The Car

We mainly use the Toyota Yaris (Hybrid) or Ford Fiesta as our training vehicles. 

The Fiesta and Yaris are well equipped to help you pass your driving test. They are modern cars with all the latest safety and technology.

They include; lane departure warnings, speed sign recognition, reverse camera, dash-cam & built-in 

Sat-Nav etc.

Our cars have been fitted with industry leading 'He-man' dual controls - these allow our instructors, should they need, take control - so rest assured, you are in good hands.

Our thoughts on safety?​

Safety is something we take very seriously. We understand (as parents ourselves) that you want to be in safe hands - which is why we do everything possible to reduce the risk of becoming another statistic on Britain's road network. 

We don't just talk about safety, we're 'do-ers'. We understand the issues and problems with young drivers on our roads today.

From attitude to confidence and skill, we cover it all!

We also offer additional courses such as the Pass Plus scheme to help improve road safety. Our Pass Plus course enables drivers who have recently passed their practical driving test an opportunity to improve their driving skills further.

We introduce town / city driving, different types of weather and of course have more of an emphasis on driving on Britain's motorways.
