Business overview


I am a DVSA Grade A Approved Driving Instructor and have been teaching for over 30 years

In 2021 I will be teaching in a brand new Toyota Yaris Hybrid (automatic)

The benefits of learning in an automatic are:

* No need to worry about a clutch or changing gears

* You can’t stall

* Hill starts are easier

* Less in-car distractions

* More suited to today’s complex traffic conditions

* You might pass your test sooner than if you were learning in a manual

* If you do pass your test quickly, you’ll save money on driving lessons

The disadvantages are:

* You will only be qualified to drive an automatic car

* If you wish to drive manual you will need to take another test

* Automatic driving lessons may be more expensive

Whether you're a total beginner or part trained, in a hurry or just taking your time it's no problem - all are very welcome.

High pass rate and hundreds of satisfied customers so why not add your name to the list!

Very professional and an absolutely amazing experience!

I must say that Sheila is absolutely amazing! I am currently taking some refresh driving lessons and I could not have asked for anyone else as it has been a while since I last drove. I would definitely recommend Sheila to all my friends and family as her professionalism shines through- very calm and positive attitude, makes me feel at ease and I could not praise her enough for her professionalism.
