Why learn to drive with us, and our great value prices?

"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

"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

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

Alan has been a full-time professional Driving Standards Agency (Government) Approved Driving Instructor (DSA ADI) since 1984. In the meantime he has accrued more than 20,000 hours learner driver teaching experience, and a degree in education and combined sciences.

Whereas most instructors don't progress beyond the basic ADI qualification, Alan has also had licences for: buses, coaches, articulated HGVs, and motorcycles. And in addition passed the RoSPA Advanced driving test (at Gold grade twice), the DIA Advanced driving test, The IAM Advanced driving test, the Cardington Special Test for Driving Instructors at the DVSA examiner training centre at Cardington in Bedfordshire, and was on the DSA Fleet Driver Trainer Register.

This enables him to teach to the highest standard, and offer the very best service to his pupils.

Driving test assessments:
We are able to do an independent driving test assessment of your driving in accordance with our mock test marking procedures. On your assessment we will simulate a real driving test as much as possible. This means that you will drive on a current or recent DSA designed driving test route, under full test conditions.

You will receive no assistance with your driving during the assessment so that we can give you a full appraisal of your strengths and weakness. At the end you will receive a detailed debriefing, with full explanations of anything that you may have done incorrectly, and with advice as to how you can improve.

Financially this can save you a lot of money in comparison to "having a go" at a DSA test just to see if you can pass.

We can do this assessment for you in complete confidence if you require. Your regular instructor will not be informed by us. There is no commitment, and we will not expect you to take any further lessons with us.
