Introducing your virtual instructor


Want to book in some extra driving training without the small talk and the uncomfortable car seats. You could even enjoy some extra training from the comfort of your pyjamas on the sofa…

We’re proud to launch a brand-new training feature which will enable learner drivers to access a plethora of online training videos designed to supplement and compliment their driving lessons. With skills to enhance your understanding of driving theory and tips on how to read signs, how to interpret signals, and how to perfect even the most complex manoeuvres, this new feature including hours of content for every learner style.

Here’s all you need to know about the virtual driving platform and how it can help you learn to be a better driver.

Is it as good as driving in real life?

First up, nothing will replace physical driving lessons (and no, sadly you can’t do those in your pyjamas).

However, what this new tool will do is supplement lessons and allow learners to practice and immerse themselves in theory training and virtual driving experiences in between lessons. This will help to save those crucial few minutes of every lesson that are spent refreshing the past few sessions, instead letting you dive right in and action what you’ve learnt online.

What does the virtual training cover?

The short answer – everything! Created and designed by a Grade A DVSA driving instructor with over 15 years of experience in training and teaching people how to drive, the content covers all of the common sticking points and obstacles, introducing you to concepts and questions that may arise in your driving test and lessons.

The content even includes support on applying for your driving licence and how to get your test booked – making it a one-stop shop for everything driving related.

I was taught by Geoff for about 2 months and I went to my test and passed the first time with this company and I would highly recommend Geoff and the company ad he teaches really well, he ensures that you end up being a driver and not a learner and i felt that is a really respectable quality when it comes to a teacher. I could not say any bad experience and was extremely happy

For any one wanting to learn to drive but not sure who to go with I definitely recommend Nayland, with his great help I passed first time and in just over three months, the lessons were great I always looked forward to them as Michael is a lovely guy and very down to earth, and up for a laugh 🙂 but he is also very patient for any one who is nervous about driving. 🙂

Thanks a lot to Dave, very calm and professional instructor. Passed after 20h, would definitely recommend.

I passed my test first time, I didn’t need to use any other instructor as Michael gave me all the advice I needed, down to earth, practical and easy to understand. While learning to drive can be stressful, Micheal made it so easy for me. I enjoyed learning and looked forward to the lessons as they were really enjoyable, if you want to learn to drive with someone that will make it enjoyable and practical Micheal is the guy! guy.

Before having Michael as a driving instructor I was with someone else! I was given his number through a recommendation, and his lessons gave me the confidence to pass my test! Michael has great prices and deals, to suit anyone! I have now been driving a year, and I have recommended many people to go with him and they have gone on to pass very fast! 🙂
