What this Driving School can teach you!
Learn to drive as a skill for life. I will design the training around your needs. Each pupil is an individual and requires to be treated as such. I will not move you on to the next stage of training until you are fully comfortable with it.
Do you have difficulties with roundabouts, parking etc. As a driving instructor I can strengthen the areas you feel vulnerable in using sound planning and good observations to make hazards easier to deal with.
Pass Plus Specialist:
About Pass Plus Pass Plus is an established training course aimed at new drivers. It was designed by the Driving Standards Agency (DSA) with the help of insurers and the driving instruction industry. Statistics show that new drivers are more likely to have an accident in the first two years after passing their test, due to lack of driving experience. Pass Plus builds on your skills and knowledge. It will teach you how to anticipate, plan for and deal with all kinds of hazards, to help you become a more confident driver.

Pass Plus consists of six modules about driving in different conditions:
in all weathers
on rural roads
on dual carriageways
