We are a recommended Mitcham (CR4) driving school and have been established for over 12 years'. We offer excellent quality driving tuition with our Driving Standards Agency registered instructors and we are a members of the Driving Instructors Association. Our instructors are very familiar with the local roads and those around the nearest test centre.

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

Fortunately for our instructors covering Mitcham, there are some quiet roads ideal as learner areas and suitable also for the 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.
