Do you want to pass your driving test?

Do you want to throw away those L plates for good? Then look no further than SJ Driving. My name is Sarah, and I’m an approved driving instructor (ADI).

SJ Driving has a track record of success. Whether you’re a first-timer or had trouble passing previously I will guide you through the learning process and give you the best chance of earning your full driving license.

I  am skilled in coaching students from a wide range of ages, abilities and confidence levels. SJ Driving prides itself on teaching students to a very high standard to become a safe driver, with confidence and competency. The driving skills you will learn from me will last you a lifetime.

Every lesson will be tailored to meet your specific needs. We will cover everything from the basics of the car and driving through to test preparation. SJ Driving will help you master all the notoriously difficult manoeuvres such as parallel parking and turn in the road. I will pass on all my driving knowledge and give you the tips you need to make driving easier. Together, we will turn those weaknesses into strengths.

The area I cover is Warwick, Leamington Spa, Kenilworth and surrounding areas. I specialise in routes from Warwick Test Centre. I am passionate about road safety and pupil safety. As an ADI, I have a current DBS (Criminal Records Bureau) certificate.

My Training Car:

SJ Driving uses a Ford Fiesta Eco (petrol). This car was carefully selected to maximise the chance of first-time success. The gear change is smooth, and you’ll find parking it a breeze.

Before your first lesson:

According to the UK traffic rules and regulations, which are laid down by The Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA), you are eligible to drive a vehicle on the roads of UK by the time you turn 17. At first, you will be required to get your provisional driving license. You can apply for one when you are 15 years and 9 months but it will be issued to you only after you turn 17 years.

Door to Door Service

With SJ Driving your driving lessons can start from home, work, college or even any central meeting point, the choice is yours.

No Car Sharing

All my driving lessons are based on a one to one tuition basis, we believe you will learn quicker so we will not pick up or drop off other pupils on driving lessons.

 

Although being flexible with lessons depending on ability a structure is sometimes needed.
