Learner driver training

Anyone who has a provisional licence, regardless of whether you are a complete beginner or have failed a test, I can help you achieve your full driving licence.  I use the National Standards for driving as a basis for teaching and will tailor your learning to drive experience to you, especially important if you have driven before.

Qualified driver training

Further training for newly qualified drivers is mentioned below under Pass Plus and motorway but I often do additional training for people who may have passed a while ago.  It may be you have taken a break from driving and you want to brush up on your skills or you would like help in regaining your confidence or in a particular area.  Please feel free to contact me to discuss your requirements and we can create a personalised plan to develop your driving.

Pass Plus

Pass Plus is a course designed to follow on from what people learn before taking their test.  It can help you to further develop your skills and a positive driving style which will help reduce your risk of being involved in an accident.

It is a course covering 6 modules, including motorway and night driving, and there is no test to take at the end, I assess your driving throughout and once you have reached the required standard you’ve passed!  There is a minimum of 6 hours tuition and I offer this whole course for £170.  Anyone you passed their test with me can save an extra £10.

Did you know?

  • New drivers are more likely to have an accident within 2 years of passing their test than at any other time.
  • 2 people under 25 die in crashes every day in the UK.
  • You can save money on your insurance with a Pass Plus certificate (with selected insurers).

Motorway lessons

If you feel that the Pass Plus course isn’t for you once you have passed your test we are able to train on motorways.  Most people find a 3 hour session is sufficient practice as we can usually get to Bristol and back.  Don’t forget motorway driving is the only type of road that I cannot train you on before you take your driving test.  Statistically they are the safest roads but can be quite scary when driving on your own for the first time.

Disabled driver tuition

Whether you are a novice or returning to driving after an illness or injury I am able to offer you support with driving whether or not you need an adapted vehicle.  I am also able to train deaf people and those with learning disabilities or additional needs such as autism and dyslexia.  I have undertaken training through the Queen Elizabeth Foundation, Motability and the Driving Instructor’s Association to learn about various adaptations, driving with different conditions and the legal aspects that need to be considered.  I have a standard manual tuition vehicle so anyone that does not require adaptations can be accommodated using my tuition car.  Unfortunately I do not have an adapted vehicle but I am able to offer training in your own adapted car – please contact me to discuss your needs.  I have helped people with a variety of conditions and am aware of the considerations that need to be made if you are a disabled driver.  As long as the Driver and Vehicle Licencing Agency (DVLA) have deemed you fit to drive I am able to support you with driving in whatever way I can.  I can be flexible with lessons as required and am able to visit you prior to starting lessons if you would like to discuss anything further.
