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.
