Covid-19 Statement

Driving Lessons are suspended until further notice.

The safety of my learner drivers is of paramount importance to me. In line with Government Guidance on the current Covid-19 Pandemic, I have temporarily suspended driving lessons, with approximate restart 4th December 2020 pending Government updates.

A message from Pete:

"After taking the very difficult decision to stop driving lessons during the first lockdown, I sadly have to do the same again due to recent restriction updates. I will contact all current students (and those who enquired over the last few months) directly once a plan is in place to resume lessons."
Thank you for your continued support - and stay safe!

    5 star review  I cannot recommend Peter enough! His patient manner and understanding of each individual is beyond commendable, and the manner in which he instills confidence in yourself and helps you to push through any nerves you may have! I now have the freedom I so desperately wanted, and a new experience to enjoy, and for that I cannot thank him enough.
