"At 47 it was my resolution to be driving by the end of the year after years of promising friends and family but nerves getting the better of me. After numerous turbulent lessons, and stressful, but momentous hours I have achieved, with the help of my wonderful tutor, Dame Shirley the impossible."

Post Test Training

We offer special courses for the qualified driver. Whether you have just passed your test or have been driving for years, our instructors can give you the skills to drive with confidence.

The driving syllabus is limited. It is strongly recommended that you gain experience under the expert guidance of your instructor in different road conditions. Motorway driving is totally different from the type of driving you will have been used to and you may not have had the opportunity to drive at night. You should be prepared to have extra lessons to gain experience in a much wider variety of situations during the first few months after passing.
