Essex Driving School

I am a driving instructor from Stanford-le-Hope who is highly qualified and have been offering my services to learner drivers for many years.

My driving school has been established since 2008 and since then, I have been teaching pupils of all ages to drive. I am happy to say that many of those pupils have passed first time with me, thanks to my expert tuition.

My driving lessons are taught on a one to one basis, strictly no car sharing

I work 9am to 6pm Mon – Fri. My rates are very affordable. I am based in Stanford-le-Hope, Essex but will travel to Corringham, Horndon on the Hill, Linford as well as Orsett.
