Steve Cocks B.Sc.

Steve qualified as an ADI in October 1995, and is a Founding Director of Drivex (and The Way Ahead). He attained entry on to the ORDIT register for all three parts of the ADI qualifying process in 2006, and is an experienced DSA registered Fleet Instructor. Steve is responsible for delivering a whole range of in-vehicle training, instructor training, developing driver risk assessment programs, as well as representing Drivex at various events around the country.

Steve has always had an interest in cars and before entering the world of driver training obtained a degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering at Aston University in Birmingham through a sponsorship with Jaguar Cars. He then went on to work as a Development Engineer with Jaguar at their headquarters in Coventry. 

This time at Jaguar had a lasting impression and Steve is still involved with the marque today; he is currently the Jaguar XE Forum Co-ordinator for the Jaguar Enthusiasts Club.





Roger Spaven

Roger qualified as an ADI in May 2001 and joined The Way Ahead in 2002. He has been involved with Drivex from the start. Roger entered the ORDIT register for all three parts of the qualifying process in October 2008, is an experienced DSA registered Fleet Instructor, holds the coveted DIAmond Special Test and is a qualified Security and Protection Driver. In addition, Roger also holds Category C LGV. Along with Steve, Roger is also responsible for delivering the bulk of Drivex’s in-vehicle training, instructor training, risk assessments and represents the company at events across the U.K.

Originally a Civil Engineer by trade, specialising in major road resurfacing projects, Roger has always held a passionate interest in cars and driving. He has owned many different types of vehicle during his driving life, and this love of all things automotive led to a natural progression towards becoming a driving instructor.
