About Maidstone Driving AcademyFind out more about Maidstone's favourite Driving School
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.

For those of you new to driving, all driving lessons are structured with simple and easy manoeuvre techniques being taught steadily as you progress, developing your skills and confidence with each lesson. I can also provide further training for those who have a full license but who want to develop their skills further.

Pete has now taught two of my children to drive and I know they're confident and safe on the road. He was reassuring and patient with both of them, provided written updates of their progress and thoroughly prepared them both to take their tests. Highly recommended! ....now could I just book you in advance for child no 3 when he turns 17 in Feb 2024? 😂

I would like to say how amazing Pete is as an instructor and a friend! In April, I had no clue as to how I would even start an engine let alone drive a car but with great lessons and hard work from both of us I managed to pass first time just ready for Christmas. He is a very patient man always thinking of new strategy’s and ways to help - he will never give up! Thanks Pete! Katie B

Pete is very friendly and patient, makes you feel at ease straight away. I didn’t start from scratch but he was very observant at picking up the bad habits I needed to get out of to get my license back!
