Belvedere Driving School is the premiere driving
school for the Burnley and Pendle area, including
Colne, Nelson, Brierfield, Barrowford, Padiham,
Fence, Higham and surrounding areas specialising in
developing safer drivers for life.

Welcome to Belvedere School of Motoring, an independent family-run driving school serving the local community for over forty years working with drivers aged between 17 (16 if in receipt of higher rate Disability Living Allowance) to well over 70!  Belevedere School of Motoring was founded in 1970 by Rose Spencer and the business is now run by her son, Kenneth.  Read more about the history of our business.

More than 1000 people have been helped to pass their test since the business began including driving instructors as well as pupils.

Kenneth specialises in teaching mature students who prefer driving automatic cars as well as students who have been unsuccessful in the past at passing their driving tests with other instructors.  Kenneth’s teaching methods have achieved great results by helping drivers regain their confidence or pass their test after several failed attempts.

Our oldest driver was 90!  She wanted an assessment to see if her driving was still up to standard after a break – and it was – she took a few more lessons to boost her confidence.

Having a good match between the pupil and their instructor makes learning much easier.  An instructor’s method of teaching or their communication skills need to be in tune with the pupil’s needs.

Our aim is to assess the pupil’s needs and requirements and use methods that achieve the greatest results during the learning experience.   Kenneth continually updates his skills to better serve his students.

We provide quality tuition that keeps pace with modern teaching methods.  We take into account your needs and preferences, teaching you in the way you learn best.   This shortens the learning curve and builds trust, confidence and improves your decision making so that you become a safer, more confident driver before and after passing the driving test.

Kenneth is continually updating his skills to better serve his students.  He is also a member of the Driving Instructors Association, the Motor Schools Association and the Federation of Small Businesses.

Kenneth is also approved to deliver Pass Plus to Motability drivers subject to qualification criteria.

Kenneth has the following qualifications:

  • DSA Grade 6 instructor (in the top 6% of instructors in the country)
  • DSA registered Fleet Trainer
  • A1 Assessor
  • NVQ level 3 in driving instruction
  • Brake Ambassador
  • Rospa Silver award.
