Why learn to drive with us?

"Before I started my driving lessons with Alan, I had someone else, who I didn't really learn anything from. When I started with Alan, he taught me how to pull away very easily! He makes you feel comfortable when you're driving. He teaches you all the manoeuvres in a simple way so they're very easy and quick to learn" - Nicola Skeels, Hockley

See Alan's Qualifications and experience >>

We are a reliable and professional local driving school.

Our reputation is very important, especially in the local area, as we rely on recommendations from satisfied customers, so we will always do our utmost to make your learning experience enjoyable and productive.


You get to know your DSA Approved Driving Instructor before booking your lessons.

The advantage of choosing a local driving school like us is that you are able to find out all you need to know about us, through this website, before you book your driving lessons. Especially about the instructor that you are actually booking the lessons with. If you book with us this will be Alan.


Usually multi-car driving schools are just booking agencies!

Whereas if you book with multi-car driving schools you will know nothing about the qualifications or experience of your driving instructor until they arrive on your doorstep. And although there is some peace of mind in booking with what is seen to be a large organisation, multi-car driving schools are usually just booking agencies for self-employed driving instructors.  See more...

"Alan is a friendly and relaxed instructor. You can go at your own pace and concentrate on your weaknesses and improve your strengths. Alan is very well prepared and lessons are structured with variety" - Nicola Avert, Ashingdon


We teach you to drive, not just pass your test!

When you learn to drive with us we teach you all the things that we feel are necessary for you to become a safe, and competent driver; so that you will be confident to drive anywhere once you have passed your test. We will include: 70mph roads, busy roundabouts, and driving out of the locality to towns such as Basildon, Brentwood, and Chelmsford. Unlike some schools we do not just keep you in the local area.

"Alan is calm, patient, reliable, good at explaining things and easy to talk to." - Karen Benton, Rayleigh.
