We get asked a lot;

How many lessons will I need?

The national average according to the Driving standards agency is 45 hours of lessons, plus 22 hours of private practising. So we normally find that the average is 40-50 hours of lessons until someone is ready for their driving test, but remember this is an average and everyone is different. our lessons are structured to suit the individual. We have no desire to keep a customer paying for lessons that they don’t need. Our aim is to get to our students ready for their test as quickly as possible. We are proud of our good reputation we have built up in the community.

What are your prices?

Many driving schools hide their prices or have a complicated pricing structure.

You will find our prices are easy to understand and are a set rate.

We don’t claim to offer the cheapest driving lessons, but our aims are to offer value for money and effective teaching tailor-made to the individual. Click here to see our current price list.

Do you mostly teach 17 year olds?

Far from it, no matter what stage of life, its never too late to take up the challenge of learning to drive. Its our pleasure to teach all age ranges.

Can’t Thank him enough and would thoroughly recommend to anyone!!!

April- Jim is a brilliant instructor – very patient and calm, and really makes you feel at ease. Very professional and reliable. He also has some fool-proof techniques for manoeuvres which really helped my accuracy in parallel parking and reverse parking. I passed my test on the first try and would highly recommend him to anyone looking for lessons.

Amy-Fantastic driving school and fantastic instructor. Jim is patient and professional and uses some brilliant techniques to help you learn to drive confidently and pass your test, he never gave up on me and I’m so happy to have passed my test, thank you Jim couldn’t have done it without you! Wouldn’t recommend any other driving school.

Sharna-I can’t recommend Jim highly enough. Here’s my story. Three months ago I decided to get behind the wheel again after not driven for 22 years ! I was very nervous, scared but excited & determined, but I needn’t of worried as Jim was incredibly patient & he really taught me a lot in the refresher lessons I had. We covered everything from the basics, driving along the A46, dark country roads, driving through town & reverse parking etc. I am now the proud owner of a little car of my own, something I never thought would happen ! If anyone is thinking of refresher lessons then contact Jim, he’s awesome ( he doesn’t shout or lose his temper either ) x
