Your Seven Part Guarantee

1. You will get a fully qualified instructor, yes some driving schools use trainee’s who only have a six month licence so they may leave during your course!

2. You will get all the help you need with your Theory and Hazard Perception tests, Oh! and of course your driving. Others leave you to do the Theory etc. on your own.

3. You will have a progress record to show you how well you are doing You can also show your mates how you are getting on too!

4. All lessons are on a one to one basis unless you want to learn with a friend and share costs  If you like the idea of learning with a friend we see nothing wrong with that, it saves you money, reduces learning time and helps build confidence. We will never pair you up with a stranger, the request for two to one training has to come from you  see T’s & C’s.

5. Getting it wrong is all part of the learning process, we don’t shout or bite!!

6. We set you achievable goals. (with a bit of hard work)

Minibus Legal Requirements

Did you know that the following items are legally required in most minibuses ? Where the windows are marked 'EMERGENCY EXIT' you must have Glass Break Hammers next to the window, these hammers should not be removed in order to prevent them being stolen and should not be stored in the front document box (glove box). If you have an emergency and the minibus is on its side, possibly in a ditch, and filling with water quick access to the hammers is vital. If you have a high rate of theft of these hammers there are hammers available which have retractable cords and have removal alarms fitted. We can supply at £25.00 each
