Why LOCAL Learner Drivers

Chose Independent Driving

Phillipa Bartlett, Taunton

Tiyah Williams, Bournemouth.

“The main reason I chose Independent Driving School was because I found them by using Google for the top driving schools in Bournemouth as I was new to the area.
I liked the look of the independent driving school so I went with them for my lessons whilst I was at university. Which I’m so glad I did as I was able to pass first time, my instructor Darren (who I highly recommend) was amazing and helped me to become more confident with hill starts and driving on dual carriageways.
The advice I would offer someone learning to drive or thinking of taking their driving test is make sure you are comfortable with the car and the instructor as it will make the learning experience more enjoyable.
There is also no rush to take your test but when you do make sure you trust your own driving skills and are comfortable on the road.”
Phillipa Bartlett, Taunton

Ashley Light, Blandford.

“The main reason I chose Independent Driving School was when I noticed other people’s good reviews and decided to go with them.

My driving instructor was Matt Hitt. It was only last year in September when I wanted to progress and get more independent that I came to Independent Driving School and got given Matt. I’m proud to say I made the right decision.

He was very flexible working around my difficult work pattern and catered to what I was after. A very friendly supportive guy I would recommend him to anyone who is wanting to learn to drive any day. 

If he noticed any mistake, he will guide you through it so it don’t happen a second time… I don’t think I can come up with anything that can be improved really.

I would like to thank Matt for being patient and supportive when it comes to learning to drive.”

Rebekah Smith, Poole.

“The main reason I chose Independent Driving School was because two years after I started driving, I had gone through two instructors and moved to a new area. Desperate to pass my test before going to Uni, I found Independent Driving after a Google search.

It took just one lesson with Darren to know I was in safe hands – he was the first instructor that seemed to have confidence in me and it made all the difference.

Suddenly, I felt ready, capable and able to learn. I was really intimidated by manoeuvres before but now it all seemed to come naturally.

Darren is great, patient, calm and hugely constructive with his feedback. Lessons seemed to fly by.

Darren’s teaching means that now, I don’t just know how to pass a driving test, but I know how to be a good driver. I would highly recommend!”

Independent Driving Top Rated Driving Lessons in Dorset.

 If you’re looking for a Professional Driving School that comes highly recommended with a particularly high first time pass rate we are the school for you. Independent Driving serves the county of Dorset bringing you the highly trained driving instructors you need to pass your practical driving test.

Our instructors are male or female with a wide variety of levels of experience, however all bring the very latest techniques & methods to the table. Our highly popular “try us & see” service gives learner drivers the opportunity to see if we are suitable for their needs before booking additional lessons.

Like many other instructors, we also provide discounts for beginners & new students & we offer a full money back guarantee if you are not entirely happy with our service. We also offer large discounts for block bookings of 10 lessons or more.

As mentioned in our opening paragraph we are particularly proud of our first time pass rate which is considerably above the national average. What is our secret? We have a proven system that ensures that our driving instructors follow our best practice guidelines & procedures.

Our structured system will feature a complete plan of action broken down for you so you can see where you are up to with regard to your progress within the driving school syllabus & what you need to do to get to the level where you are ready to take your test.

We do encourage practice with family & friends provided it is used in a way that will assist & improve your driving abilities ready for your next lessons. Ideally you would practice the areas that have been highlighted for you on your reflective log so as to reduce the length of time you need to cover them in your actual lessons.

For example if you are struggling with your bay park manoeuvre then it would make sense to go somewhere quite & practice as often as you can whilst out with friends & family. Once you can demonstrate you are able to carry out the procedure confidently & error free then your instructor will then move you on to the next step of the syllabus.

However if your instructor thinks you need more practice you will continue where you left off until you have mastered it. This example demonstrates the importance of using your practice time wisely.

You should ensure that you complete your theory examination as quickly as possible. This will benefit you as it gives you a better understanding of the practical side. It will also allow for your instructor to book you in for your test as soon as you are ready without any unnecessary delays.
