Our Driver Training

Driving lessons are usually for a full 60, 90 or 120 minutes and are on a one to one basis. We offer a door-to-door service and are happy to pick you up for your driving lesson from wherever is convenient, be it home, workplace, school or college. Our aim is to provide driving tuition to equip you with all the skills you will need not only to pass your Driving Test but to “DRIVE SAFELY FOR LIFE”

We have access to the latest training aids and manuals to help you with your on road training plus the theory and hazard perception tests. We also provide a comprehensive progress card on your first lesson. Guidance notes on the various topics which we will cover will also be provided as lessons progress. These cover the driving syllabus and follow a structured learning plan. 

We recognise that every pupil is an individual and lessons are tailored to suit individual needs. We always aim to be patient and endeavour to provide the best possible level of tuition. We also like to bring some fun into our lessons.

As part of our pre-test preparation, we usually offer students the opportunity to undergo a mock test. This provides valuable feedback and also prepares students for the more stressful test situation. Feedback from our students is very positive on this part of our service and our analysis suggests that a higher number of first-time test passes occur as a result.

Post-test we aim to follow up on your progress as a new driver and offer a refresher lesson with feedback. This can be undertaken in your car, cover areas of concern and even redress those parking issues!

The Pass Plus course enables the new driver to build on the learning process and in the case of Islanders experience ‘mainland’ driving. The six module course covers urban and rural driving, dual carriageways, motorways, adverse weather and nighttime driving. You will even be able to drive on and off the ferry!

From time to time we receive enquiries from older drivers who wish to refresh their skills and even regain their confidence. As part of this process we are able to offer lessons on dual carriageways and motorways. We particularly enjoy the challenge of training drivers from overseas to work on their existing skills to obtain a UK license. We can also offer post-collision training and cost-saving eco-driving.
