Learn to drive safely & at your own pace. Excellent pass rates.
Pupil safety is my main priority. Driving is a skill for life and passing the driving test is just the first part of your driving education.
My driving school is based in Chester and covers most CH postcodes. I can pick you up from home, work, school/college or somewhere else convenient if arranged in advance. All lessons are on a one-to-one basis and records are kept of your progress.
PROVISIONAL LICENCE HOLDERS:
I will tailor your driving lessons to your needs whether you want to learn quickly and are committed to putting in the work required to do that safely, or whether you just want a lesson a week until you are confident to take the driving test (although this could take you considerably longer).
You will learn all the manoeuvres required for the driving test as well as learning to drive on a variety of roads, including possible test routes, following the Driving Standards Agency's syllabus.
It's important to study for your theory test as soon as possible because it will help with your driving and you need to have passed this before taking the practical exam. If you need any help with this then just contact me!
Although I am a qualified teacher, you won't feel like you're back at school. You have chosen to learn to drive and are therefore mature enough to take that responsibility (I hope). I try to make my lessons fun so that pupils learn quicker because they don't feel so tense and it makes my job more enjoyable!
I'll fully prepare you for the driving test including explaining the marking system and what is the required standard of driving. You will have mock tests and practise the safety questions as your test date gets closer.
*Don't be taken in by driving instructors or driving schools offering cheap lessons/packages - there's always a catch and you could end up taking far longer to pass therefore forking out a lot more hard earned cash!*
Driving should be safe and enjoyable. It could be your road to freedom, no more relying on lifts, public transport or taxis!
FULL LICENCE HOLDERS:
I also offer driving lessons for those of you who have already passed your test and need some extra sessions as a refresher or to build your confidence.
Sessions can include motorway driving and parking - but lessons are designed around your individual needs, eg parking in a multi storey car park, planning a route, driving to a particular place etc.
No need to spend all that time and money to pass the test and then lose the confidence to drive independently - have a few refresher lessons to make you feel safe to get back behind the wheel and in control.
I am registered to teach Pass Plus which is a 6 hour (min) training course specifically aimed at new drivers, designed by the Driving Standards Agency (DSA) with the help of insurers and the driving instruction industry. Pass Plus will build upon your existing skills and knowledge, it will teach you how to anticipate, plan for and deal with all kinds of hazards, and can help you to become more confident on the roads.
Most major insurance companies support the Pass Plus course. Many offer discounts of 30% on the first insurance policy taken out by the newly qualified driver. See my 'Useful Info' page for a link to the Pass Plus website with more information about what the course covers.
Lessons are arranged between 9:30am-6pm Mon-Fri.
If I don't answer your call it is probably because I am teaching or driving!
Please leave a voice message or text and I'll get back to you ASAP.
All provisional licence holders lessons are taken in 'Jasmine' a Honda Jazz 1.2 SE,
manual petrol car, with air conditioning and fitted with He-Man dual controls
(for your safety and my sanity!!)
Full licence holders may use their own car by agreement once I have assessed your driving in my car, feel that your vehicle is safe for teaching use & have seen proof of valid insurance cover & MOT.
