Learner Lessons

Learner Lessons are tailored for newly and partly trained pupils. We specialise in building confidence in a safe, fun and calm environment even for those who might be nervous.

In your lesson, we'll supply you with a track-record card so you can keep track of your progress and areas of development. If you are a beginner or partly trained, our tuition will get you ready for the road, leaving you looking forward to your next lesson and fully-prepared to successfully pass your driving test.

Pass Plus

Pass Plus is a practical course to help newly qualified drivers improve their driving skills. It is a 6 hour course which will be done in phases at times suitable to you.

On completing Pass Plus, you will receive a certificate from the DVSA which can help reduce the cost of your insurance premium.

Refresher Courses

Our Refresher Courses are for those who have not driven for some time since passing their test or for those who would like to enhance their driving skills. Whether it be motorway, roundabouts or night time driving we cover all aspects of driving.

Learning to drive with Ruth helped build my confidence and awareness as a new driver. I felt very safe learning to drive with her as my instructor. Her constant reminders helped ensure I stayed safe and reasonable on the road. Without a doubt she is an excellent teacher and will help learners excel in driving efficiently and safely.

By the time I signed up to drive with Ruth, my confidence was low as I had had a few driving instructors and had failed my driving test a number of times. Her style of teaching involved clear direction, empowering and enabling you to see how you will be able to drive beyond the driving test stage. She is good at giving useful tips which are helpful when one is nervous. I would recommend her as a great driving instructor.

Ruth took me on as a student after I had a terrible experience on an intensive driving course. If you have the absolute fear of driving lessons - that was me. Ruth is so calm and she never once raised her voice. She spots every single mistake, but conveys them in a thoughtful and fair way. I Passed my test the first time and I put that down to Ruth. She knows driving inside out, and is a teacher in the truest sense of the word.

Steven Henny | Student

I am very grateful to Ruth for her patient and expert instruction. She also helped guide my attitude - teaching me to be patient and aware of my surroundings. She told me what to expect for my driving test, prepared me with rehearsals and quizzes, and was a very reassuring presence on the day. Thank you, Ruth!

Andy Driver | Student

I had a great experience learning to drive with Ruth – she was my first and only instructor as I passed first time thanks to her excellent teaching. Ruth is patient, calm, reliable and friendly; exactly what I was hoping for in an instructor as a nervous first-time driver, learning in my 30s. I never felt uncomfortable with what I was asked to do and I arrived at my test feeling like I knew what to expect and what I needed to do to pass. I have recommended her to my friends and would do the same to anyone else!
