I started my independent driving school in Chester after working as a fully-qualified approved driving instructor (ADI) for large national and local driving schools (AA Driving School and BSM).


I have been teaching people to drive for more than fifteen years and I've helped many beginners to become skilled, safe and confident drivers.

Many of my former customers have been kind enough to leave reviews of their experiences learning to drive with Steve Paddy Driving School. Please take a little time to take a look.



Achieving a low carbon, sustainable future will be a challenge for society but I believe that we can all play our part: for this reason I have chosen the new 100% electric automatic Nissan LEAF as my tuition vehicle. It's zero emissions, equipped with with the latest safety technology and driver aids and very importantly, the electricity I use to charge it is from 100% renewable wind and solar sources. 

More and more people are choosing to drive automatic cars and this trend will continue. One reason for this is because cars are changing: modern ultra-low and zero emission vehicles such as hybrids, plug-in hybrids and 100% electric cars are all automatic - and always will be. I have been teaching in a Nissan LEAF (first and second generation models) for almost five years now and I've never had a customer who didn't love the car. It's quiet, powerful and refined making it as well incredibly easy and pleasant to drive.
