Our instructors will attend lessons in cars fitted with dual controls and air conditioning and will provide you with a structured training course tailored to your individual needs.

Your Driving Test

The Multiple Choice Theory and Hazard Perception tests are taken at a test centre. It is recommended that Driving Lessons should be taken with a proficient instructor, they will help you to practice and prepare for the Practical Driving Test. It is at this test where you need to show the examiner that you can drive safely without supervision on the roads.

Eco - Safe Driving

Be an ‘eco-safe’ driver or rider and contribute to road safety as well as reducing your fuel consumption and vehicle emissions. Making changes to your driving or riding style will also save you money. From September 2008, anyone sitting a driving test will also get feedback on their eco-safe driving manner.

Pass Plus

Pass Plus is a training course specifically aimed at new drivers, designed by the Driving Standards Agency (DSA). Pass Plus will build upon your existing skills and knowledge, 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.

Some Student Testimonials

Lindon is the man, the myth, the legend, and what makes him fantastic is that he will always be patient and calm no matter what mistakes you do, and with that my confidence grew every week. He’s not just a great instructor but he’s also a great person. I would highly recommend him.

Bokor Abu

Having failed a few tests with previous instructors. I had really bad nerves. Just having a few hours driving with Lindon, he quickly addressed things I could improve, whilst being positive and constructive. I passed straight away with lindon. Great Instructor – I would recommend to anyone.

Jessica Davies

After being recommended Lindon by my sister, I found that he was very calm and patient which really helped especially as I didn’t know too much about cars at first. Each week Lindon helped me progress steadily and made me more and more confident whilst driving. Lindon always brightened up the lessons by having a good sense of humour making the lessons enjoyable. I will highly recommend Lindon to others in the area too.

Tia Shea

I was nervous to learn to drive but Lindon was always so calm and reassuring as well as informative and I ended up enjoying every lesson. I will continue to recommend Lindon to anyone who wants to learn.
