Our Team

We want to teach you to drive safely and confidently in as few driving lessons as possible. And we want you to enjoy yourself while you’re learning. Which is why we only have Driving Instructors in Surrey who are friendly, enthusiastic and love what they do.

Our Driving Instructors are ALL fully qualified, Driving Standards Agency approved and licensed. Please note we do not use trainee driving Instructors like most other schools.

And as part of our team’s continued professional development we encourage all instructors to keep updated by attending regular courses. We hold frequent meetings for all instructors which allows everyone to exchange ideas and keep informed of all the latest news and changes in the law.
