Latest News regarding training in lockdown. I know how frustrating it is at this time when you want to get back to training and get on the road. The current legislation on public transport seriously limits everyone's movements and the need to be able to drive is more than ever. However the latest information from the DVSA says that we still cannot return to training except for training Key Workers that are covered by the exceptions in place. This is because of the close proximity within the car and the sheer amount of touchpoints that could be potential transfer...read more..

Please feel free to sign this petition if you believe its about time people were penalised for driving like idiots around learner drivers.

The new manoeuvre that was introduced to the Driving Test has been causing quite a bit of press coverage. While I see that some people including driving instructors are saying that it is dangerous and should not be done, I have to say I disagree. I was involved in the trials beforehand and have safely carried it out with all my students since then. It is something that I myself have to do often. Several times a day. If you look at what it actually entails, then its no more dangerous than turning into a side road on the right. ...read more..

Yet again achieved the Top 3 position in Swansea based on a 50 point criteria set out by The Top 3 website. Having a great reputation comes from exceptional service and happy customers.

Over the past 4 years I have rated in the top 3 instructors in Swansea for 3 years. Narrowly missing out on the one year I didn't. For trusted training, quality customer care and all for a reasonable price, look no further! ...read more..
Due to the dwindling numbers taking part and the fact we can now use the motorway in lessons, it is with some sadness that I have to withdraw this service.

All the usual benefits from doing this course will still apply but the free course via the Local Council Pass Plus Cymru scheme will no longer be an option. More info on the Pass Plus course can be found HERE If you would like...read more..
