As previousley mentioned I am a retired Police Sergeant who qualified as Class 1 Police Driver. I retired after 30yrs and was presented with certificateof exemplary service. As a result of my experience I am well aware of the importance of not only teaching people to drive but also the importance of laying the foundations for continued safe driving skills. In addition to providing practical driving instruction. I can help with the theory test, and on sucessfully passing the test am able to provide pass plus training and motorway familiarisation lessons. During my career I was aPolice Driving Assessorr which involved check testing police drivers to ensure that high standards were maintained.
We are pleased to welcome Steve to Class 1 Driving School. He has recently qualified as an ADI and will be a great asset . More details in the near future.
If you are a parent who has taught your son/daughter to drive and are not sure if they have reached the required standard for test we are able to carry out a mock driving test. This involves driving from the proximity of the test centre the candidate will be using, encountering the roads and conditions they may face on test day, independent driving, carrying out at least one of the required manouvers and also testing their knowledge on the show me/ tell me segment of the test. At the end of the mock test I provide written as well as verbal feedback. I have found that students who undertake a mock test are generally better prepared for the DSA Practical Driving Test. My pass rate is above the national average, currently running at 85-90 1st time passes.
If you are a visitor to the UK we can provide confidence building familiarisation lessons to get you accustomed to the UK's network of roads and it's laws. For many visitors to the UK you can only drive on your own country's licence for 1 year before having to take a UK driving test. I am happy to provide instruction in your own car or my car
I was trained as an Approved Driving Instructor by the British School of Motoring but felt that i wanted to remain indepent and not be franchaised to a large complany. I want to provide personal and individual instruction. By doing this it also helps me to provide driver training at an extremeley competative rate.
I would welcome the opportunity to earn your trust and deliver you the best service in the Weymouth and Dorchester area.
I have recently moved from the London area and am a very experienced instructor, I am of the opinion that to get the best out of a student, the lesson should be conducted in a calm friendly atmosphere, I have been described as laid back and easy going and not easily stressed. My students have ranged in ages from 17yrs to 60+yrs and from all parts of the world.
