Many learner students and their parents assume that all Driving Schools and Driving Instructors are the same! After all, they are qualified and trained to prepare you to pass your driving test, aren’t they?
Firstly, lets assume that your Instructor is fully qualified (not all instructors are! Be rest assured, ALL of our instructors ARE fully qualified!).
Instructors vary enormously in the way they teach the syllabus and the quality of their teaching. They also vary in customer skills when it comes to their patients and friendliness. It is quite disturbing that around 30% of all learner drivers feel the need to change their driving instructor before reaching test standard because of incompatibility issues or the lack of student progress.
Many Instructors work as sole operators and have no requirement for ongoing training. In fact, many independent Instructors never take any further training from the day that they qualified. Very few Driving Schools monitor their driving instructor’s performance and provide ongoing training to ensure they keep up to date with modern teaching methods.
It was for this reason that we opened our own Instructor Training Academy during 2017. The only way I was able to guarantee that we only recruited the very best Instructors, was to teach and prepare them ourselves.
All our school- trained instructors now must come through our own Training Academy and take a comprehensive 88+ hour course and qualify before they can teach any of our learner students.
As you can probably appreciate, the cost to prepare the very best Instructors is considerable.
Your driving lessons will adhere to the DVSA’s client centred policy and will be interactive so you will have a big input to how they are conducted. This policy eliminates many frustrations that students encounter with large amounts of time parked at the kerbside and endless hours of aimless driving around with no firm lesson objective.
Hopefully, I have been able to enlighten you as to why driving lesson prices vary enormously and explain why Driving Instructors are not all the same. Purchasing what appear to be ‘cheap’ lessons and a good deal is tempting, especially when on a tight budget, but like most things in life, there is often a hidden cost to cheap and that is quite often a much longer learning period, frustration at the lack of progress and the expense of a failed test and having to take further lessons.
We operate a 48-hour pre-pay policy.

These can be used before you begin a topic so that you come to the lesson with knowledge, or as a follow up to cement your knowledge and understanding.
