About Chicane School of Motoring
Meet our Driving Instructors
Chicane's founder, David Walkley, has been a fully qualified Approved Driving Instructor (ADI) since December 2004 (ADI number: 287184). He began his journey as a driving instructor with the British School of Motoring (BSM) before setting up Chicane School of Motoring in 2010.
David knows the local area very well, having lived in West Wickham and Beckenham all his life. He studied for a HND in photography at North East Surrey College of Technology (NESCOT) and initially worked in digital printing. However, he has always had a love for driving (he commuted daily to NESCOT, near Epsom, as a student) and decided on a change of direction to become a driving instructor, qualifying in December 2004.
As well as his ADI qualifications, David invests in his Continued Professional Development and passed the Institute of Advanced Motorists' advanced driving test in 2009. He passed the RoSPA (Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents) advanced driving test in 2011, which is the highest civilian driving test you can take, and has held the Gold level since 2014.
When not behind the wheel, David still enjoys photography. He also loves ballroom dancing and he plays table tennis in the Sevenoaks League.
Roy Bridewell joined Chicane in 2018 and has been a fully qualified Approved Driving Instructor (ADI) since September 2005.
He also began his instructor career with the British School of Motoring (BSM) before going independent for several years and then moving to the AA School of Motoring in July 2014.
Born in Croydon, Roy has lived and worked all his life in the Bromley, Beckenham and West Wickham areas, which he knows well.
When not teaching people to drive, Roy loves football and going to gigs.
