My name is Mike Fisher.
I am a long time driving instructor, and I own Mike Fisher’s Driving School.
I have also spent many years as a Health and Safety Instructor.
In this blog, I hope to pass along some of the safety tips and driving tips and techniques that I have learned over the years as a Health and Safety Instructor, while driving, and training driving students.
Please read and send me any feedback or questions via the site contact form.
