My goal is the same as my pupils: I would like them to reach test standard as soon as possible. This means that on the day of your test, you should have the skills and confidence to pass, but also the ability to continue on as a safe driver after gaining your full driving licence.

For nervous learners I am happy to start your driving lessons on quiet roads where there are fewer distractions. This will help us to build your confidence behind the wheel at your own pace.

The Coast School of Motoring lesson car is manual gearbox, modern, clean and well maintained. It's compact, and a good size for learners to get used to driving on the roads, as well as the manoeuvres! For the safety of all my pupils, the vehicle is fitted with dual controls.

Throughout your time with Coast you will be able to monitor your driving development with my Pupil Progress Cards. They are a great way for you to keep track of what you've learnt and the skill level reached.
