We pride ourselves on making learning to drive wonderfully simple. If you learn to drive with us you will progress quickly, gain confidence and enjoy your driving lessons! We use modern high spec tuition vehicles that are fitted with dual controls for maximum safety, we offer driving lessons in Torquay, Preston, Paignton, Brixham, Torbay, Totnes,
Newton Abbot and all the surrounding areas.
We want you to feel totally at ease when you begin learning to drive with us, so for your peace of mind, all of our highly qualified male and female driving instructors take regular training courses and are CRB checked. Our driving instructors teach from the Driver Vehicle and Standards Agency official syllabus, which means that your learning experience will be both comprehensive and enjoyable.
All of the driving courses listed can be taken as manual or automatic driving lessons.
Book regular weekly lessons! You can choose between 1 hour, 1.5 hour or 2 hour driving lessons and can book up to 6 hours per week.
If you need more lessons in a week than this, we recommend taking a semi-intensive or intensive driving course.

You can take 1 hour, 1.5 hour or 2 hour driving lessons.
Do you want to pass your driving test in just 1-2 months?
If so, then our semi-intensive driving course will be ideal for you! You can book up to 10 hours of lessons per week. If you think you will need more hours per week, we recommend intensive driving course.
Do you want to pass your driving test in just 1-2 weeks? If so, then our intensive driving course is ideal for you!
Learning to drive intensively does not suit everyone, so we recommend having a two hour assessment driving lesson prior to booking an intensive driving course. This will help us decide whether an intensive driving course will be the best choice for you.
After your assessment, we will book a suitable date for your practical driving test and then book your intensive driving course. You must have passed your theory to be able to book a practical test.
We want you to be a relaxed, confident and above all, safe driver for life. As a newly qualified driver, you have a 1 in 3 chance of having an accident during your first year of driving. However, you can significantly reduce the risk of this by completing the six hour Pass Plus driving course.
We not only cover the driving syllabus laid down by the DVSA, but we take your driving skills to a whole new level. You’ll be pleased to hear that there is no test involved, it is simply a continual assessment course. Most insurance companies recognise the Pass Plus qualification and may offer you a reduced insurance premium. In some cases, this can be up to 30%!
