Driving Lessons Borehamwood Driving Instructor

Yes, we provide intensive courses for learning to drive.

There’s no such thing as a “Guaranteed Pass”.

Every pupil is different. Some require very few lessons and pass first time, while others require more time as a pupil to overcome sticking points.

Even with the best driving instructor, it’s down to the pupil to become proficient at driving in order to pass the practical driving test.

Nobody can guarantee that you will meet that standard. It’s down to you to follow your driving instructor’s advice and put in enough practise.

Currently, we only teach on a manual gearbox. Sorry.

If you pass your test on an automatic, your driving licence will be restricted, allowing you to ONLY drive automatics.

Learning to drive on a manual, and then taking your test on a manual, will give you the option to drive either a manual or automatic.

We have had pupils take their tests at the following Driving Test Centres:

  • Borehamwood
  • St. Albans
  • Watford
  • Pinner
  • Hendon
  • Mill Hill
  • Barnet
  • Enfield
  • Stevenage
  • Bishop’s Stortford
  • Hemel Hempstead

Yes, depending on where. We try to accommodate pupils wherever possible. 

We encourage pupils to share online their experience with us, such as posting pictures and talking about their progress in each driving lesson.

However, during a driving lesson, we don’t take photos for two reasons:

  1. You are paying for a driving lesson, not a photo shoot. When you pay for a 2-hour driving lesson, that’s what we give you.
  2. During a driving lesson, the instructor needs to be fully in control of the situation, and the pupil driver must be focused on their driving. So nobody will be taking photos during a driving lesson.

We’re happy to take pictures before the lesson begins and after the lesson ends, and encourage pupils to post those on social media.

We’re about the memories and the fun experience, as well as guiding you to gaining your driving licence. We definitely want you to create a record of your time learning to drive, so that you can look back on it later.
