The Main reason why I Chose Drive School of Motoring

Customer Reviews Bethany Hill

Customer Reviews – Bethany Hill

Good instructing, not the cheapest, but I passed first time so worth it. Instructors can be quite busy so you have to book lessons for a fixed time otherwise you’re unlikely to get a lesson. Nice car to learn in, good school overall and I would encourage anyone to go with them.”

Success Based


That Deliver

Not all driving lessons are the same and adopting the new client centred approach where interaction with you the student is crucial when we decide together, what subjects will be covered and how we are going to manage them.

The Main reason why I Chose Drive School of Motoring

Customer Reviews Basildon - Andrew Sivell

Customer Reviews – Andrew Sivell

“When looking for a driving instructor, I needed someone who could reduce my nerves when driving and help me to be more confident and also someone who was local and trustworthy. Learning to drive was harder than I had contemplated it would be but, I found Colin’s teaching methods suited me much better than my previous instructor. Previously, I had been learning to drive for about two years and had failed numerous driving tests but, after just a couple of months with Colin’s tuition I learned to be much more confident and, I passed my driving test on the first attempt. I have already told my younger brother and older sister to choose Colin as, I believe he’s the best instructor there is. Colin was an absolute gem, I’m glad I found his driving school or I would still be learning now, I will miss him.”

“When choosing a driving school, it was important to find a school who were experienced with a good local track record and, it was also important to find a school which had availability that suited my schedule. At first learning was more difficult than I expected but, after a short time I really began to enjoy my lessons. Colin explained things very thoroughly and I found the use of picture diagrams extremely useful. I had a great time being taught and don’t think I would change anything, and have told all my friends to use Drive School of Motoring.”

Drive School of Motoring- Top Rated Driving Lessons in Essex

There are many driving schools around the county of Essex but they don’t come any more recommended than Drive School of Motoring. This highly reputable company has become a leading supplier of driving lessons partly thanks to the quality and structured tuition it provides.

Today’s driving schools provide discounts for beginners and new students as the industry becomes highly competitive. We are no different however we try to bring something different to the table & our most popular package, the “Try Us and See” deal, enables learners to try us out first before proceeding with any future lessons. We also offer huge discounts to anyone committing to a block of ten lessons or more and  if you’re not entirely satisfied with any part of our service, we’ll refund you in full.

Our online review section has helped us become one of the top rated schools in Essex. It provides us with the knowledge we need to know what our customers want. From there on in we are able to sell our training courses & individual lessons knowing full well they meet our customers needs.

We have strict policies & guidelines which our driving instructors already follow allowing for best practice & client centred learning. These are now the benchmark for instruction throughout the industry. Actual driving lessons are available with either female or male teachers ensuring our customers are at ease whilst carrying out their lessons.

All our lessons are set out in a logical way starting with initial training in a very quiet housing estate. This enables you to gain confidence mastering the controls of the car without the distraction of busy roads. As you learn more within this environment you will grow in experience which will give you the ability to handle more difficult procedures from the learning syllabus.

We encourage our customers to practice with family or friends wherever possible. As they say, practice makes perfect & learning to drive is no different. Your lesson report should be able to assist you in identifying areas where you might need more practice. You should find practicing in areas that you have already been learning on your driving lessons more beneficial than trying to master new techniques you haven’t covered yet.

It is recommended you get your theory test done as early as possible as you will then understand the practicalities of driving before you get behind the wheel of a car. Your driving instructor will also be able to book your practical test as soon as you are ready without any delays.

When you can master your driving lessons without any serious errors you’re ready to take your test. It is important leading up to your test date that you try to get in as much practice as you can. Many students blame nerves when they fail their test but if you can drill procedures in to your head through regular practice you stand a better chance of achieving a pass.

We have a very high 1st time pass rate at Driving School of Motoring solely because we follow the structured steps we have outlined earlier. When our customers arrive at the test centre, they usually feel confident they will pass and generally they do first time.

Best of luck with your tuition.

Colin Lott, School owner.
