Driving lessons Basingstoke with a qualified instructor

My name is Mike and I have been providing driving lessons in Basingstoke since 2006. In that time I have helped hundreds of learner drivers successfully through their driving test.

My aim is that you not only pass your driving test first time, but also give you the high levels of driving skill and competency to ensure you many years of safe driving. My friendly and patient approach will allow you to get the most from every driving lesson.

With Independent Driving School you will benefit from:

An experienced local instructor

Excellent pass rate

Pupil record to keep track of your progress

Block booking discounts

Free access to Theory Test Pro to help pass your theory test

Evening & weekend lessons at no extra cost

The tuition vehicle is fitted with video recording equipment with forward and rear facing cameras allowing you to review your driving in-car and also if you wish you can take home a recording of your lesson to replay at home.

Learner drivers of all ages and abilities are welcome whether you are a complete beginner or a more experienced driver who already has their licence and wants to improve on existing driving skills and confidence.

To book your driving lessons or to ask any questions you may have, contact me today and find out what I can do for you. Please note at this time I only offer MANUAL driving lessons.
