All of our driving instructors are fully qualified DVSADI’s this means that they are Driving & Vehicle Standards Approved Driving Instructors, and that they have been police CRB checked.
The driving courses they offer vary depending on your experience, if you are a beginner then the ADI(Approved Driving Instructor) will start from the beginning for you and work on the basics
If you are more experienced then the course will be based on what you already know and perhaps become more advanced.
We use coaching methods in our teaching so it will always be a joint decision on how the course is structured for you.
