise your lessons and will be willing to make himself flexible because he will trust in you before you trust your own driving and suddenly you have a newfound confidence on the road. I highly recommend this driving school and I strongly advise you that you get PJ as an instructor because your money, time and most importantly your road safety will be in great hands."
