Why train with us?

We provide car-driving lessons in Bracknell and Ascot, +E trailer training, Pass Plus and D1 minibus assessment and training in Berkshire Hampshire Oxford and Middlesex. I rely heavily on my reputation but my effectiveness is also down to training courses I attend and higher examinations In which I continue to excel.

Car lessons - Intensive courses are the most cost-effective way of passing your driving test. 3-hour sessions are a good compromise, as this will not tire you too much. As a guide you will need 30 hours.

Our Charges

See our description page in the Blog for latest fees : HERE

Hourly lessons are available. You will need about 40. (A DSA survey showed that an average 60 hours are needed by candidates throughout the country to pass the car test so you can save money by taking lessons with us). We can offer block discounts for 10 lessons (paid in advance)

Trailer lessons - Many drivers do not realise that they need to pass a test to pull their horseboxes or car trailers. Trailer towing and training based on a three-hour session. Please click on the trailer topic at left for more details.

Minibus training and assessments - Many schools and colleges ask us to check the driving ability of their staff. Since we have the Diploma in Driving Instruction, the Transport Manager's qualification in both national and international operations, full passenger carrying vehicle licenses and certificates and a Certificate in Education (just a few of our many qualifications), there is nobody more qualified in the area to perform this function. Please click on the minibus topic at left for more information

Fleet Training - Many companies wish to reduce transport costs by training their drivers in efficient driving. Safety improvements are a valuable spin-off. We offer daily courses. Please phone us to discuss your requirements.
