Colin Orton Driving Instructor

Colin Orton

Born in Sutton Coldfield in the West Midlands, I have lived in Ceredigion for over 25 years.

Whilst serving in the Royal Air Force at St Athan near Cardiff, I was a driving instructor of both cars and lorries for military personnel. I hold driving licenses to drive all road vehicles from motorbikes to 44 ton articulated lorries as well as school buses and coaches - in fact anything except a steam roller! Now I live in Aberystwyth and have my own driving instruction business.

Lessons are in a new Vauxhall Corsa and are on a one to one basis. With a patient and friendly approach, I get results by working on your confidence and helping you to understand how to read the road. If you have been told to contact the RED Driving Instructor in Aberystwyth, you should know that I started my practice with RED in 2011 before branching out on my own in 2014. So you may have found the person you were looking for.

I am a Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) approved instructor, qualified as an ADI to give instruction. For your peace of mind I am CRB checked.
