Congratulations to our local students who now have the freedom of the road.

We are delighted that the following learner drivers, who are all from the Basildon area have now completed the learner syllabus and are now proud owners of full driving licences.

“I have recently just passed my driving test and I would love to thank Colin for all his help and support along the way! I honestly believe that I wouldn’t had passed if it wasn’t for his consistent support, advice and guidance.

He was very friendly and will make you feel more than comfortable behind the wheel! If there are any elements that you are unsure of he will ensure that he goes over it with you again and again until you feel comfortable with it. He is patient and welcomes you to make mistakes, so you can have the option to learn from them!

I will miss my lessons with Colin, but I am so happy that I have passed my driving test and can now be on the road alone! As I stated, I wouldn’t had done this without Colin and honestly cannot recommend him enough! Thank you Colin once again!”

A huge well done to Mihnea Bota from Basildon who passed his practical driving test on the 8th of October on his very 1st attempt.

Now you need to try not to look too smug when you tell all your friends you passed with fewer driving faults than all of them, only two, really well done.

Congratulations from your driving instructor Colin Lott and from all of the team here at Drive School of Motoring.

What a great drive today, really well done to Sophia Rust from Basildon who passed her practical driving test on the 12th of October.

It was really nice to hear the driving examiner compliment you on just how well you drove, you must have impressed her.

A huge congratulations from your driving instructor Colin Lott and from all of the team here at Drive School of Motoring.

A huge congratulations to Uche Ezeh from Basildon, who passed her manual practical driving test on the 23rd of October on her 1st attempt, well done you!

Looking forward to doing some extra lessons in your husband’s car, great to see you looking to be the best you can be behind the wheel.

Well done from your driving instructor Colin Lott and from all of the team here at Drive School of Motoring.

“For many years (too many years to publicly admit) I had been saying I will upgrade my licence from automatic to a full manual licence, but understandably other life priorities took precedence.

One day I was walking somewhere in Basildon and a red learner driving car passed me with a Google advert sign on the side and I must have taken note because about a week later, I Googled driving schools in Basildon and Drive School of Motoring (D.S.M) was one of the schools that popped up (it turned out to be that the red car belonged to Colin Lott from D.S.M).

I read the reviews and was attracted by the success rate and money back guarantee so I called Colin to book a block of lessons. Colin was professional from the beginning but also human and laughed at my jokes, which is always a plus. He has a great approach to adapt his teaching to your personal learning style and apply a critical adult-learning approach. This ensured that I was involved in setting my weekly objectives, met my weekly learning outcomes and could reflect on the lessons learning at the end of each session. As an ‘experienced’ driver it was a challenge to let go of my past learning and ‘bad’ habits that I had acquired over the years, but with Colin’s tutoring, dry sense of humour and encouragement I was able to gain the skills and confidence I needed in a good amount of time and pass my practical test first time.

I would highly recommend Drive School of Motoring and Colin Lott as a driving instructor and tutor for the competitive pricing, professionalism and documented success rate.”
