The Independent, family-run driving academy.
Are you looking at starting driving lessons for the first time? Can you drive but don’t have a full UK driving license yet? Have you already had some driving lessons but want to change your instructor? Or have you learnt the basics but need a boost to pass the practical test?
Maidstone Driving Academy courses are flexible and tailored to suit your needs with each driving lesson being planned around the individual driver.
If you are naturally nervous or anxious when it comes to driving I will ensure that the lesson is set at a speed that you feel relaxed and confident with, to ensure you get the most from your lesson.
If you prefer to work at a fast pace and want to pass your driving test quickly, Maidstone Driving Academy can accommodate this too. I have a friendly and patient teaching style with which even the most nervous of pupils will find themselves at ease and looking forward to their next driving lesson.

I can also provide further training for those who have a full license but who want to develop their skills further.

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.
