If would like to read about us in more detail, then here is the information on why YOU need to choose 1st 4 Driving as your driving school for driving lessons.

You need a driving school in your area that you can trust, and one that is backed by strong foundations and correct and proper teaching, which is not often found in most other driving schools. You need to know that the driving school you choose will get you through your driving test at a pace to suit you and not waste your valuable money and time. Driving lesson price can not necessarily guarantee all this.

While it’s true that the most expensive is not necessarily the best, it’s probably true that the cheapest won’t be. Buying driving lessons in Portsmouth is a life skill and something that shouldn’t be chosen by picking the cheapest driving lessons around. Your driving instructor needs to be honest and needs get you to where you want to be in a time frame that suits you. Therefore, what you want is the independence of driving on your own as soon as possible and as cheaply as possible. That’s where we come in.

  • 1st 4 Driving was established in 2000 and incorporated in 2005, so you know we’re here to stay for you.
  • We get you on the road to independence quicker with our proven systems.
  • While not the cheapest initially, we will save you £££s in the long run by reducing the overall amount of lessons you take.
  • Our high first-time pass rate ensures you don’t waste money on extra driving tests and driving lessons in Hastings.
  • Nobody really wants driving lessons or driving tests, you want to be driving your own car independently. That’s what we can do for YOU!

The highest qualified driving school owner in the country

1st 4 Driving was established in 2000 by Dave Foster MA, Dip.DI (AKA Driving School Dave), we are a company built on only the best values and ideals that you would expect and deserve from a driving school. Dave holds almost every relevant qualification in the driving field, including a Master’s Degree in Driver Training Education, meaning there is nobody better qualified to run a driving school.

But what does this actually mean?

In practice, it means that all of Dave’s knowledge cascades down through training to our driving instructors in Bournemouth, and ultimately on to you. We use the latest coaching methods to make it as easy as possible for you to pass your driving test and get on the road as quickly as possible. Currently based in sunny Cornwall, 1st 4 Driving now offers driving lessons across the south of England, and we’re now setting up our driving lessons in Bournemouth to help you pass your test.

But don’t just take our word for it – we’re biased!

We would say we’re the best driving school (because we are)… But look what other people are saying about us. You’ll know you’re in safe hands with our driving instructors, because we’ve helped so many happy people pass their driving test in Bournemouth and all across the South of England.

I would definitely recommend! I took my driving lessons with Tanya and would honestly say my driving improved 100% As a nervous/anxious driver, she helped me relax and feel more comfortable behind the wheel. Happy to say I passed and will suggest this driving school to anyone! Very happy.
