Standard Lessons

Starting out

You’ll start by learning the basics, then move on to moving and controlling the car safely and with confidence in a quiet and safe area. Once you’ve mastered that you’ll start driving on busier roads, dealing with other road users, junctions and traffic signals. You’ll learn how anticipate and avoid upcoming hazards and, most importantly, how to enjoy driving!

Lessons start with pick up at an agreed time and place and finish with drop off within the area covered. I often collect pupils from their school or college and finish the lesson at their home address.

Many new pupils find that ‘double booking’ 2 hour lessons is a great way to quickly pick up the basic skills. Whether you decide to do this or not, your lesson schedule is always flexible; you can take longer or shorter lessons to suit your pocket and needs. Some people find they like longer lessons, others feel tired if they drive for a long time. All I ask is that you let me know the lesson before.


One of the most common areas that people struggle with is the dreaded manoeuvres! You’ll be shown simple and effective methods of tackling and successfully completing all of these, whether it’s tricky parallel parking or reversing around a corner. I’ll correct any mistakes you are making and make sure to take things at a pace that you are happy with.


I charge £27 per lesson. All lessons are for a full hour and include pick up from a location that is convenient for you.

New drivers can take advantage of my popular “5 for £99″ offer. You can also book your driving lessons in bulk:

  • 10 hours for £234 (including the first 5 for £99)
  • 20 hours for £504 (including the first 5 for £99)

If you need to pass quickly, consider taking an intensive driving course.


Learn at your own pace. Everyone is different, so try not to compare yourself to friends or family. It is not a competition. Passing your test quickly doesn’t necessarily mean that you are a good driver. It simply means that you have achieved at least the minimum standard required to be considered safe on the roads.

Random Testimonial

  • “I finally passed my test with Neil as my instructor. I knew how to drive (or thought I did, having driven over 100,000 miles before, in other countries), but did not know how to drive consistently and correctly enough to pass the UK test. I had already failed 3 attempts before meeting Neil. There was a lot of ground to cover to unlearn bad driving habits that I had accumulated and been accustomed to over the years, before relearning safe and correct driving. Neil expertly made me aware of all my bad driving habits, and through providing extremely simple tips to overcome them and gently cajoling and supporting me in equal measure, ensured that I passed with only 3 minor errors – a testimony to his ‘different strokes for different folks’ approach to imparting good driving skills. Really grateful to Neil for not only getting me successfully through the test, but also teaching me to be a good driver – his tips for safe and correct driving will not be easily forgotten. I would wholeheartedly recommend Neil to anybody looking for a very effective, friendly yet results-orientated driving instructor.”
