I offer automatic driving lessons to complete beginners. More and more people are choosing to learn to drive without the added complexity of gears and the clutch pedal.


The sooner you are able to control the car, which is easier in an automatic, the sooner you will be become aware of your surroundings and concentrate on safely interacting with other traffic.​

Part Trained

If you have taken lessons before and are returning to driving after a break, or you're looking to switch from another driving instructor, I offer lessons to part trained drivers.


We would start with an introduction to the car and then an assessment of your driving.. This will result in a clear picture of what skills you already have and what you need to do to become a safe driver and pass your test.

Manual to Automatic

I am a specialist in automatic driving tuition. If you have tried driving a manual car and feel that it was not for you I can show you the advantages (and explain openly the few disadvantages) of driving an automatic car. 

If you had problems with, for example, clutch and gears, and problems arising from that, such as stalling when moving away from traffic lights and roundabouts, then driving an automatic is a clear solution. 

Confidence Building

Automatics are great for nervous and anxious drivers. For example, an automatic car will not stall (unless it has a fault) nor will it roll back on hills. Traffic lights and roundabouts becomes much less stressful, and it's much easier to keep up with the traffic flow on fast roads and deal with stop-start traffic conditions in cities.

Motorway Driving

I offer individually tailored, expert motorway driving tuition to:


a) learner drivers of sufficient ability

b) inexperienced recently qualified drivers

c) those nervous of motorways but nevertheless need to use them

Theory Test Pro

All my customers get full access to Theory Test Pro free of charge.

Theory Test Pro is a highly realistic online simulation of the UK's driving theory tests. It contains all the official revision test questions, and hazard perception videos, licenced from the DVSA, the people who set the tests. 

Access everything from a desktop, tablet or smartphone and you'll see how well you are doing, and in which topics, so you know what you need to revise.


From January 2020, two-hour lessons will be priced at £70.00 each when paid on the day. Pay in advance with a pre-paid block and receive a discount. An eight hour pre-paid block of 4 x 2 hour lessons is £249.
