About the Author

Martin Caswell grew up in the coastal village of Boscastle in Cornwall. Aged 23, he went to London to train with British School of Motoring (BSM) to become a qualified Government Approved Driving Instructor. The plan, back in August 1974, was to teach for a couple of years. One of the schools he worked for was a 'Driver Education Centre' that had an off-road circuit to teach under-17s car control so by the time they reached 17 they had great car control. We also used to teach skid-control to motor-racing students from the Brands Hatch Motor Racing Stables, IAM groups, London Ambulance Service, Metropolitan Police, and even anti-hijack techniques to the American Embassy staff. This involved reversing onto a skid-pan at high speed and spinning the car around 180 degrees then speeding off in the opposite direction. He also used to race saloon cars (Shellsport Ford Escort Mexicos) at Brands Hatch too. Martin moved to Belfast in the late 1970s and taught there for around 18 months. Then returned to BSM Kensington High Street, London and started his own driving school 'Acclaim Motor School' in 1981. Within two years he had four cars on the road covering the London area. When he met his wife he moved out of London and moved his driving school to Berkshire. The rest, as they say, is history!
