Preparing you for a lifetime of driving

I'm a Grade A independent driving instructor based in Kingsteignton, Devon who provides learner and qualified driver training, Pass Plus and specialises in disabled driver training in an adapted automatic car.


Please note that I am fully booked for the foreseeable future and unlikely to be able to take on any new customers until 2023. I am aware that this is likely too long a wait for most people. I apologise for the delay, but there are only so many hours in a week! If you require a specialist instructor like myself, then please contact me using the form below to be added to my waiting list. Alternatively, there are many instructors in the local area, although most also have waiting lists and some have closed their lists. Any timescales will be affected should there be future lockdowns.

Thank you for bearing with me during this difficult time, Emma

Driving Lesson


Since 2015 I have been specialising in training people with disabilities, mainly learning disabilities. I have undertaken training with Cornwall Mobility, QEF, Motability and DIA to improve my knowledge and skills in this area. I have an adapted automatic Honda Jazz, please contact me to discuss your requirements.

Night driving


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 anyone who passed their test with me will save £10.

Road markings


I am able to offer all my customers access to Driving Test Success to help you fully prepare for the multiple choice questions and hazard perception videos. I can monitor your progress and offer tailored support.



No matter at what age you are learning to drive the process can at times be fun, stressful, exciting, scary and everything in between.  It’s important to remember that different people learn at different rates and there are bound to be some parts of learning to drive that you find easier than others.

24th June 2021

Please be aware that I have a considerable waiting list. For anyone not already on my waiting list, it is likely to be a minimum of 18 months before I can get you started. If you do not require a specialist instructor like myself, I would recommend trying other local instructors. I am sorry for the delay and wish I could help more people, but there are only so many hours in the day! Repeated lockdowns and the delay with driving tests has caused this unprecedented backlog. If you are looking to learn to drive in the next couple of years, please contact me to be added to my waiting list. This will be for automatic lessons only as I am stopping manual lessons soon.

Thanks for your understanding.


8th March 2021

I'm not booking any lessons until after I've received confirmation on 5th April that lockdown restrictions will be relaxed as proposed for step 2. If everything goes ahead, lessons can resume from 12th April along with theory tests. Practical tests would resume on 22nd April. Please follow my social media for the latest information about dates.

Getting bored stuck at home? Need to learn your theory? Why not book one of my virtual theory sessions?

They are one to one and personalised, I'll help you learn however you find works best for you.

Sessions are conducted over Skype so you can see me (and one of my cats may make an appearance!) Sessions are £10 per half hour, can be as long as you like and as often as you like. I can be flexible on days and times. This is open to everyone.

Alternatively, I can offer free of charge online theory training through Driving Test Success for all of my customers and anyone on my waiting list for lessons.


I’d love to hear from you! Feel free to contact me with questions or to discuss booking lessons.
