Our Driving Lessons
Tailored to suit your requirements
There is a range of driving lessons and courses to suit your current needs, from an assessment lesson, a refresher course, one week quick start module, a confidence booster, automatic familiarisation lesson, parking master class or a block of lessons to get you ready for the driving test or Pass Plus once you have passed.
Pick the one that suits you from the list and see below for more details.
This is the usual place for most learner drivers to begin, when you pass your driving test in a manual car or van you are then able to drive any vehicle manual or automatic with no restrictions in the same category.
All aspects of driving are covered when you are learning to drive and pass your test including basic car maintenance, filling up with petrol etc.
My philosophy is that you enjoy your lessons and therefore I create a calm environment in which you can learn with confidence.
You will always get One to One tuition. Each student is an individual and the instruction is tailored to meet each person’s character and needs.
This is where some learners prefer to start, as there are no gears to worry about, there is not the complication of stalling when starting or stopping, or being in the wrong gear.
If this option is taken when you pass your driving test you will only be able to drive a car with an automatic gearbox.
This option is good for people who may have certain medical conditions, or who don’t want the hassle of gears. When this option is taken most pupils wonder why people need gears in the first place.
For people who only want motorway tuition as an add on to their present skills.
Some of the aspects we cover include:
We do short courses on how to park effectively, between cars and in car parks.
Parallel parking – words that strike fear and dread into most drivers. It does not have to be that way! We can show you a simple way to Parallel Park with confidence in less than an hour.

For people who are returning to driving after a break.
Most people who return to driving after a break can benefit from taking a refresher course, most have enough skills to drive well, they just lack the confidence to get back in a car on their own. That’s where we come in. We will assess your needs and work on areas where you need a boost, showing you tips and strategies to speed up the process, gaining that all important edge ‘confidence’.
For some returning to the road poses new challenges which include:
Increased Levels of Traffic
New Road Layouts
New Road Signs
