Friendly, reliable instructors
Had a bad experience with a driving instructor? Heard some horror stories from your friends? Think that all driving instructors ‘shout’?
Not all driving schools were created equal.
Our driving instructors in Exeter are friendly, always on time and they will never ‘shout’ at you. We hear so many horror stories about instructors from other driving schools being rude, abrupt, and even raising their voice. This does not encourage learning and doesn’t make learning to drive fun in any way.
When you book driving lessons with us, each lesson will be fun, productive and you’ll learn new skills that will help you for life. Not just for the test day.

Don’t just take our word for it…
We pride ourselves on our great reviews from pupils.
Excellent – Ashley made it super easy for me to learn to drive, I felt very confident within just a few lessons. The atmosphere was always relaxed and supportive, I certainly made plenty of mistakes but Ashley always discussed them with me in a way that really made me learn from them and be able to adjust my driving in future. Lessons were fun, and I learned at a very rapid pace because of how good the systems and approaches Ashley taught me – parallel parking? Piece of cake. Reverse bay parking? Got it on lock. I’d literally have to try to mess these up to not do them perfectly because of how easy Ashley’s systems work – all of my friends complained about how difficult parallel parking was and I just never had that. Great instructor, very pleased.

Learning to drive in Exeter made fun
Unlike most driving schools, we’ve been helping Exonians pass their driving test for years. We literally know Exeter like the backs of our hands.
From the main test routes to those tricky back roads and the busy city centre, your driving instructor will make sure that you’re fully prepared for your driving test and a life of driving beyond that. Exeter is also really well connected to other parts of the country, meaning it’s a great place to learn to drive. The A30 and A38 dual carriageways running through Devon and Cornwall are a great practice ground for the faster roads, and you’ll eventually be ready to tackle the M5 motorway heading north.
Did you know – we also cover Crediton.
Our instructors in the area are Exonians through and through (unlike the big national schools) and will be able to help you with any local transport knowledge. You’ll master all the tricky roundabouts, junctions and the area around the test centre on Thorverton Road in Marsh Barton.
