Ash Vale

We are a recommended Ash Vale driving school and each of our instructors in Ash Vale has years of experience, helping people like you learn to drive. We provide great value and high-quality driving lessons in Ash Vale, with each of our Driving Standards Agency (DSA) registered instructors. We are also a member of the Driving Instructors Association. Our instructors are extremely familiar with the roads around Ash Vale meaning that they know the ideal spots for you to practise your driving skills.

Learning to drive can be an exciting and nerve-racking time. The potential freedom that driving offers is great but achieving the goal of passing your driving test can take some time.

We like to let our students progress at their own pace and although we will constantly push and challenge you to ensure you pass your test in a reasonable time, you will not feel pushed or stressed. We want our students to pass but more importantly for them to become careful, considerate and confident drivers, developing skills which will last them a life time.

Quiet roads

We are lucky that there are many roads around Ash Vale that are ideal for learning to drive. The quite areas of the village mean that these roads are ideal for learning important manoeuvres. 

These areas are perfect for getting used to the vehicle in your first few lessons but then giving you the time and space to practice manoeuvres such as parallel parking, three-point turns and hill starts. All of which are vital skills to driving and some of which will defiantly come up in your practical test.

You will receive a one-to-one attention driving lessons and a training program designed to make you a safe, confident driver.

Your first lessons

Our instructors will discuss your current driving ability with you. Whether you've had lessons elsewhere, you've been practising with a member of your family or perhaps this is your first ever lesson - it does not matter. We will guide you through the controls of the car and make sure that you are comfortable with how to adjust the mirrors and seat so that it's perfect for you. We do not want you to be distracted with being uncomfortable - you have enough to think about already.

For your first lesson, we will take you to a quite road and get you to practise the basics such as steering and pulling away in first gear. Regardless of your previous driving experience, it is good for us as instructors to see what level you are and to see if you have picked up any bad habits already.

Students are usually surprised after their first lesson. We get you into the car and into the driving seat as soon as possible. A lot of students comment on how they thought that the first lesson would be just an introduction to the car; they didn't think they would actually be driving on proper roads for their first lesson. This is important though as the sooner you get behind the wheel, the quicker you will become comfortable with driving. The sooner that happens, the sooner you can pass your test and go out, on your own, exploring and visiting friends.
